‘Vikings: Valhalla’ Spin-Off Series Is Coming To Netflix

Vikings Valhalla Netflix

As History’s Vikings concludes its storied six-season run filled with ups and downs – but arguably more downs than ups since the departure of Ragnar Lothbrok (portrayed by Travis Fimmel) – show creator Michael Hirst is already mapping out his next conquest in collaboration with Die Hard screenwriter and showrunner of the upcoming project, Jeb Stuart; and soon enough, you may find yourself binging the spin-off series Vikings: Valhalla on Netflix.

Set over one hundred years after the original series in the early 11th century, Netflix’s run at chronicling the legendary Northmen of old will follow Leif Eriksson, Freydis Eriksdotter, Harald Hardrada, and William the Conqueror. “These men and women will blaze a path as they fight for survival in the ever-changing and evolving world.”

The Kingdom of England “stands tall” against its Scandanavian raiders, and after the death of King Edward the Confessor, three lords lay their claim to the English throne whose actions irrevocably shape the future of England forever. As many will learn, this is the dawn of the Viking Age.



In terms of casting, here’s who you can expect to appear in Vikings: Valhalla so far:

  • Sam Corlett as Leif Eriksson
    “A Greenlander raised on the outer fringes of the known world, Leif comes from a tightly-knit family steeped in the old pagan beliefs. An intrepid sailor and physically tough, Leif is our entry into a Viking world in the throes of violent change.”
  • Frida Gustavsson as Freydis Eriksdotter
    “Fiercely pagan, fiery and headstrong, Freydis is a staunch believer in the “old gods.” Like her brother Leif, she reaches Kattegat as an outsider but becomes an inspiration to those of the old ways.”
  • Leo Suter as Harald Sigurdsson
    “Born into Viking nobility, Harald is one of the last Viking berserkers. Charismatic, ambitious, and handsome, he is able to unite both followers of Odin and Christians.”
  • Bradley Freegard as King Canute
    “The King of Denmark. A wise, savvy, and ruthless Viking leader. Keeps his friends close and enemies closer. His ambitions will mould the course of history in the 11th century and make him a defining figure of the Viking age.”

  • David Oakes as Earl Godwin

  • Pollyanna McIntosh as Queen Ælfgifu
    “Calculating and ambitious, Queen Ælfgifu of Denmark has a hand to play in the political power struggles unfolding in Northern Europe. She uses her charm and guile to great effect as she promotes the interests of her Mercian homeland and tries to assert herself in Canute’s growing power structure.”
  • Asbjørn Krogh Niseen as Jarl Kåre
