While also making the Top 10 in 90 countries. Vikings: Valhalla had over 80M hours viewed during its first two days the week prior bringing it to an impressive 194M hours viewed in its first nine days. Needless to say, with viewership like that, it’s no surprise to see Valhalla return for Season 2 and 3. If you haven’t checked out the first season, you can find it now on Netflix.

‘VIKINGS: VALHALLA’ SEASON 1 SYNOPSIS
Season One chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory.
