Inside Vikings Valhalla, the surprise Netflix sequel to Prime Video’s hit Vikings show

It’s unusual for a streaming giant to make a sequel to one of its rivals’ shows, especially if the TV series in question was a major hit. But that’s exactly what Netflix has done with Vikings Valhalla, a spiritual successor to Michael Hirst’s Vikings TV show, which ended in December 2020.

Vikings may have originally aired on the History Channel, but its migration to Prime Video during its final season – Vikings was available on Prime Video in the UK as early as 2015, though – makes Netflix’s sequel all the more curious. After all, why make a Netflix series that follows on from your competitors’ own early medieval offering?
