“Deliver us, Lord, from the wrath of the northern men,” prayed the monks of medieval Europe. And televise speaking, this prayer will come back into fashion soon: Netflix has announced the release date of Vikings: Valhalla, the spin-off of Vikings that chronicle the adventures of the navigator Leif Eriksson.
The series, in which Sam Corlett (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Leo Suter (Victoria) and Frida Gustavsson (The Witcher), among others, will participate on VOD on February 25, as announced by the platform.
Set 100 years after the original Vikings , Valhalla promises to maintain its blood levels and carnage on behalf of Thor and Odin. Here are his first photos to prove it.
‘Valhalla’: beyond ‘Vikings’
The new series begins 100 years after the end of the original to tell the adventures of the most famous Vikings of all time: Leif Erikson (navigator who was one of the first Europeans to reach North America), Freydís Eiríksdóttir (daughter of Erik the Red), Harald Harada and King William the Conqueror.
Vikings: Valhalla is commanded by Michael Hirst, creator of the original Vikings . The writing of the scripts corresponds to Jeb Stuart, legendary scriptwriter of action films like Die Hard, 48 Hours More or The Fugitive.
Vikings was an overwhelming and unexpected fiction success for the Historia channel , whose sequel has sparked a checkbook war between its mother house and various streaming platforms. Without a doubt, Netflix has pushed hard to get hold of this new chapter in the Viking saga.
The platform ordered 24 episodes of the new series, a figure higher than the already long seasons of Vikings (and well above the usual on Netflix), which shows the confidence that the streaming giant has in this Valhalla .
