Vikings: Valhalla will continue Michael Hirst’s epic Nordic saga that began back in 2013. Lasting for six seasons, Vikings chronicles the life of legendary farmer-turned-warrior Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons. However, the upcoming spin-off will take place some 100 years later, telling the story of a whole new generation of Nordic. To do justice to the characters and their stories, host Jeb Stuart laid out a “multi-season” plan.
Unlike the first seasons of Vikings, which largely focuses on Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), the spin-off begins by introducing us to the three main characters: Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and Harald Hardrada (Leo Suter). Other characters include
Just like in the original series, there are plenty of battles and power struggles – just check out the most recent trailer:
Stuart is particularly excited about Normandy’s Freydis and Emma. “I went after Freydis, who I thought was a spectacular female character,” he said Polygon. “And one of the things I love about the era, especially from a writing standpoint, is women [in Danish culture] can own property and they can rule kingdoms… [Emma of Normandy was] only part of her father’s estate. And then she became one of the richest women in Europe at the age of 20. How did she do that?”
Netflix is active on Vikings: Valhalla season 3
Netflix included 24 episodes of the show, thanks to Stuart’s plea. “When I introduced it, I tried to present it as a multi-season thing, because that way I could develop those characters in the plot for a longer, longer period of time,” I said Weekly entertainment. “It’s not like, ‘What can we do with Vikings This year?'”
We have some great characters and we have stories in different countries and things like that. I think you almost need to be able to see the horizon.
Since season 1 is confirmed to consist of eight episodes, there are enough episodes commissioned to get us through to season 3, which is already in the works. “We are already preparing for season 3,” Stuart said. “There’s a lot of stuff underneath the dam that’s very interesting and big.”
Looks like there’s potential here for Valhalla run for as long as the original series did. As always, we’ll have to wait and see how fans react.
Original Vikings showrunner wants the side story to have a “nostalgic” feel
Original Vikings The program is managed by Michael Hirst. While he is not the boss of Valhalla, he is an executive producer. Stuart said that Hirst told him to make the Netflix show feel “nostalgic”.
I [knew] he means immediately. The point of the show is that, as we move from season to season, there are parts we’re going to have to give up. So my goal in the end would be that you suddenly look back at this incredible time of both shows and say, ‘Wow, that’s great they just killed those Saxons. I remember the purity of that moment. ‘
I can imagine the side story will make fans Vikings quite nostalgic. I think people will shed tears if/when they mention Ragnar Lothbrok.
Vikings: Valhalla premieres February 25 on Netflix.
