According to information released last year, Vikings: Valhalla will consist of one first season of 24 episodes, which will be broadcast on Netflix during this 2021. The creator of Vikings, Michael Hirst, will work as an executive producer alongside the showrunner and lead writer Jeb stuart (screenwriter of Die Hard). Hirst recently said that “the sequel will be a tribute to what has been done over the past seven years, a recognition of the great work done in Vikings. What Jeb Stuart is doing is that he pays a lot of attention to Viking mythology. Whenever these people gathered in the great hall of Kattegat they heard tales of legendary feats of the past such as the great Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha, Bjorn "The Armor", Ivar "Boneless" and all the others. They are different stories that have ready-made links for the new TV series “.
