Ragnarok season 3 cast, plot, trailer, release date, and reviews

Ragnarok season 3's release date saw the end of the Norse mythology series about a modern day Thor, so here's your breakdown on its cast, episodes, and more.

David Stakston as Magne Seier in Ragnarok

Who’s in Ragnarok season 3 cast? Among the treasure trove of great Netflix entertainment was Ragnarok, a TV show based on Norse mythology that finished its run in 2023 with a final season.

Ragnarok first premiered in 2020 and was a modern-day reimagining of Norse mythology, set in the fictional Norwegian town of Edda, a town suffering at the hands of climate change and industrial pollution. The teenage protagonist, Magne (David Stakston), challenges those responsible for the crisis facing the town, and his mission is helped by the fact that he is the reincarnation of Thor (no, it’s not linked to the MCU).

Netflix confirmed a new season of one of the best TV series for mythology nerds was given the green light but also shared the sad news that this would be the third and final season of one of the best Netflix series, according to its fans. Well, don’t be too down. We’ve got all the details you need relating to the Ragnarok season 3 cast, plot, reviews, and more.

Who’s in the Ragnarok season 3 cast?

The Ragnarok season 3 cast was led by David Stakston and Jonas Strand Gravli as brothers Magne and Laurits.

The new allies Magne found in season 2 also returned for more action, with the gods Iman (Danu Sunth), Wotan (Bjørn Sundquist), and Harry (Benjamin Helstad) all joining the big fight. And by Saxa (Theresa Frostad Eggesbø), who sided with Magne in the season 2 finale.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be Ragnarok without the villainous Jutul family. The apocalyptic giants were without their leader, Vidar (Gísli Örn Garðarsson), who met an untimely end in season 2. But, Fjor (Herman Tømmeraas) and Ran (Synnøve Macody Lund) have enough evil in their bones to make up for that.

Here’s the Ragnarok season 3 cast list:

  • David Stakston as Magne
  • Jonas Strand Gravli as Laurits
  • Danu Sunth as Iman
  • Bjørn Sundquist as Wotan
  • Benjamin Helstad as Harry
  • Theresa Frostad Eggesbø as Saxa
  • Herman Tømmeraas as Fjor
  • Synnøve Macody Lund as Ran
  • Henriette Steenstrup as Turid
  • Odd-Magnus Williamsson as Erik
  • Vebjørn Enger as Jens
  • Billie Barker as Signy

Ragnarok season 3 release date and reviews

Ragnarok season 3 hit Netflix on Thursday, August 24, 2023, and was released to negative reviews from fans and critics alike.

Critics and viewers said that it’s not the strongest season of the series, which is a little disappointing, to say the least. The Review Geek‘s Greg Wheeler wrote that it was an “apocalyptically bad ending,” noting that “the final two episodes are some of the most anticlimactic drama seen in a fantasy series in quite some time. And it’s so frustrating too because this show has so much potential.”

The season also has a rotten 18% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

What’s Ragnarok season 3 about?

The Ragnarok season 3 plot saw Magne beginning to lose himself to Mjolnir’s power. This storyline eventually culminated in a pivotal fight to determine Edda’s fate, as well as the rest of the world.

The lines between good and evil blurred in season 2 of Ragnarok, with Laurits dabbling in the dark side (which makes sense, given he is the modern version of Loki, god of mischief). Similarly, Saxa seemingly pledged her allegiance to Magne instead of the Jutul, after a change of heart in the season 2 finale.

In season 3, Magne struggles to discern friend from foe, and the eventuality of Ragnarok is teased throughout the six episodes. We won’t spoil the ending for you.
