Vikings: Valhalla, the upcoming historical fiction drama series is quite an awaited title. The Netflix Original is a spin-off to History’s Vikings and begins a hundred years after the original story concludes. Fans are expecting Netflix to release the series in February 2022. Until then, here are other shows like Vikings: Valhalla.
Game of Thrones
Of course, let us begin with the classics. If you are one of the very few people who haven’t seen this HBO show, then this is your sign to watch it right now. As for people who have already seen it, Game of Thrones is too good not to re-watch multiple times.
The 7 season series is about the 7 kingdoms of Westeros and the conflict that arises between them. Based on George R R Martin’s saga A Song of Ice and Fire, the series perfectly blends fantasy and the nitty-gritty details of historical dramas. Despite its unpopular last season, Game of Thrones remains of the best and is a must-watch.
Claimed by some to be the new classic surpassing Game of Thrones is The Witcher. This Netflix Original stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter. Just like Vikings and Vikings: Valhalla, The Witcher combines elements of fantasy and historical dramas to bring to viewers the best experience.
Legend of the Seeker
Another series based on a novel series is Legend of the Seeker, which is based on The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. Sam Raimi created the two seasons of this adventure series that aired from 2008 to 2010. The plot of Legend of the Seeker surrounds Richard Cypher and his fight against the tyrannical rule in his homeland that left his father dead.
Sharing the similarity of a real-life myth and legend is Camelot. The Primetime Emmy award-winning series only has 10 episodes and is the perfect watch while you await the release of Vikings: Valhalla. Camelot, as readers might have guessed already, is based on the Arthurian legend of the court of Camelot.
The Last Kingdom
The Last Kingdom is the final name on this list of shows we think most closely would appeal to those who await Vikings: Valhalla. Like many others on the list, The Dutch Netflix Original is based on a series of books- The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell. Due to the vast size of the book series and the limited seasons The Last Kingdom has had, fans expect the final season to be a major deviation from the books, making it even more intriguing. The fifth and final season of The Last Kingdom will be out in mid-2022.
