If you came out in January 2019, you have left since it was revealed in the upcoming sixth season of the historical drama series Vikings. A new Vikings spin-off series has been announced, and soon Vikings: Vallah will stream on Netflix.
The main Vikings series closed in 2013 and quickly established itself as one of the most successful series ever, while also setting a new brand for the network as its first scripted novel series. However, billed as a historical drama, the Vikings have largely invented a narrative that incorporates real and mythological figures from Norse culture into actual historical events, allowing them to interact in ways that historians are unlikely.
Earlier in the season, the series featured Ragnar Lothbrook Travis Female, a historically controversial figure and folk hero from Scandinavia, and his wife Lagartha Katherine Winnick, a mythological ruler whose historicity has also been debated. The Vikings have a lot wrong when it comes to history.
What is the release date for Vikings: Vallah?
Before you start scrolling through the thousands of Netflix offerings in search of Vikings: Wellhalla, know this: a release date for the series has yet to be announced.
Since this is a new show that was confirmed in November 2019, Netflix is likely to announce a start date for the series. That show was first announced in May 2017, but it wasn’t until Halloween 2019, two and a half years later, that Netflix announced a release date.
It was the first film until December 20, 2019, which means it wasn’t announced until two months before the premiere. While Vikings: Vallah may not have a long wait as it is touring from the property rather than building a building from scratch, there is no reason to believe that Netflix will announce a release date for the show soon.

The plot of the Vikings Vallah?
Since the spin-off was recently announced, the details of the plot have been reduced. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make some guesses about what kind of stories Vikings are – Vallah has to tell because we know the main characters.
And to do so, we will see the real history of the Vikings. He has a huge claim to fame, as he is believed to have been the first European to discover North America rather than impose Christopher Columbus. Not only that, but Leif Erikson is said to have done it when Columbus began the full half millennium before turning the sea blue, in a land reminiscent of “Vineland” possibly Newfoundland, Canada in the 11th century.
