Netflix’s sequel series Vikings: Valhalla has added Creed II and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings actor Florian Munteanu to its cast for its second season.
Munteanu will play George Maniakes, a real historical figure of the Byzantine Empire who answers only to The Emir. He joins a cast that includes Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson and Leo Suter.
Vikings: Valhalla premiered on the streaming service in February and was soon renewed for a second and third season. Jeb Sturt created, wrote and serves as showrunner of the sequel which takes place 100 years after Vikings‘ conclusion. Stuart executive produces alongside Vikings creator Michael Hirst, Morgan O’Sullivan, James Flynn, Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer, Sheila Hockin, and John Weber.
Munteanu will be seen next in Creed III, where he will reprise his role of Viktor Drago, alongside his co-star and director Michael B. Jordan.
Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, VIKINGS: VALHALLA 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). 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.
