Vikings: Valhalla is setting sail on Netflix with an all-new cast. The streamer revealed the stacked list of talent joining their upcoming series, which brings the Vikings saga into a new time period, setting the story in the 11th century, where a fresh adventure is in store.
The Vikings spinoff series is set to star Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson, Leo Suter, Bradley Freegard, Jóhannes Jóhannesson, Laura Berlin, David Oakes and Caroline Henderson, along with Pollyanna McIntosh and Asbjørn Krogh Nissen, and other recurring actors. The new series follows some of the most famous Vikings, from Leif Eriksson and Freydis Eriksdotter, to Harald Hardrada and the Norman King William the Conqueror, as they create their own path and “fight for survival in the ever changing and evolving world.”
The spinoff series comes after the massive success of Vikings, the History show that ended last year after six seasons. In 2019, Netflix ordered Vikings: Valhalla from Vikings creator Michael Hirst, who teamed up with writer and producer Jeb Stuart for the new project. While an official premiere date hasn’t been set, we can expect to see the new series sometime later this year or in 2022.

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.
