Netflix has confirmed Vikings: Valhalla will be coming and it’s a spin-off from the hugely popular Amazon Prime series Vikings.
While any number of shows are cancelled by one station, then move to another, in this instance Vikings: Valhalla is a spin-off with some (to be confirmed) connections. The new saga begins 100 years after the original series concludes and dramatizes the adventures of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and the Norman King William the Conqueror (also a Viking descendant). These men and women will blaze new paths as they fight for survival in an ever changing and evolving Europe. This is the explosive next chapter of the Vikings legend. The producers are: Michael Hirst (Vikings, The Tudors), Jeb Stuart (The Fugitive, Die Hard, The Liberator) and Morgan O’Sullivan (Vikings, Penny Dreadful).
Micheal Hirst said:
“I am beyond excited that we are announcing the continuation of our Vikings saga. I know that the millions of our fans across the globe will be thrilled by the belief being shown in our show by MGM and Netflix. Jeb Stuart, a truly wonderful writer, will bring new story-lines and a powerful visceral vision to stories about some of the most famous Vikings known to history.”
We will keep you posted on casting details, plot reveals and trailers when they arrive. Until then, seasons 6 of Vikings is part way through, and you can catch the whole series on Amazon Prime here.
