Because of their depiction of history from the 12th and 13th centuries, Vikings is one of the most popular series. The plot is based on the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, a fearsome scourge, and well-known Norse hero.

In the series, Ragnar is portrayed as a farmer whose reputation as a result of incursions into England eventually propels him to the position of Scandinavian King. The plot then follows the fortunes of his sons as they travel through Scandinavia, England, and the Mediterranean.

Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Release Date

So, we have some good news and some bad news about Vikings: Valhalla season two’s release date.

The good news is that it is absolutely, positively happening. In fact, it has already been filmed, and the creative team is eager to get it out as soon as possible.

The bad news is that by September 21, 2022, there is still no word on when that might be. All we know is that it will happen in 2023. We’re guessing around the same time as season one, which was in February.

Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Cast

Season two will see the return of many of the remaining cast members, including Sam Corlett (Leif), Frida Gustavsson (Freyds Eirksdóttir), and Leo Suter (Harald Sigurdsson).

Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, who plays power-hungry Olaf, is also expected to return.

Soren Pilmark (King Sweyn Forkbeard) and Bradley Freegard (King Canute) are also expected to return, as they both have grudges to settle.

Then, as they travel the world, we can expect to see some new additions to the cast.

Despite the fact that Jarl Haakon died in the first season, actress Caroline Henderson has told fans not to rule out a return.

“She might appear as a ghost or something,” she speculated to Metro.co.uk. “She’s a pagan and she’s very strong in her belief.

“I think it was amazing to portray that and be a part of that journey because she knows what’s going to happen.”

Shang-Chi actor Florian Munteanu will appear as a recurring role in season two, playing Byzantine Empire general George Maniakes, according to Deadline in May 2022.

Maniakes was a real person who, according to legend, was “built like a giant”. The Greek leader helped recapture Sicily in 1038 with the assistance of Harald… that name sound familiar?

Four years later, he revolted against Emperor Constantine after being provoked into action by Romanus Sclerus; while this part of his story is unlikely to be seen, it appears that the Italy and Sicily parts of his history will be featured in Vikings: Valhalla.

Pollyanna McIntosh from The Walking Dead will also appear as Queen lfgifu, a character based on Norway’s real-life regent from 1030 to 1035.

She revealed that she was doing ADR (Additional Dialogue Recording) at the end of August 2022 as the show continued its post-production phase.
Along with it, the actress wrote: “Seeing how the incredible artists and organizers (and often both) combine their skills and passion as a team to make this show what it is.

“And what could Queen lfgifu be so moved/shocked about here…?” “Find out when Season 2 airs, and catch up on Season 1 if you haven’t already. On Netflix. Plug over. Love of the work remains strong.”

Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Plot

Naturally, as we’re talking Vikings history, there’s an awful lot to unpack in season two.

In the final episode, Kattegat was in ruins and on fire, with Freyds and Harald watching the kingdom burn to ashes.

Leo Suter, who plays Harald, teased Digital Spy about his character’s relationship with Freyds and their potential romance.

He told us: “These are two people who are… they have a lot to talk about and they work so well together. But at the same time, there are big forces and big passions that are pulling them apart, and as with any sort of love story, there’s… it’s so simple in some respects, but also so complicated in other ways.”

However, Leif was seen as ready to seek vengeance for what had occurred, especially after the untimely death of his close warrior pal Liv.

In an interview with Newsweek, Jeb Stuart hinted that the Vikings will travel around the world and encounter cultures they have never encountered before.

“They were great traders. So they went to Constantinople, they went to Egypt, they went through the Middle East,” he said. “Viking DNA can be found almost everywhere in that part of Europe, including the Iberian Peninsula and, of course, England and Ireland.”

“As you can probably guess, my Vikings are going to get on their boats and go exploring.”

Since the announcement of George Maniakes’ inclusion, it is safe to assume that at least part of the next season will take place in Sicily.
