Netflix will be the exclusive home of Vikings: Valhalla, a new original series from creator Michael Hirst that continues the storytelling of the popular Vikings saga.
The new saga begins 100 years after the original series concludes and dramatises the adventures of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and the Norman King William the Conqueror – also a Viking descendant.
Hirst commented: “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. Jeb Stuart, a truly wonderful writer, will bring new story-lines and a powerful visceral vision to stories about some of the most famous Vikings known to history.”
Channing Dungey, Vice President, Original Series, Netflix., added: “Vikings: Valhalla promises to be everything that fans love about the franchise: heart-pounding, unstoppable action rooted in rich characters and dramatic storytelling that shines the light on family, loyalty and power. We are thrilled to bring the next iteration of the Vikings saga to life with Michael Hirst, Jeb Stuart, Morgan O’Sullivan and MGM Television.”
The original Vikings series is exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK. The sixth and final launches on December 4th.
