Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date speculation, cast, and news

As one of the best Netflix series, we can't wait for the Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date. Here's our full guide to the plot, cast list, and way more.

Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date: Sam Corlett as Leif Erikson

What is the Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date? Netflix offered audiences a continuation of the original Vikings show with its sprawling epic Vikings Valhalla, and we’re looking ahead to what’s next for our favorite warriors.

Two seasons of Vikings Valhalla have already been and gone, and it’s already become one of the best TV series available on Netflix. You’ve probably binged the whole thing by now, and after that great Vikings Valhalla season 2 ending, who could blame you?

Everyone still wants more though, so let’s dive into the history books and see what we can find out about the Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date, who will be a part of one of the best Netflix series next time around, and what might happen to the characters.

Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date speculation

Vikings Valhalla season 3 will return to Netflix sometime in 2024, as confirmed by the streaming service.

However, despite no release date being confirmed, we are pretty positive that the series will be released early in 2024. This is because
the first season of Vikings Valhalla dropped on the streaming service in January 2022, and the second season arrived in January 2023. Judging by that pattern, we can assume the next installment will follow suit.

On October 6, 2023, Netflix also posted a ton of first-look photos of season 3 on its TUDUM page. This means that production must be close to finish. So, the early 2024 release date is looking to be more and more plausible by the minute. Stay tuned for more updates!

Vikings Valhalla season 3 release date: Leo Suter as Harald Sigurdsson in Vikings Valhalla

Who will be in the Vikings Valhalla season 3 cast?

The lead trio of Leo Suter, Sam Corlett, and Frida Gustavsson will return as Harald, Leif, and Freydis in the Vikings Valhalla season 3 cast.

Beyond that, we saw a few characters fall by the wayside last season. Don’t expect to see Olaf in season 3, as he was killed by Freydis in the last episode of the thriller series. Jorundur, too, will not be making it to season 3, as he was slain defending Jomsborg. And finally, after a long-term illness, Mariam bowed out of the show.

What we do know is that we’ll be getting a new character in the form of the legendary Viking Erik the Red, who is also the father of Leif and Freydis. The new addition will be played by Goran Visnjic of The Boys cast, and given the superhero series’ penchant for violence, we think he’ll fit right in.

Here’s the Vikings Valhalla season 3 cast list:

  • Sam Corlett as Leif Eriksson
  • Leo Suter as Harald Sigurdsson
  • Frida Gustavsson as Freydis Eiriksdottir
  • Bradley Freegard as King Canute
  • Laura Berlin as Queen Emma of Normandy
  • David Oakes as Earl Godwin
  • Bradley James as Lord Harekr
  • Marcin Dorociński as Grand Prince Yaroslav the Wise
  • Sofya Lebedeva as Elena
  • Nikolai Kinski as Emperor Romanos
  • Florian Munteanu as George Maniakes
  • Tolga Safer as Kurya
  • Joakim Nätterqvist as Birkir
  • Goran Visnjic as Erik the Red

Vikings Valhalla: Freydis and Harald

What will Vikings Valhalla season 3 be about?

According to Netflix, season 3 will see Harald, Leif, and Freydís embark on new voyages through foreign territory.

We can look at the events of season 2 of the historical drama series for more clues as to what might come next, with Constantinople set to remain a major setting in the show’s future. Whether Harald and Leif remain there or venture back home will be a key factor in season 3.

Speaking of Harald, he has a love interest in Constantinople to pursue in the form of Elena, but doing so could have huge implications for those around him. (And given that she’s engaged to the Emperor, we’re guessing it’s not going to be smooth sailing.) The balancing act of this dynamic will be addressed in season 3, for sure.

Aside from Constantinople, we saw Freydis arrange a truce between Kattegat and the Norwegian forces, but we don’t think that truce will last very long unfortunately. Let’s sit back and enjoy the carnage that will surely unfold when the peace is broken in season 3.

Will Vikings Valhalla season 3 end the series?

Yes. Sorry, fans, but Vikings Valhalla season 3 will be the last season for the historical show.

Co-creator and executive producer Jeb Stuart confirmed the sad news via Variety after issuing a statement on season 3 being the final chapter. “I am so grateful to have had three seasons to tell the stories of Leif, Harald, and Freydis. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to show the evolution of how three of the most famous Vikings became the icons we know today, and we have done just that,” he said.

“I hope when the audience gets to see the new season, they’ll be excited by all the new heights that we’ve taken these heroes. When we started this project five years ago, I worked hard with this incredible cast and crew to craft a journey that we all hoped would be satisfying.”

The statement does clarify that while the ending of season 3 did mean some historical events couldn’t be explored in full, Stuart still cares about the script. The statement assures us that the story wasn’t rushed and that our heroes still have satisfying ends. So, I guess we can all rest easy.

Yes, season 3 will be the curtain call for one of your favorite shows, but it sounds like it will go out with a bang.

Is there a trailer for Vikings Valhalla season 3?

While there isn’t a full trailer for season 3 yet, there is a teaser trailer from Netflix that shows some behind-the-scenes footage.

We also know that a trailer will be coming soon. Netflix has released first-look images, and with the 2024 release window fast approaching, we know that footage must be close to done. Promotion for series tends to begin a few months before release, so we are guessing that the first trailer will drop in early 2024.

While we wait for more official news, you can watch the clip below:
