The show is looking for extras from all walks of life and backgrounds, and no previous acting experience is needed.

Scenes for "Vikings: Valhalla" will once again be filmed in Ashford, Co Wicklow. The filming is expected to last throughout the summer.

"Valhalla," the sequel to Michael Hirst's series "Vikings," has proven to be very popular with Netflix audiences. The spin-off is set in the 11th century – 100 years after the original "Vikings" historical drama series.

"For the new season of Valhalla, we are looking for extras. Filming will take place in and around Co Wicklow from May through the summer this year.

"We are looking for people of all ages, looks, shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. No previous experience is needed," a casting spokesperson for the show stated.

The show's filming was pushed back a couple of months in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the man behind "Valhalla," its creator Jeb Stuart, confirmed in March "that production will start soon on season three."

"While the storylines for (characters) Leif, Freydis, Harald, Olaf, Canute, and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you've seen so far," he noted, the Irish Examiner reports.

Sam Corlett stars as the famous Viking explorer Leif Eriksson, Frida Gustavsson appears as the notorious Freydís Eiríksdóttir, and Leo Suter stars as Harald Sigurdsson, the famous Viking king and warrior.

"Vikings: Valhalla promises to be everything that fans love about the franchise: heart-pounding, unstoppable action rooted in rich characters and dramatic storytelling that shines the light on family, loyalty, and power. We are thrilled to bring the next iteration of the Vikings saga to life with Michael Hirst, Jeb Stuart, Morgan O'Sullivan, and MGM Television." Channing Dungey, Vice President of Original Series at Netflix, stated.
