The story of Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons may have come to an end late last year, but the saga of Vikings is just beginning. Ahead of the show's final season on Amazon Prime Video, it was announced that a spinoff/sequel to the popular historical series was already in development at Netflix. On Tuesday morning, Netflix released the first official details for the follow-up series, as well as the show's main cast.
The second series in the Vikings franchise is Vikings: Valhalla, and it takes place in the 11th century. Leif Ericksson, one of the most popular vikings in history, will serve as the main character in the series. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Sam Corlett will lead the series in the role of Eriksson.
