Release date latest: When is Ragnarok Season 2 likely to come out?
Netflix has not announced a release date for Ragnarok Season 2.
Since Ragnarok Season 1 dropped on Netflix in January 2020, many fans have been hoping that the next season will drop on Netflix in January 2021.
Although it is expected that the upcoming season will premiere sometime in 2021, we currently don’t know how soon in 2021 that fans will be able to watch another season of exciting action and drama.
Amid the disruption to the production schedule for TV shows caused by the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, fans can only keep their fingers crossed and hope production on Ragnarok Season 2 will start as soon as coronavirus restrictions affecting the entertainment industry end.
But we don’t know yet when the restrictions will end.
Ragnarok is only one of several other Netflix shows experiencing delays in their new season after the streaming giant was forced to shut down production on scripted TV shows to curb the spread of the infection.
Other shows affected include The Witcher Season 2, Stranger Things Season 4, and Grace and Frankie Season 7.
Ragnarok Season 2 cast updates
Although Netflix has not yet confirmed the cast for the upcoming season, fans can expect that David Stakston will return as Magne, Jonas Strand Gravli as Laurits, Herman Tømmeraas as Fjor, and Theresa Frostad Eggesbø as Saxa.
Others expected to return for Ragnarok Season 2 include Emma Bones as Gry, Henriette Steenstrup as Turid, and Synnøve Macody Lund as Ran.
It remains uncertain whether Vidar (Gísli Örn Garðarsson) will return in Season 1. Vidar could have been killed in the epic battle against Magne in the Season 1 finale.
What is Ragnarok about?
Ragnorok, a fantasy drama series created by Adam Price and directed by Mogens Hagedorn, is set in the fictional Norwegian town of Edda.
The series follows Magne, the living incarnation of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, as he fights the wealthy Jutul family, whose factories are responsible for environmental pollution that is causing climate change.
However, the Jutul are not ordinary humans. They are actually the Jötunn frost giants from Norse mythology but live in Edda under the guise of wealthy human industrialists.
Magne fights to stop them from destroying the planet.
What to expect of Ragnarok Season 2
Ragnorok Season 2 will pick up where Season 1 left off after Magne defeated Vidar.
In the Season 1 finale, Fjor attacks Gry in an abandoned warehouse, but Magne arrives to save her. Vidar also arrives and realizes that Magne is Thor.
The two foes clash in an epic battle while Fjor and Gry escape from the scene.
Vidar nearly defeats Magne, but at the last moment, Magne summons lightning and uses it to strike Vidar. Vidar is defeated and apparently killed.
Magne is also hurt, but he presumably survived.
We will find out in Season 2 whether Vidar died after Magne summoned the powerful lightning strike that ended the epic battle in his favor.
After having defeated Vidar, Magne will also have to face the other Jutuls, including Ran (Synnøve Macody Lund), Fjor (Herman Tømmeraas), and Saxa (Theresa Frostad Eggesbø).
Fans are also hoping to see more of Magne’s brother, Laurits (Jonas Strand Gravli), following Season 1 hints that he might be Loki, the Norse trickster.
