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 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 in 2024, as confirmed by the streaming service. We think it’ll be coming within the first half of the year.

That’s 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. That’s an exciting prospect, and a concrete release date should be announced soon.

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 expected Vikings Valhalla season 3 cast:

  • 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.
