The production created by Jeb Stuart will be set a century after the Vikings events, which came to an end in 2020 after six seasons. The spin-off will star Sam Corlett as Leif Eriksson, Frida Gustavsson as Freydis Eriksdotter, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson as Olaf Haraldsson and David Oakes as Earl Godwin, among others.
“We decided that Valhalla could not continue with the story of my series because I had dealt, in one way or another, with almost all my main characters and did not want to invent new ones,” explained Michael Hirst, creator of Vikings, to ET.
“I want to make sure that it will continue to have the same qualities, but it will also have others to distinguish both series: that it is full of poetry and spirituality and also that you love the characters,” he wielded.
