It's the end of an era and an empire this week on Netflix. Vikings: Valhalla season 3 makes its debut on Thursday, July 11 and brings the fan-favorite historical drama series to an end. In case you didn't know or perhaps have forgotten since season 2 aired last year, the eight-episode third season will be the final run for Vikings: Valhalla, so it's time to savor every last bit.

As with the vast majority of Netflix new releases, Vikings: Valhalla season 3 will drop in full at midnight on the West Coast of the United States, making the East Coast drop much later at 3 a.m. Unless you take off work the next day in order to pull an all-nighter to watch all eight episodes, it's probably more worthwhile to start season 3 on Thursday or Friday night and finish watching over the weekend.

If you're wondering when the final season of Vikings: Valhalla begins streaming in other time zones around the world, including in the UK, Germany, Australia, and more, we're sharing a helpful guide to Netflix release times. Some lucky viewers will be able to start their binge-watch at a decent hour in the morning, afternoon, or evening on July 11. Check it out below!

The final season takes place seven years after the events of the second season and find Freydis (Frida Gustavsson), Leif (Sam Corlett), and Harald (Leo Suter) in new positions, but the heroes must still undergo some new challenges and tough battles before the series comes to a close. It's definitely going to be hard to say goodbye to these three characters!

Before diving into the last batch of new episodes, here's the official synopsis via Netflix:

"Season Three finds our heroes seven years after the conclusion of Season Two. Freydis is now the undisputed leader of pagan Jomsborg, and Leif and Harald have achieved glory in Constantinople. But greater challenges lie ahead in order for each to reach their ultimate destiny."

The first season premiered on Netflix back in February 2022 and the second season premiered in January 2023. While the second and third seasons filmed close together throughout 2021 and 2022, releasing the final season took a bit longer than expected. There's no doubt that fans were hoping to watch season 3 much sooner in 2024 than the summer, but it's finally here.

Because it's been such a long time since season 2 was released, I would definitely recommend starting back up from the beginning and watching all the way through season 3. After all, each season only contains eight episodes for a grand total of a 24-episode series. To put it into perspective, that's one less episode than the first season of Lost. Settle in for a series-long binge!
