As Vikings prepares to come to a close on the History channel, the next iteration of the series has landed at Netflix.
Titled Vikings: Valhalla, the follow-up series is set 100 years after the events of the History channel show and focuses on Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and William the Conqueror. Vikings creator Michael Hurst will hand show-running duties over to Jeb Stuart, while acting as executive producer.
Netflix has picked up Vikings: Valhalla for a total of 24 episodes. It is unknown if that will serve as one full season, or be broken up into halves like the History channel has typically done. Season 6 of Vikings premieres Wednesday, Dec. 4 on the History channel.
I’ve been a fan of Vikings since the beginning, although I must admit I am happy to see the series come to a close. The last few seasons haven’t been able to reach the heights of the show’s earlier years. Six seasons is a good amount of time to explore the world of the show, with many characters coming and going. While I am not salivating over a sequel series, I am intrigued.
