We were not knowing how long it would take for the filming to last, but it was originally planned from March to October 2020.

In November 2020, the cast and crew started to post updates about the wrapping up of Vikings Valhalla. Later in March 2021, BreakingNews.ie reported that the film has been halted by 2 months. However, the reasons are not known yet.

How many episodes will be there in Season 1 of Vikings Valhalla?

Unlike Lucifer and Designated Survivor, Vikings Valhalla is not a continuation to Vikings instead it is a spin-off. Vikings are currently available on Hulu and Amazon in the US but it is not likely to include Netflix receiving all six seasons of Vikings.
