Netflix has announced a release date for the highly anticipated Vikings: Valhalla, alongside a set of new pictures that give us a taste of what’s to come from the series.
A spin-off to the hugely popular series Vikings, the Netflix original will fast forward 100 years and showcase events from the 11th century.
The official synopsis for the series reads as follows:
Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, Vikings: Valhalla chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory. VIKINGS: Valhalla, set over a hundred years after the end of the original VIKINGS series, is a new adventure that blends historical authenticity and drama with gritty, immersive action.
Starring alongside Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson and Leo Suter are David Oakes, Johannes Haukur Johannesson, and The Walking Dead’s Pollyanna McIntosh.
The series will arrive on Netflix, February 25th, 2022.
