VIKINGS: VALHALLA SEASON 2 TRAILER ARRIVES ONLINE
Set over a thousand years ago in the 11th century, the show follows the chronicles of heroic adventurers of the most famous Vikings who ever lived, including the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the Nordic Prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). Season 2 is set after the tragic fall of Kattegat. The event has shattered the dreamers of the heroes and altered their destinies, and now they have to regroup.
Vikings: Valhalla is executive produced by Jeb Stuart, Morgan O’Sullivan, Michael Hirst, Sheila Hockin, Steve Stark, James Flynn, John Weber, Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer, and Paul Buccieri. The show is based on the original series, Vikings, created by Michael Hirst. MGM Studios produced the series. Writers for Season 2 include Vanessa Alexander, Declan Croghan, Jeb Stuart, Eoin McNamee, and Niall Queenan. Stuart is serving as showrunner for the Netflix series.
Per Netflix, Season 2 will consist of eight episodes running about 49 minutes each. The show stars Sam Corlett as Leif Eriksson, Leo Suter as Harald Sigurdsson, Frida Gustavsson Freydis Eriksdotter, Laura Berlin, David Oakes, Johannes Haukur Johannesson, Bradley Freegard, and Hayat Kamille. Season 2 directors include Monika Mitchell, Ciaran Donnelly, Emer Conroy, and Jan Matthys.
Along with the new trailer, Netflix also provided a look at a promotional poster image of Season 2, showcasing the show’s central trio, which you can view below:
Based on the trailer, it looks like fans of the Vikings franchise are in for an action-packed, eventful season, as these legendary historical figures seek to reinvent themselves and build their personal legacies. It’s interesting to think that the original series in the franchise, Vikings, debuted on the History Channel way back in 2013. So, Season 2 of Valhalla will debut on Netflix 10 years after the original debuted its first season.
At the very least, this looks like it will be an intense, violent, and blood-filled season filled with action and suspense. That boat over the waterfall sequence also looks pretty impressive, and it looks like Season 2 will have some impressive production values. The show also looks to have some impressive sets and costumes throughout the footage of the newly released trailer.
Season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla debuts on Netflix on Jan. 12, 2023. The show will stream exclusively on Netflix. All eight episodes of Season 2 will be available on the streaming service at launch.
