"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."
