Vikings: Valhalla: Release Date, Cast, and a whole lot of it
Vikings: Valhalla, falls in the category of historical drama and is also one from Netflix. As creators, we have Michael Hirst and MGM Productions will be the ones producing the forthcoming spin-off.
Honestly, it has been quite some time that Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons have had their adventure. It’s time for them to strike back on television once again. The series is going to follow the life of popular and also not-so-popular characters from medieval history. Some of the names are Harald Hardrada, Leif Eriksson, William the Conqueror, and Freydis Eriksdotter
Every episode of Vikings was written by Hirst and this time is nominated for producing the show with Stuart. Alan Gasmer, Morgan O’Sullivan, and Sherry Mash are some of the other names as executive producers.
As for the direction, expect Niels Arden Plev, Steve Saint Leger, and Hannah Quinn.
Here is a little glimpse of what the show holds from Hirst himself.
“It couldn’t be on a greater scale than the final episodes of my Vikings. Because the armies and the big battles we had… You really can’t get much bigger than that, actually. But what can I say? It is being made in the same places, a lot of it. We go back to Kattegat. That, of course, is the spiritual home of the Vikings. But it’s a changed Kattegat. It’s an established… It’s one of the biggest ports really, trading ports in Europe. It’s grown in size and significance.The King of England has become a Viking. The Vikings have overrun most of England and they own Normandy.”
With the little sneak peek released, it just got us excited. The release happened during the Netflix Geeked Event which took place on 7th June 2021.
You’ve been waiting patiently and the wait is over!
