Barbarians (Netflix)

This new series is one for the ages. Barbarians is a Netflix Original that primarily follows Arminius. While raised by the Roman people, once he saw the treatment his original tribe received, he separated himself from the Romans in order to stage a rebellion that would change the lives of all those forever. that he knows.

Barbarians looks like Netflix wanted to make their own version of Vikings, and in some ways it looks like a copycat. However, that doesn’t change the fact that there are plenty of awesome battles for fans of Vikings: Walhalla to enjoy, and the politics of the tribes looks very familiar in a way similar to what we see in this new series.

The Thor Movies (Disney+)

He is the mighty Thor. For those who don’t regularly watch Marvel movies, Thor is one of the most powerful Avengers and is a Norse god, who has a trilogy (so far) of films that show his history as a hero, from his first adventures on Earth in Ragnarok and the end of his homeland.

While the Thor the series isn’t necessarily exact (they’re just superhero movies based on Norse mythology), it’s still great fun for fans of Vikings: Walhalla. If you like the show’s Norse mythology, you’ll see plenty of references in the Thor movies, as well as appearances from other famous Norse gods such as Loki, Odin, Hel, and more. And with Thor: Love and Thunder released in 2022, now is the best time to watch them all on Disney+.

Norseman (Netflix)

Sometimes you just need a break from all the drama and intense bloodshed. Normans, another Netflix original series, is about the life of the Vikings living in the village of Norheim, but with a comedic twist that often ends in shenanigans for these so-called “warriors.”

Normans is such a breath of fresh air for fans of Norse history. While Normans has all the costumes and accents you imagine, just like Vikings: Walhalla, it’s so funny and parodies Nordic culture rather than taking it seriously. We love drama, but sometimes we just prefer to sit back and laugh. What makes this show even better is that even though everyone is dressed as Vikings, they speak in modern slang quite regularly, so it’s even more fun.

Game of Thrones (HBO Max)

You knew it would be here, let’s be honest. game of thrones was a popular HBO series that ran for eight seasons. During his much-talked-about run, he has followed several claimants to the Iron Throne, for whoever sits there rules all of Westeros. From north to far east, men and women will fight to the death to claim it and be crowned ruler of the seven kingdoms.

game of thrones was a stellar show and won several awards. For fans of Vikings: Walhalla, I think it’s the only show that does battle scenes better than Vikings, and is a great choice because of it. the game of thrones to throw is excellent, the story is exceptional (for the most part) and everything else comes together so well. Don’t miss this one.

Real Vikings (History Channel)

Ever wanted to know more about the real Vikings? That’s what real vikings would like to inform you. After the success of vikings on History Channel, this show was created to tell viewers about the real Vikings the show is based on, looking at their history, lore and everything in between.

I mean, if you’ve watched both vikings and Vikings: Walhalla, I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to watch this show. Although it’s not as intense in action as the dramas, as it’s a docuseries, it’s still intriguing to watch and really teaches about the world of the Vikings and their culture, showing where the popular series pulled all his ideas.

The main stars of Marco Polo.

Marco Polo (Netflix)

If you are looking for another historical drama, Marco Polo is the way to go. Based on Marco Polo (the person, not the child’s play) and his years with Kublai Khan of the Mongol Empire, following his rise from mere merchant’s son to prominent politician.

I was appalled when I found out that Netflix canceled this show after only two seasons. Marco Polo was so good and something that many could really appreciate, especially fans of Vikings: Walhalla. With great attention to the culture of the Mongol Empire and its customs, and a protagonist who was truly badass, it had all the makings of a great show. Unfortunately, it ended far too soon.

The Witcher (Netflix)

One of the most popular shows on Netflix is ​​also a great show to watch next. the witcher, with film and television star, Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, follows Geralt, a legendary witcher who can kill both a monster and a man with his sword. We are told her story alongside Ciri, a princess turned warrior, and Yennefer, a powerful witch.

While the witcher East far more about fantasy than Vikings: Walhalla (as there is legitimate magic in this show, which features witches and a wild variety of strange and dangerous creatures), this series is always a fantastic choice fair for the fights. If you are a fan of the fights of Vikings: Walhalla, oh boy, are you going to like Geralt. Whether alone, in a group, or just training someone, the dude always has a sword and is ready to fight, making him an incredibly badass character. And with the witcher Season 3 along the way, might as well watch the first two seasons now.

Black Sails (Starz)

Last but not least, we have Black sails. This Starz series is set in the 18th century and acts as a prequel to Treasure Island, follow Captain Flint and his escapades in the age of piracy and how he and those around him became the legends we know today.

I kind of consider black sails the pirated version of Vikings: Walhalla. Although it’s a drama, it’s one of those series that I think teaches you about a culture that you may not know much about, i.e. what resembled the life of a pirate at the time. With plenty of awesome fight scenes as well as intriguing characters (many of which are based on real people), black sails is a fun time and will have you wanting to say “Arrrr” soon enough.

Vikings: Walhalla has, luckily for it many fans, already been given the green light for a season 2, but I doubt it will be out for quite some time. Until then, be sure to watch any or all of these awesome shows for something that might ease the pain of binging. Vikings: Walhalla so quickly.
