Vikings: Valhalla starts at the beginning of the eleventh century and follows the fabled exploits of some of the most renowned Vikings of all time. The show includes Leif Eriksson, Freydis Eriksdotter, Harald Hardrada, and Norman King William the Conqueror. As these characters struggle for survival in an ever-changing and rapidly alternating environment, these men and women will forge a trail of their own for their future.
Vikings: Valhalla carries the bloodshed and magnificence of the Viking Age with it. The new show, a sequel of the iconic History Channel show Vikings, makes a comeback on Netflix. It is set 100 years after the initial series’ end. As the new Christian worshippers and those who still embrace the Norse gods begin to conflict, the Vikings draw swords with the English as well as with one another.
In Vikings: Valhalla. you will not see the perfect characters you are used to seeing. Unlike the original TV show, this one is not focused on ideal characters. Rather, Valhalla seems to be most concerned about how Vikings remained the same even though their dominance and oppressive power changed in many ways.
There is still dangerous religious conflict in Vikings: Valhalla, and as everybody knows, England becomes the major place to invade. The main vibe you got from Vikings will not appear to be changed significantly, but here is a warning: Vikings: Valhalla is nothing like the original Vikings.
Vikings: Valhalla Trailer
All we can say about the Vikings: Valhalla trailer is that it is full of gore, glory, and history. It looks like the director will not be cutting anything down on the blood again, continuing the tradition of the original series.
The Vikings: Valhalla trailer offers viewers a first peek at the brutal fight sequences. “You have been summoned here to avenge the death of Vikings,” King Canute shouts to the crowd of Vikings who are there to actually avenge their ancestors. He then demands, “Bring me England!”. This scene was more than enough for the viewers to get goosebumps.

Harald Sigurdsson tells his men: “This blood is not my blood. It is our blood. It is Viking blood.” It is another quote from the trailer that is enough to get everybody hyped up considering he was the former King of Norway.
Vikings: Valhalla Release Date
Showrunner Jeb Stuart makes a comment on his work: “My objective would be for you to look back at the conclusion of both shows and think, ‘Wow, that was really wonderful when they were just murdering those Saxons, I miss the purity of that moment,” and it looks like he is really proud of all the gore and blood that comes with the show.
On February 25, Netflix will release all of the dramatic action scenes, brutal fights, fur-lined costumes, and elegant sailboats.
