The ship hasn’t sailed yet on Vikings: Valhalla.
Netflix has officially renewed the historical drama for Seasons 2 and 3, TVLine has learned. In fact, production on Season 2 has already wrapped, with a premiere date slated for next year. Season 3 will start filming this spring.
The streamer initially ordered 24 episodes of the Vikings spinoff, which is set a hundred years after the History series and stars Sam Corlett as legendary explorer Leif Erikson. And since Season 1 only had eight episodes, the two-season renewal was really more of a formality. But it speaks to the popularity of Season 1, which Netflix says has racked up a total of 194 million hours viewed since its February 25 debut. (Season 1 earned an average TVLine reader grade of “A”; read our finale recap here.)
Series creator Jeb Stuart (Die Hard, The Fugitive) will return as showrunner for Seasons 2 and 3. “I’m thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing Season 2 and that production will start soon on Season 3,” he said in a statement. “While the storylines for Leif, Freydis, Harald, Olaf, Canute and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you’ve seen so far. SKÅL!!!”
