The authors of the project said that as the main characters in the new series, they chose famous historical figures, but the events shown in the show are a rather free retelling of the surviving chronicles, so taking them as real facts should not. The plot in the new series unfolds 100 years after the events told in the original story and has no direct connection to them. Michael Hurst shared the opinion that in developing a spin-off he did not want to do a direct continuation, rather want to continue to develop the universe, but through the new characters. The release date of the sequel is expected in the winter of 2023.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
In the story, the center of the story is Leif Eriksson and his half-sister Freydis Eriksksdottir. Leif is the son of the notorious Eric the Red, but he has a bad relationship with his father, who was banished from his home country for murder, which leads the boy to the decision to devote himself to travel. Freydis was raped as a child by a Christian Viking, which shaped her outlook on life.
She dedicated herself to fighting Christianity, which began to spread widely among the Viking tribes, banishing the traditional pagan faith. In the first season, viewers could see the participation of heroes in the war with the King of England, but the upcoming episodes according to the authors will be less bloody. The release date for season 2 of Vikings Valhalla will take place in the winter of 2023.
Historical facts say that the discoverer of America was Columbus, but there are versions that the Vikings first set foot on these lands. Writer Jeb Stewart said that in the second season they will explore these rumors and Leif and Freydis will travel and find themselves in America, which was named Vinland by the Vikings. The brother and sister’s adventures on the new continent will be recounted in upcoming episodes, with a release date set for January 2023.
