The trailer for the highly-anticipated Season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla starring Leo Suter as Harald Hardrada has been released.
The show takes place in 1066, where we follow Leif Erikson, Freydís Eiríksdóttir, and Harald Hardrada on their journeys across oceans and through battlefields, fighting for their survival or pursuing their glory. The preview season ended with bloodbath, betrayals, and machinations, having a Kattegat in ruins, and not being able to serve as a safe and stable environment for the show and its protagonists. With their dreams and expectations shuttered, they must be refugees beyond Scandinavia and Northern Europe.
The show’s creator, Jeb Stuart, shared that “The whole concept of Season 2 is that we take these three heroes who are in Scandinavia and blow them out of their comfort zones. Season 2 for Harald and Leif is a road trip: It’s Thelma and Louise on the Dnieper River. The two of them will begin this incredible journey. Freydís has to go to Pomerania, which is a very difficult environment. Season 2 will show that sometimes when you hang out with people that are just like you, eat like you, and talk like you, you can still run into trouble. So you need to stir the pot, which I think is what the Vikings did. And they did it beautifully, better than probably any other culture out there. So we put together this motley crew of nobles, Muslim astronomers, and con men, and they shove off from Novgorod.”
Season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla is set to premiere on Netflix on 12th January 2023.
