“The entire idea of Season 2 is that we take these three heroes who’re in Scandinavia and blow them out of their consolation zones. Season 2 for Harald and Leif is a highway journey: It’s Thelma and Louise on the Dnieper River. The two of them will start this unimaginable journey. Freydís has to go to Pomerania, which is a really tough setting.
Season 2 will present that typically if you hang around with the individuals which are similar to you, eat such as you, speak such as you, you’ll be able to nonetheless run into bother. So you’ll want to stir the pot, which I believe is what the Vikings did. And they did it superbly, higher than most likely every other tradition on the market. So we put collectively this motley crew of nobles, Muslim astronomers and con males, and so they shove off from Novgorod.”

Harekr (Bradley James)
“Harekr is the ruler of Jómsborg, a type of legendary Viking place the place the uber-pagan Vikings lived. He’s an excellent warrior, however since he’s pagan, he’s bought a bull’s-eye on his again for any of our pagan hunters, like Olaf.
The Jomsvikings had been very strict and inflexible, so Harekr has very, very, very particular guidelines that he lives by. That’s how the Jomsvikings rolled, they had been very loyal to their chief. They would combat to the demise, even after they didn’t typically suppose that their chief was proper.”
Mariam (Hayat Kamille)
“Mariam is one of my favorite characters. Her name is a nod and sign of respect to Mariam al-Astrulabi, the great astronomer, navigator and mathematician from the House of Wisdom in Baghdad. Our Mariam is an astronomer who’s stuck in Novgorod. She went north in our telling of the story, north from Constantinople to study the heavens, and specifically, to study the meteorites and that sort of thing. She’s a polyglot and can also read Latin, Greek, Arabic and Russian.”

He’s played by Marcin Dorociński, the Polish actor who was in The Queen’s Gambit, where he played a Soviet chess player. He’s also cast in Mission Impossible 8. He’s got this wonderful wit that audiences will really enjoy, like how he doesn’t really give Harald a whole lot of ground. He’s got that tough-love uncle thing.”
