In some good news, Vikings: Valhalla season 2 is happening. In some bad news, we’re not going to get to see it on Netflix this month.
Considering the success of the original series on History, it really wasn’t that surprising to hear that the spin-off would get more than one season. However, we didn’t initially know how the episodes would be split. All we knew was that Vikings: Valhalla would have 24 episodes, with the first season airing eight of them.
That did mean we’d see Vikings: Valhalla season 2 happen. We will also see a third season. There may be more after that, but for now, we’ll take the three seasons of the period drama. The bad news is we still have to wait to watch the second season. The series is not coming out in July.
When will Vikings: Valhalla season 2 come to Netflix?
The wait for the series isn’t that surprising. We’ve been warned by Netflix that we won’t get to see the season in 2022. It will arrive sometime in 2023, and we’re looking at February 2023 as a release date. This would mark a year from the release of the first season.
This is despite filming of the second season already complete. That was completed ahead of the release of the first season. It’s going to be in post-production throughout this year. It does take some time for a show on this scale to get through post-production. Turning the 21st century into the Viking period is never going to be that easy.
It doesn’t need the year, though. When the first season came out, showrunner Jeb Stuart said he was working on the editing of the season 2 finale. It looks like it’s Netflix trying to space out its content after seeing everything completed around the same time due to pandemic filming delays in 2020.
Stay tuned for the latest updates about Vikings: Valhalla season 2 and more on Netflix.
