Viking fans have been living in a drought ever since the original show ended. However, Vikings Valhalla give the fans something to cheer for. Now, after binging the first season, fans are waiting for Vikings Valhalla Season 2. So, let’s discuss what we know about it.
What Will Happen in Viking Valhalla Season 2?
In the first season of Viking Valhalla, viewers saw Jarl Haakon was seemingly dead. It also revealed that Olaf has deliberately given Harald the wrong news so that the defenders would have to divide their men. On the other hand, Kåre was killed by Freydis and later left with Harald. And Forkbeard managed to take charge of the Danish fleet with some assistance from Emma. He attacked Kattegat. That ended Olaf’s brief rule on the city. Meanwhile, Liv died in the arms of Leif, which activated the killer inside him. The first season concluded on a cliffhanger while Leif drills to attack Canute’s son, Svein.

All this was something that he could have never imagined in his wildest dreams. On the other hand, Canute and his family’s kingdom were put in a dangerous position. This was because of the sudden rise of Edmund.
