The first season of Vikings: Valhalla did not disappoint, and we are eagerly anticipating the second season. It will ultimately be available on Netflix, however, it will not be available in June 2022.
Vikings: Valhalla follows up 100 years after the events of History’s Vikings, with a fresh group of adventurers. Of course, there are battles between them. What do we anticipate from those seeking to rule Kattegat?
We are unquestionably prepared for more. The good news is that there will be more. Netflix has revealed that the series will be renewed for two more seasons, each with eight episodes like the first. Now all eyes are on the arrival of those seasons. Right now, we know that Vikings: Valhalla season 2 will not be released on Netflix this month.
When will the second season of Vikings: Valhalla be available on Netflix?
Netflix revealed a release year for the second season when it confirmed the second and third seasons. It won’t happen until 2023, at the earliest. Despite the fact that filming has already been completed. The show is currently in post-production, and it appears that it will take some time.
At this time, we’re anticipating early 2023. It’s possible that Netflix prefers to offer material on an annual basis as much as possible. A faster turnaround time is beneficial to the future of shows.
The good news is that Vikings: Valhalla is one of the Netflix Geeked Week shows with upcoming announcements. This is a relatively new feature that allows Netflix to provide tidbits of information about a variety of popular shows. On Monday, June 6, we’ll learn more about the Viking’s spin-off.
This could be a sneak peek at the upcoming second season. It’s also possible that it’ll be a release month. The latter is what we’re looking for. Even if we don’t know the exact day, knowing the month of 2023 will give us something to anticipate. At the end of this Viking-free tunnel, there will be a little light.
Who’s back for season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla?
Several cast members from the second season of Vikings: Valhalla is scheduled to return. Sam Corlett (Leif), Leo Suter (Harald), Frida Gustavsson (Freydis), Laura Berlin (Emma de Normandie), David Oakes (Godwin), and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson are among the cast members (Olaf).
Given how prominently they appeared in the first season, Sren Pilmark (Forkbeard), Bradley Freegard (Canute), and Pollyanna McIntosh (lfgifu) will almost certainly return.
One addition has been confirmed: Florian Munteanu, who previously appeared in Shang-Chi as Razor Fist, will play Maniakes, a Byzantine general.
Caroline Henderson is one of those who are unlikely to be included in the second season (Haakon). During the eighth and last episode of the first season, the Jarl of Kattegat met her demise.
However, the possibility of a return remains open. According to Henderson, who spoke to Metro (which opens in a separate tab), “We have no way of knowing if [she won’t return]. She might appear in the form of a ghost or whatever.”
What will be the story in the second season of Vikings: Valhalla?
“What I enjoy about the launchpad for season two is that we’re not going to return to Kattegat and everything’s going to be fine,” Stuart said to GamesRadar+, implying that the port colony will be impacted hard by conflict and strife.
To say the least, that’s an understatement. The first season ended with various pieces on the board scattering across Scandinavia and Europe in search of glory, resulting in several power dynamics altering.
For a brief moment, Kattegat had a new ruler. Until he saw Forkbeard’s fleet docking, Olaf was in command. Expect a power vacuum – and possibly warfare – now that Haakon is no longer in charge of Kattegat.
But that isn’t likely to be Harald. He and his on-again, off-again lover Freydis barely made it out of Kattegat alive. After siding with Kre, the Norwegian prince has become the public enemy number one in the eyes of certain Vikings. Meanwhile, Freydis will have to contend with her newfound role as ‘The Last’ – and possibly savior of the Vikings.
In England, Emma has reclaimed the throne and, for the time being, has a staunch ally in Godwin, who is assisting her in fending off any retaliation from lfgifu. Mercia is expected to emerge as a new threat, and who knows how long they can be kept at bay?
In the second season, there may even be more room for slower, more measured scenes. “While I loved the speed and the quick pace,” Stuart said of the first season, “my favorite element of season one was restricting the number of people, moving them in different orbits, and creating those surprises.”
Finally, it’s possible that a time jump is on the road. Stuart is considering jumping through the decades, albeit it may not happen in the second season. 1066 and the end of the Viking period are his plans for Valhalla’s endgame.
