The first trailer for the upcoming series “Vikings: Valhalla” has been unveiled. The first glance is unquestionably spectacular. Before we begin, it’s significant to mention that there has been no official statement on the series’ release date. It will be some time before the show premieres, but in the meantime, we can dwell on other subjects. However, we do know that by 2022, this spin-off should be released.
This series picks up a century after the first and follows the lives of some of history’s most famous Norsemen: Leif Erikson, Freyds Eirksdóttir, Harald Hardrada, and Norman King William the Conqueror, who was a Viking descendant. Let’s get a proper synopsis of the series.
Vikings: Valhalla Synopsis
Let’s first give you guys a brief synopsis. Years after the Vikings, the conclusion of the Viking Age approaches as England battles them. Three lords seize the English crown upon the death of King Edward the Confessor. Greenlanders were led across the North Atlantic by Leif Erikson. He is devoted to his family, but he has a strained relationship with his father, Erik the Red. His half-sister is Freyds Eirksdóttir.
She becomes the leader of the Old Norse faith against increasing Christianity in Scandinavia after being sexually assaulted by Christian Vikings, and she will seek a new home for her people. Torsen, a Christian Viking from a royal family, draws her into a romantic involvement. Torsen is a member of a battalion assembled by King Harald Hardrada in order to redeem the atrocity.
Alienor, his queen, and Earl Colby, an Anglo-Saxon counselor, guide him. According to Vikings creator Michael Hirst, the show is set in a time when “the Vikings have overrun most of England and own Normandy.”
The official synopsis of the series follows, “The all-new VIKINGS: VALHALLA begins in the early 11th century and chronicles the legendary adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – Leif Eriksson, Freydis Eriksdotter, Harald Hardrada and the Norman King William the Conqueror. These men and women will blaze a path as they fight for survival in the ever-changing and evolving world.”
