    Vikings: Valhalla will officially rage on through season 3, season 2 coming in 2023
    Here's hoping shirts remain optional.

    Vikings: Valhalla (TV series)
    WATCH IT NOW ON Netflix,
    Whether it's because of the action, the historical setting, or all those shirtless Norsemen running around, Netflix has made it clear it wants more of Vikings: Valhalla, the sequel series to Vikings.

    Series creator Jeb Stuart already told EW that he was quietly developing a third season before the first season even hit the streaming platform, but Netflix has formally revealed that the show will indeed return for a second and third season.

    The cast — which includes Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson, and Leo Suter — has been secretly filming season 2, which recently wrapped production. The streamer has plans to premiere it next year, while shooting for season 3 will begin this spring.

    Netflix had initially ordered 24 episodes of Vikings: Valhalla, and Wednesday's announcement confirms that order will be split up into three seasons with eight episodes each.

    Vikings: Valhalla premiered Feb. 25, and subscribers watched 194 million hours of the show within its first nine days on the platform, according to Netflix. The historical drama also ranked No. 1 on the Netflix top 10 list of most-viewed programs for the week of Feb. 28, in addition to making the top 10 list in 90 countries.

    Stuart returns for the next two seasons, as does Corlett, Gustavsson, Suter, and unspecified "others," per Netflix.

    The first season, taking place a hundred years after the original Vikings, featured the English king ordering a massacre of every Dane on his lands. In retaliation, the Vikings assembled their forces to claim the throne of England, while dealing with internal conflict between the pagan and Christian Vikings.

    Corlett stars as famed Viking explorer Leif Eriksson, Gustavsson as Leif's shield maiden sister Freydis Eriksdotter, and Suter as Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson. Leif and Freydis get swept up in the war when they arrive on the shores of Kattegat on a mission of vengeance.

    "Fans of Valhalla — THANK YOU to the millions of you who have watched (and rewatched!) season 1. The numbers have been mind-boggling and beyond my wildest expectations," Stuart said in a statement. "I'm thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing season 2 and that production will start soon on season 3. While the storylines for Leif, Freydis, Harald, Olaf, Canute, and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you've seen so far. SKÅL!!!"
    Shoot. I forgot to post my interview with this. I'll do that soon, after a meeting.

    Extras?

    #1 Netflix show looking for paid extras for filming in Ireland this summer
    "Vikings: Valhalla" is looking for extras ahead of filming the third season of the hit Netflix show in Ireland this summer.

    "Vikings: Valhalla" is looking for extras as filming for the third season of the hit Netflix show will begin in Co Wicklow this May.

    "For the new season of Valhalla, we are looking for extras," a spokesperson for the Netflix production said.

    "Filming will take pace in and around Co Wicklow from May through the summer this year.

    “We are looking for people of all ages, looks, shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. No previous experience is needed.”

    Only those who are residents in Ireland are being asked to apply. If you're interested in applying, you can email extras@vhproductions.ie.

    "Vikings: Valhalla" is a spinoff of "Vikings," which aired on the History Channel for six seasons and was also filmed in Ireland.

    Season one of "Vikings: Valhalla," filmed in Ireland and now streaming on Netflix, chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter).

    Netflix says: “As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory.”

    The first season of "Vikings: Valhalla," filmed at Co Wicklow's Ashford Studios, made it to the #1 spot on the Netflix Top 10 with 113 million hours viewed and reached the Netflix Top 10 in 90 countries.

    Netflix confirmed last month that the hit show will return for both a second and third season:

    While the production of season two has already wrapped, season three will begin filming in Ireland this May and throughout the summer.

    Lough Tay / Guinness Lake, Blessington Lakes, Avoca Mines, the Wicklow Coast, and Powerscourt Waterfall were all used as filming locations for "Vikings: Valhalla."
    I've posted a lot of these cattle calls here over the years. KA was the big score because we got a lot of followers cast on that. Hopefully, we'll get a few more someday...
