Viking is over after 7 seasons and fans want to see more stories. But Netflix has a gift for them, the Vikings Valhalla, the next production to continue Michael Hearst Saga.
The end of the History Channel series Viking was tough for fans. Although one of the main characters, Ragnar Lothbrock (Travis Fimmel) was killed in the fourth season, the series still has many fans.
Vikings set aside Season 7 for new Netflix production; The Vikings are not good
The long-running historical series hit the screens for the first time in 2013 and years. A total of 89 episodes are currently airing. Unfortunately, in January 2019, it was announced that Season 6 would be the last season of the series. With that in mind, there will be no Vikings ’seventh season.
On the other hand, the trailer for the last segment of Viking’s Season 6 indicates that the saga is coming to an end, and that everything is over in the last 10 episodes. However, the Vikings working for Netflix: Valhalla should not discourage fans of the spin-off series. The story of some of the characters, including Rolo (Clive Standon), will be linked to the spin-off.
Viking’s events have been going on for more than 100 years as England began to oppose the Scandinavian invaders. Michael Hirst, the creator of the series, said in a statement during the renewal of the sixth season.
“I know how the Vikings will end, and I believe Ragnar told the story of Lothbrook and his children after 89 episodes. So we leave our beloved fans with an accurate and determined ending, ”Hearst revealed.

What about the Vikings: Valhalla?
The story takes place 100 years after the OG series, and follows the “most famous Viking who ever lived,” especially William the Conqueror, Leaf Eriksson, Harold Hardrada, and Friedis, who “discover innovation by struggling to survive permanently in Europe”.
Netflix is also very careful about that. That’s why the executive producer of the original Netflix program said of the new series, “I hope this will be a bigger production than we saw on Viking. “
It will only stream on Netflix (not the History Channel or the Amazon Prime video). The streaming giant ordered 24 episodes, which were filmed at Ashford Studios in Wicklow, Ireland. Vikings executive producer Morgan O’Sullivan is also with Hearst and Stuart.
Michael Hearst compared his future involvement in the Vikings to George’s Star Wars franchise, revealing some of the reasons the series switched to Netflix, and left the History Channel.
“Netflix offers obvious achievements and has millions of fans following it, so we are very happy to partner with them. This is a long-term commitment and, in a way, I am happy to continue my saga. “
