Valhalla Season 2 First Look Trailer
Netflix confirmed that Vikings: Valhalla was returning for a second season and the third season within a month of the first eight episodes’ release. The streamer’s No. 1 series is a spin-off of the historical drama Vikings, which aired on the History Channel in 2013, and is set 100 years after the exploits of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel). As tensions rise between the English Royals and Vikings over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, the 24-episode Netflix limited series will chronicle the end of the Viking Age, marked by the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066. With the second season scheduled for its 2023 release, Netflix finally gave fans a first look trailer of Vikings: Valhalla during TUDUM, a global fan event.
“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),” reads the official description from Netflix. “Season Two finds our heroes shortly after the tragic fall of Kattegat, an event that has shattered their dreams and altered their destinies—finding themselves suddenly fugitives in Scandinavia they are forced to test their ambitions and courage in worlds beyond the fjords of Kattegat.” You can watch the first look trailer below:
