'There's more story to tell': Netflix's Vikings Valhalla could return after season 3

Vikings Valhalla's creator has suggested that Netflix's hit historical drama could continue in some form after its third season.

Speaking exclusively to TechRadar ahead of Vikings Valhalla season 2's release, showrunner Jeb Stuart expressed his hope that Netflix renews the show for a fourth season or potentially greenlights some spin-offs.

Currently, Vikings Valhalla is set to end after its third season, with Netflix only renewing it for two more instalments (in March 2022) after season one's launch. Additionally, Valhalla's story has been confirmed to conclude with the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066, which marked the end of the Viking Age.

Vikings Valhalla season three, which has already been filmed, is sure to wrap up one of the best Netflix shows' primary stories by depicting the Battle of Stamford Bridge on the small screen. If the series' third entry does bring the curtain down the Viking era, viewers might wonder how it can continue with no more story left to tell.

Stuart, though, is optimistic about Valhalla's future post-season three. The Fugitive and Die Hard writer wouldn't comment on whether season three will actually end with the Battle of Stamford Bridge, or if Netflix had quietly informed him it would renew Vikings Valhalla for a fourth season. However, Stuart is extremely open to returning for more instalments, citing his desire to continue the journeys of Leif Erikson, Harald Sigurdsson, and Freydís Eiríksdóttir in some guise.

"We've completed [filming on] season three," Stuart confirmed when TechRadar asked for an update on its development. "And we'll be working on it [post-production] for several more months. 

"It's been a terrific journey for us, but we feel like there's more of the Valhalla story to tell. We hope our good friends at Netflix believe that as well because we've got a lot of story on all these characters out there."

Can we expect to see Vikings Valhalla season four, then? Much depends on how well seasons two and three perform. Vikings Valhalla's first season racked up over 266 million hours viewed between February and April 2022, so its follow-up seasons will need to match or surpass that figure for Netflix to consider renewing it for another outing.

If Vikings Valhalla season three is the end of the line for the historical drama series, how does its second season lead into events in the show's potentially final outing? Stuart wouldn't give too much away, but did excitingly hint at how season two will set up its successor.

"Season two plays into season three in a very big way," he teased. "At the end of this season, I think there's some wonderful closure. At the same time, a big door opens up that leads us into season three, which I'm really excited about."

Thankfully, we don't have to wait to find out how Vikings Valhalla season two ends. The popular Netflix show's latest instalment is available to stream in full on Netflix right now – Valhalla season two landed on the world's best streaming service on Thursday, January 12.

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
