Will there be a Vikings spin-off?
There is good news for fans of the historical drama as the Vikings saga is not over.
At the beginning of December 2019, Netflix announced a spin-off series titled Vikings: Valhalla.
Vikings is expected to wrap up in early 2021, so if Netflix is going to wait until the original series concludes, Vikings: Valhalla is not expected to air until the latter half of 2021 or early 2022.
According to Deadline, there will be 24 episodes in the new series, which will come from Vikings creator Michael Hirst and studio MGM Television.
The Vikings spin-off series Vikings: Valhalla will be set 100 years after Vikings season six concludes and will follow Vikings Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and the Norman King William the Conqueror.
The synopsis via Deadline reads: “These men and women will blaze new paths as they fight for survival in an ever-changing and evolving Europe. This is the explosive next chapter of the Vikings legend.”
In a statement, Hirst said: “I am beyond excited that we are announcing the continuation of our Vikings saga.
“I know that the millions of our fans across the globe will be thrilled by the belief being shown in our show by MGM and Netflix.”
Vikings season 6 will return on Wednesday, January 1, 2020, on History US and Thursday, January 2 on Amazon Prime
