Vikings: Valhalla: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

As far as epics involving swords and violence on TV go, "Game of Thrones" will likely always be the first show that comes up. But "Vikings" is probably a close second and, given the way that "GoT" ended, some might argue that History's series might ultimately have a leg up. And it just so happens that George R.R. Martin's universe isn't the only one entering spin-off land now that its flagship show has wrapped up its run. Netflix is indeed going to continue the "Vikings" universe with a brand new show titled "Vikings: Valhalla," making its way to the streaming world in 2022. We're here to give you all of the necessary information so fans can be ready and know what to expect when the time comes.

Here is everything you need to know about "Vikings: Valhalla."

Vikings: Valhalla Release Date and Where You Can Watch It

"Vikings: Valhalla" is set to arrive on Netflix on February 25, 2022. As is almost always the case with shows on this particular streaming service, the full season will be released at once for your binging pleasure. That is worth mentioning these days as more and more streaming services are moving towards a weekly release model.

What Is Vikings: Valhalla?

This serves as a spin-off to History's successful series "Vikings." This time, however, Netflix has stepped up to keep the show's universe going with an entirely new story. It picks up 100 years after the events of the original show (so don't expect to see any returning characters) and chronicles some of history's most notorious vikings.

Vikings: Valhalla Showrunners, Crew, and More

Jeb Stuart, who co-created "Vikings," returns as showrunner and executive producer of the spin-off. His co-creator Michael Hirst is also set as an executive producer. Niels Arden Plev, Hannah Quinn, and Steve Saint Leger are set as directors of the series. Leger, it's worth noting, directed episodes of the original series, so he may be able to provide some connective tissue. Morgan O'Sullivan, Michael Hirst, Sheila Hockin, Steve Stark, James Flynn, John Weber, Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer, and Paul Buccieri are also on board as executive producers. Vanessa Alexander, Declan Croghan, and Eoin McNamee are writing the series along with Stuart.

Vikings: Valhalla Cast

The cast is led by Sam Corlett as Leif Eriksson, Frida Gustavsson as Freydis Eriksdotter, Leo Suter as Harald Sigurdsson, and Bradley Freegard as King Canute.
