What can we expect from Vikings: Valhalla next season?

Although it’s hard to guess what will happen in the future of the show “Vikings: Valhalla,” it’s obvious that Leif and Harald will keep exploring and bringing new adventures to the series in Constantinople after the end of Season 2.

In Season 2 of the show, Leif goes through changes and starts to embrace Christianity. He has a curiosity about the world and wants to learn more. Accordingly, Leif plans to visit Mariam’s house in the Byzantine city to learn more and expand his knowledge.

On the other hand, Harald is not thinking rationally. He has developed feelings for Elena, the mysterious woman who joined him on the journey to Constantinople. However, it is revealed that she is meant to marry the Emperor. That means any relationship between them would need to be kept hidden if Harald wants to avoid trouble.

Freydis’ journey, on the other hand, is uncertain. She has made peace with Kattegat, Canute, and Forkbeard, putting the previous conflicts behind her. Now, her main focus is taking care of her newborn son. However, there is always the possibility of new threats emerging. As the last defender of the pagan traditions, it could be up to her to lead a fightback against any new enemies if the Vikings are put in danger.

Finally, in London, Queen Emma has gained control over Godwin. The Earl of Wessex achieved his desire by arranging a marriage with Gytha, Canute’s niece. However, during this process, Emma discovered secrets from Godwin’s past. With this valuable information, which she could easily share with Canute, Emma has the power to make Godwin do whatever she wants if the political situation in England becomes uncertain.

What the creators have hinted about the next season

While Netflix has only ordered three seasons of Vikings: Valhalla. However, the creator Jeb Stuart previously told us he has designs on reaching the end of the Viking era in 1066.

“Most historians think that the end of the Vikings era is 1066. I’d love to do that. For me, that’ll take more than three seasons. It would be [the endgame]. There’s a lot of great history out there, an enormous amount of growth on all these characters.”

History can provide insights into what may unfold in season 3. Without revealing any real-world spoilers, it is hinted that Harald will be spending a significant amount of time in Constantinople, away from his beloved Norway. In an interview with Collider, creator Jeb Stuart mentioned that a “change of culture” will play a crucial role in the series as it moves forward.

Stuart, the creator of the show, gave some hints about Season 3. He mentioned that there will be a big change in the culture and the story will eventually lead to the exploration of the New World. He raised questions about what tools and skills Leif will acquire, and how Freydis will help the last remaining followers of the Pagan faith. It’s an exciting prospect because it also reflects what was happening in Europe at that time.

In the same interview, Stuart also mentioned the possibility of incorporating time jumps into the series. If the show, follows Stuart’s desire to reach 1066, we might see significant leaps forward in time in the upcoming seasons. Maybe skipping over years or even decades. This narrative approach could allow for more compact storytelling of the Viking era.

The main cast will likely include Queen Emma, played by Laura Berlin, Godwin portrayed by David Oakes, King Canute portrayed by Bradley Freegard, Queen Aelfgifu portrayed by Pollyanna McIntosh, and Elena portrayed by Sofya Lebedeva.
