Netflix has revealed a new trailer for the first season of ‘Vikings: Valhalla.’ The sequel to the History channel series will release on Netflix on February 25, 2022.
The trailer shows a violent confrontation between the Vikings and English soldiers as they assembled to avenge the death of the Vikings. The trailer proceeds further as Leif Eriksson commands his army to war by saying, "This blood is not my blood. It is our blood. It is Viking blood." It ends with a glimpse of a more violent Leif Eriksson.
Vikings: Valhalla is set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century and follows the daring adventures of some of history's most famous Vikings, including the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his feisty and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the aspirational Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody climax, and the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings embark on an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, in their fight for survival and glory.
Netflix revealed a poster for the series, a few weeks back when the first teaser trailer was released:
