Following the enormous success of the first season, Jeb Stuart published a statement (via Netflix) that said: “Thank you to the millions of you who have watched (and rewatched!) season one. The numbers have been mind-boggling and beyond my wildest expectations. I’m thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing season two, and that production will start soon on season three.”
He continued: “While the storylines for Leif, Freydís, Harald, Olaf, Canute and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you’ve seen so far.”

What To Expect In Season 2 Of Vikings: Valhalla
Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger and it’s likely that the story will continue in the next season.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Star Leo Suter talked about his character Harald and a potential romance with Freydis in the upcoming season. He said: “These are two people who are… they have a lot to talk about and they work so well together. But at the same time, there are big forces and big passions that are pulling them apart, and as with any sort of love story, there’s… it’s so simple in some respects, but also so complicated in other ways.”
Fans can also see more about Leif who vows to seek revenge for who lost his close warrior companion Liv.
In an interview with Newsweek, Stuart teased that the vikings will explore into the wider world in season 2.
“They were great traders. So they went to Constantinople, they went to Egypt, they went through the Middle East,” Stuart said. “Viking DNA is found almost all over that part of Europe. They went to the Iberian Peninsula and obviously England and Ireland.”
