If you’re a fan of vikings, period dramas, and/or History’s Vikings, Vikings: Valhalla is the Netflix show for you! The series is a sequel to History’s Vikings, which premiered on History in 2013 and ran for six seasons through 2020. Netflix picked up the sequel and it premiered in 2022.

Vikings: Valhalla tells the stories and journeys of Leif Eriksen (Sam Corlett), Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter), and Freydís Eiríksdóttir (Friday Gustavsson) during the 11th century. It’s set a little more than 100 years after the events of the Vikings series. The series is jam-packed with historical figures, action, and adventure. What more could you ask for in a show like this?

If you like The Last Kingdom, you’re also going to love this series. It actually takes place around the same time period, so you’ll recognize a lot of names and places. Each show is historical fiction and takes some liberties with these characters’ lives, but they go in very different directions and should keep viewers guessing.

Vikings: Valhalla season 3 is happening at Netflix. If luck is in our favor and the wind is in our sails, the third season will be released in 2023. Fingers crossed!
