Vikings: Valhalla will be set 100 years after the events of the History channel series Vikings, which will kick off its sixth and final season on Dec. 4. "The series will dramatize 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)," per Variety. "These men and women will blaze new paths as they fight for survival in an ever changing and evolving Europe." Vikings creator Michael Hirst is co-creating Vikings: Valhalla with Jeb Stuart, who will serve as showrunner. “I am beyond excited that we are announcing the continuation of our Vikings saga,” Hirst said. “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.” ALSO: Netflix ordered 24 episodes of Vikings: Valhalla, but it's unclear if those are for super-sized episodes or for two seasons.
