Vikings: Valhalla to end with season 3 on Netflix

Vikings: Valhalla will end with season 3 on Netflix, concluding the saga of the most famous Vikings who ever lived.

The saga of Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and Harald (Leo Suter) is coming to an end. As first reported by IGN, Vikings: Valhalla will conclude next year with season 3.

I am so grateful to have had three seasons to tell the stories of Leif, Harald and Freydis,” said series creator Jeb Stuart. “I knew from the beginning that I wanted to show the evolution of how three of the most famous Vikings became the icons we know today and we have done just that.”

Stuart continued, “I hope when the audience gets to see the new season, they’ll be excited by all the new heights that we’ve taken these heroes. When we started this project 5 years ago, I worked hard with this incredible cast and crew to craft a journey that we all hoped would be satisfying. Of course with real historical figures, there are always more aspects of their lives that could be explored, but it made sense story-wise for our Leif, Freydis and Harald’s voyages to end with our third season. And we really cannot wait for the fans to see the conclusion of this chapter of history.

Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, Vikings: Valhalla chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). The series’ second season picks up with our heroes shortly after the tragic fall of Kattegat; an event that has shattered their dreams and altered their destinies. Finding themselves suddenly fugitives in Scandinavia, they are forced to test their ambitions and courage in worlds beyond the fjords of Kattegat.

Our own Alex Maidy reviewed the series upon its release and was a big fan. “If you were a fan of Vikings, then you will absolutely love Valhalla. It works as a standalone series as well as a companion to the original series and offers a bloody and interesting look at an era of history that is often glossed over,” Maidy wrote. “With solid production values, great cinematography, and a lot of well-written characters, Vikings: Valhalla is a good watch for fans of epic battles as much as they are of palace intrigue and political thrills. It is worth noting that you will likely need a pad and pencil to keep track of who is who but if you are willing to invest in this you will enjoy the ride.” Check out the rest of Maidy’s review right here.

Vikings: Valhalla season 3 will launch on Netflix in 2024.
