The Viking’s spin-off is going to release soon and the complete series is worthy of watching. The creators announced Vikings: Valhalla in November 2019. If you are a die-hard fan of the History Channel show Vikings that won an Emmy, then you know how much the show held power from 2013 to 2020. After six successful seasons, a new era of Vikings: Valhalla will be introduced to the audiences.
Vikings: Valhalla Release Date
Netflix is the home to the top shows and obviously, it cannot say no to a show like Vikings: Valhalla. The latest flagship Vikings will be full of history and drama. It will debut on Netflix on February 25th, Friday. Netflix is famous for making midnight releases. So, the show will air at 3 a.m. at midnight Pacific Easter. The viewers can binge-watch all eight episodes but the rawness of this series will attract you the most.
Vikings: Valhalla Plot
You, the audience will transport you back to the 11th century where you will be introduced to the legendary Vikings. Leif Eriksson, Harald Hardrada, the Norman King famously named William the Conqueror and Freydis Eriksdotter are the main characters in the series.
After the massive Valhalla storm brings destruction for over 100 years in the future, the audiences see the new era of Vikings. The Kingdom of England fiercely resists the havoc created by the Scandinavian invaders. Soon after King Edward’s death, we will see the rise of the vicious trio who are fighting to get the legal rights to the throne. However, this has massively changed the future and the audiences will be a part of this transformative journey.
In case, you are wondering if the storyline has any resemblance to the previous series, Vikings, Micheal Hirst clarified to Collider,
“What Jeb [Stuart] does is he pays attention to the mythology of the Vikings. So whenever they meet in the great hall in Kattegat, and of course, they talk about the great eras who used to sit in the same hall at the same table, and they were Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha, Bjorn Ironside, and Ivar the Boneless, who are now mythic characters even within the show, even within Vikings: Valhalla. That’s a great connection and effect. It gives ready-made histories to the new show. So you don’t need to know who Ragnar is to watch the new show. But it enriches the show and it hopefully will make people go back and find out, ‘Well who are these people they keep talking about? Was Ragnar so great? Why are these people mythic characters?’ So everything connects in a useful, interesting, and fascinating way.”
Vikings: Valhalla Cast
The most mention-worthy person is the creator and writer Michael Hirst who is also an executive producer along with MGM Television. No one can doubt the screenwriting vision of Jen Stuart who is co-writing this series. The authenticity with the right amount of all the different elements will awaken emotions in the user’s mind. Even the team of directors will bring their ideas to life. Steve Saint Leger will be directing three episodes and the rest will be directed by Niels Arden Oplev as well as Hannah Quinn.
