While Vikings: Valhalla season 3 has been confirmed to be in production, a specific release date is yet to be determined; however, when could the series potentially return to Netflix, and who has joined the cast?

Vikings: Valhalla season 3 confirmed in production
Vikings: Valhalla was officially renewed for Season 3 in March 2022, alongside confirmation that filming for Season 2 had been completed in Ireland.
Showrunner Jeb Stuart commented, “I am delighted to be able to confirm that we have finished and are already editing season two and production will begin on season three soon.”
“Although the storylines of Leif, Freydis, Harald, Olaf, Canute and the rest of our amazing cast are under wraps, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you’ve seen so far. SKAL!!!” – Jeb Stuart, via Netflix press release.
Peter Friedlander, Head of Scripted Series at Netflix, explained how “fans have spoken and we couldn’t be happier to bring them more of the epic adventure and heart-pounding action they love.” Adding how, “There’s a lot more to avenge and more battles to fight!”
Stuart would also acknowledge to Collider how he already knew what Season 3 would explore before Season 2 was filmed.
“I knew where Season 3 was going to be because of this culture shift [of Vikings finding solace outside Scandinavia], I knew we had to go to the New World eventually. So what’s in the toolbox? How does one fill Leif’s toolbox, and what does Freydis bring to bring out these people, who are the last bastion of pagan faith? And we know what is happening in Europe at that time. So it’s exciting for us. And so yeah, I’m not doing this season by season.” – Jeb Stuart, via Collider.

Vikings: Valhalla Season 3 Release Date Predictions
A specific release date for Vikings: Valhalla season 3 has yet to be revealed by either Netflix or the showrunners; however, it is possible to make a very early prediction based on the production cycles of Seasons 1 and 2.
Filming for season 1 began in October 2020 but was severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, with the series making its worldwide debut in February 2022.
The series would actually film the second season before the first season aired, end in November 2021, and finally return to our screens on January 12, 2023.
Luckily, the press release confirming the Season 3 renewal also stated that production was to begin in the spring of 2022; with Cosmopolitan reporting that filming had begun in at least June 2022.
Assuming Vikings: Valhalla season 3 follows a similar production cycle, fans could see the hit series return as early as late 2023, or more realistically, early 2024.
Interestingly, while Vikings: Valhalla was initially a three-season order, the showrunners are already hinting that the series could last up to six seasons worth of content.
“We really talked about one, two and three as kind of a block and then hopefully we could get to a four, five and six because the story is… I think you’ll see when you see season 2 and season 3 is almost like a novel. It has these wonderful time jumps and this growth in terms of particular characters. – Jeb Stuart, via Collider.
