The History channel’s show “Vikings” has been a hugely popular series since it launched in 2013. The drama series is based on 13th century writings based on Norse tradition and its 6th and final season will premier in December 2019. It has now been announced that a sequel series, “Vikings Valhalla”, is in development for Netflix with “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst executive producing. The new series is set 100 years after the original series and will tell the stories of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and the Norman King William the Conqueror (also a Viking descendant).
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.
