What can we expect to happen in Vikings: Valhalla season 2?
Here’s the official synopsis of season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla:
“Season Two finds our heroes shortly after the tragic fall of Kattegat; an event that has shattered their dreams and altered their destinies. Finding themselves suddenly fugitives in Scandinavia they are forced to test their ambitions and courage in worlds beyond the fjords of Kattegat.”
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 is expected to highlight the life of Leif, who has been bestowed with the ocean of sorrow owing to the Greenlander’s journey to the east. As you might know, the greatest shock that came to Leif was Lif’s death, his lover, whose existence prevented him from becoming his monstrous father, Erik the Red. With her death, Leif, like the Achilles of Illiad, donned a pair of axes with no armor and tore through the entire group of Viking warriors. Season 2 will deal with the repercussions of the new version of Leif.
The new season of Vikings: Valhalla will also centre around Harald Sigurdson, also known as Harald Hardarda. With the unwavering support of King Cnut, Harald’s exploits have turned indelible, but his fate as a king still remains in the dark. In conversation with The Wrap, the actor Leo Suter said, “Harald’s been screwed over. Massively screwed over and what’s more, it’s not just him who’s been screwed over but it’s his loved ones who’ve been screwed over. So that relationship is, as you say, very damaged. And it’s going to take a lot for it to heal. But yeah, there’s certainly been some serious wrongs that have befallen him. So let’s see in Season 2 what happens with that.”
With the support of his wife and his father, King Cnut is all set to conquer the throne of Denmark and fulfil his vision of a Great Northern Empire. However, England was not known for its ‘Glorious Revolution’ earlier; it was only later that the historic moment was observed. So, the audience can expect relentless ambition to control the actions of the powerful in season 2 and the havoc it wreaks.
How many episodes will be constituted in Vikings: Valhalla season 2?
Vikings: Valhalla consists of 24 episodes in total which are spread across three seasons. So, the upcoming season is expected to stream eight episodes. In addition to that, George Maniakes, an indelible general of the Byzantine Empire during the 11th century, is also expected to make his appearance during the season. His role will be reprised by Florian Munteanu, who is known as Razor Fist in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
