While we still don’t have a release date, the drought of Vikings content is officially over. The series finale of History’s Vikings streamed at the end of 2020 on Amazon Prime Video. However, the first footage of a prequel series, Netflix’s Vikings: Valhalla, has been revealed during Geeked Week.
The behind-the-scenes footage shows the epic scale of the upcoming series, with massive Viking boats, castles, armies marching to war, battle scenes, and plenty of farm animals to get fans primed. What we don’t get, however, is an in-depth look at the show’s plot.

However, we do know quite a bit about the series thus far. It’s actually set around a couple hundred years before Vikings. While the original series primarily followed Ragnar Lothbrok and his family, Vikings: Valhalla stars Sam Corlett (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) as Leif Eriksson, who is thought to have been the first European to set foot in the Americas.
