We were joined on the Popternative show by Vikings: Valhalla stars Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson, and Leo Suter to discuss season 2 and how it picks up right where season 1 left off. Sam explains how the cast filmed both seasons back-to-back and didn’t have a chance to see how season 1 looked before getting into the new season.
