Netflix is making a big commitment to Vikings: Valhalla, ordering not one but two more seasons of the Vikings spinoff series, which was an instant hit on the platform.
Valhalla, which premiered Feb. 25 on the streamer, landed the No. 1 spot on Netflix’s Top Ten list in its first week with 80.5 million hours viewed in its first two days and 194 million viewed Horus in its first nine days.
In a statement to Netflix, Vikings: Valhalla showrunner Jeb Stuart said, “Fans of Valhalla — THANK YOU to the millions of you who have watched (and rewatched!) Season 1. The numbers have been mind-boggling and beyond my wildest expectations. I’m thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing Season Two and that production will start soon on Season Three. While the storylines for Leif, Freydis, Harald, Olaf, Canute and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you’ve seen so far. SKÅL!!!”
Season 2 of Vikings:Valhalla has wrapped film and is expected to air in 2023, and shooting for Season 3 will resume this spring. Stuart will remain as showrunner for Seasons 2 and 3.
Vikings: Valhalla is based on the History series, Vikings, which aired for six seasons from 2013-2020.
