I have to warn you, people, to lock your daughters in right away as the Vikings are arriving next week, February 25th when VALHALLA epic TV series streams on Netflix with its first season and the second one has already been shot too as the whole series, coming from Tudors and Vikings creator Michael Hirst, has originally been ordered for 24 episodes which is four seasons.

VIKINGS VALHALLA STORY Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, VALHALLA chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Erikson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory. VIKINGS: VALHALLA, set over a hundred years after the end of the original Vikings series, is a new adventure that blends historical authenticity and drama with gritty, immersive action!
The great-grandson of Harald “Finehair,” Harald is a natural and charismatic leader who excels in spycraft. A Christian driven by the viking pursuit of glory, he prefers compromises when possible to avoid bloodshed. He’s taken with Freydis at first sight and the two grow close despite their opposing religious beliefs
Leif’s upbringing in Greenland makes him an outsider to the Danes, and his father’s violent legacy makes him a distrusted outsider. When he travels to Norway seeking vengeance for his sister, he hopes to earn the confidence of the vikings with his seamanship and warcraft and to step out of his father’s shadow for good.
Unlike her brother, Leif, Freydis seems more than willing to embrace the darkness passed down by her father. A trained shieldmaiden, Freydis is one of the most formidable warriors in Norway. Her devotion to traditional beliefs is strengthened with a pilgrimage to Uppsala and a meeting with The Seer, but her faith puts her at odds with Harald.
