When can we expect Vikings: Valhalla season 3 to arrive on Netflix?
At the time of writing, Netflix has not released any official release date for Vikings: Valhalla season 3. But we do know based upon the recently released February line-up of Netflix’s new shows and movies that the historical fiction will not be released in February 2023. However, if we take into consideration, the previous release schedules, we might be able to speculate on the release date of the upcoming season.
Vikings: Valhalla season one arrived on Netflix in February 2022, followed by the second season, 11 months later, on January 12, 2023. With season 3 renewed even before season 2 dropped on Netflix and filming wrapped by the cast and crew, we can expect the upcoming season to hit the streaming platform in December 2023, or early 2024.
In an interview with E! Online, Frida Gustavsson, who is reprising the role of Freydis, has confirmed our speculations, saying:
“We’ve already shot [season 3] and it’s incredible,” she said. “It’s so good. And I just can’t wait for the world to see it. But you’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer!”

What to expect from Vikings: Valhalla season 3?
The upcoming season is expected to pick up the ends which have been let loose in its predecessor, as it chronicles the adventures of some of the bravest Vikings who have ever graced the land of Earth, including Leif Eriksson (Corlett), Freydis Eriksdotter (Gustavsson), Harald Hardrada (Leo Suter) and the Norman King William the Conqueror.
The plot of the third season will primarily provide more insight into the lives of these Vikings from the second season’s final episode, “The Reckoning” which marked Leif’s heart-wrenching farewell. With the imminent battle coming to its fruition, the conflict to conquer Norway has only begun.
Jeb Stuart, the show’s creator, showrunner, and executive producer, expressed his gratitude to the fans of the show, saying:
“Thank you to the millions of you who have watched (and rewatched!) Season 1. The numbers have been mind-boggling and beyond my wildest expectations. I’m thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing Season 2, and that production will start soon on Season 3. While the storylines for Leif, Freydís, Harald, Olaf, Canute, and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you’ve seen so far.”
Who are the cast members of Vikings: Valhalla season 3?
With the previous season comprising innumerable deaths and dismemberment, it wouldn’t be too much of a shocker if a majority of the cast is not returning in season 3. However, according to Netflix Life, Sam Corlett (Leif Eriksson), Frida Gustavsson (Freydis), and Leo Suter (Harald) are all expected to return in season three.”
