After the end of the world-acclaimed series Vikings, it could not be otherwise than with the announcement of the spin-off. It had been announced early on, but the project had remained fairly secret.
We now learn that the first season (because we do not doubt that there will be others, released on February 25, 2022! So we will have to wait another month before we can find the universe of the North, the Vikings and their journeys.
Let's be clear from the start, the series takes place 100 years after the events of Vikings. Also, there will be no actor from the original series in the cast. The cast will be fresh and new! We will have the opportunity to discover new actors, or to rediscover them if you have already seen them in another film.
The main roles were given to Sam Corlett (The New Adventures of Sabrina), Leo Suter (Victoria) and Frida Gustavsson, a Swedish model.
They will respectively play the famous explorer Leif Eriksson, his feisty sister Freydis Eriksdotter and the prince of the North Harald Sigurdsson, whose ambition is devouring. The latter is the Viking king who tried to conquer England in 11ème century. Bradley Freegard and Caroline Henderson complete the cast.
Behind the camera, we find Michael Hirst who wrote the script for Vikings. Even if he is not an executive producer on this shoot, he still assists Jeb Stuart.
