It looks like the Nordic heroes of Netflix‘s Vikings: Valhalla will embark on one final quest with the upcoming third series coming 2024. The show, created by Jeb Stuart, serves as the sequel to the seminal Vikings by Michael Hirst, which concluded in 2020.
Set 100 years after the original series, Vahalla follows a new generation of Vikings and the tensions that arose between them and the English in the 11th century, inspired both by Norse mythology and actual historical records.
Reflecting on the legacy of the series, as well as teasing fans about what to expect in the upcoming final entry, Stuart told Netflix: “When we started this project five years ago, I worked hard with this incredible cast and crew to craft a journey that we all hoped would be satisfying.”
He continued, stating, “I hope when the audience gets to see the new season, they’ll be excited by all the new heights that we’ve taken these heroes.” Season 3 of Vikings: Valhalla will see Leif Erikson and the gang make a treacherous journey to Constantinople and engage in a bloody final face-off with William the Conquerer.
“When we started this project five years ago, I worked hard with this incredible cast and crew to craft a journey that we all hoped would be satisfying,” Stuart said.
“Of course, with real historical figures, there are always more aspects of their lives that could be explored, but it made sense storywise for our Leif, Freydís, and Harald’s voyages to end with our third season. And we really cannot wait for the fans to see the conclusion of this chapter of history.”
