Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Release Date
Yes, the show is confirmed! Netflix confirmed that Vikings: Valhalla is returning on January 12th, 2023 with a bang!
When was Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Renewed?
The show has been so successful that not only has it been renewed for a second season, but production for a third season will begin soon.
The reason for this early renewal is the show’s 24-episode order when it was first announced.
Under this new agreement, Netflix has secured the rights to air the original Vikings series. In a couple years, both Netflix UK and US will be able to offer seasons 1-6 to their subscribers.
Netflix’s announcement of the return of Vikings: Valhalla for seasons two and three has been set for March 9th, 2022.
How Well did Vikings: Valhalla Season 1 Perform on Netflix?
The show has been extremely successful, based on Netflix Top 10 data. In just two days after its release, it was watched for a total of 80.56 million hours – making it the second most-watched show that week.
In the 37 days (between February 25th and April 3rd, 2022) since it debuted on Netflix, the show has been watched for a combined 265,550,000 hours globally.
It’s hard to compare new hourly data, but from what we can see, Vikings: Valhalla did better (especially in the first 2-3 weeks) compared to The Last Kingdom’s final season release.
