For Vikings fans the journey isn’t over quite just yet.
Netflix has announced that series creator Michael Hirst is developing Vikings: Valhalla for the streaming service.
The new series will “begin 100 years after the original series concludes and dramatizes the adventures of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and the Norman King William the Conqueror (also a Viking descendant). These men and women will blaze new paths as they fight for survival in an ever changing and evolving Europe. This is the explosive next chapter of the Vikings legend.”
“I am beyond excited that we are announcing the continuation of our Vikings saga. I know that the millions of our fans across the globe will be thrilled by the belief being shown in our show by MGM and Netflix. Jeb Stuart, a truly wonderful writer, will bring new story-lines and a powerful visceral vision to stories about some of the most famous Vikings known to history,” said Hirst in a statement.
The original Vikings series is set to end with its sixth season scheduled to air next month on the History Channel.
