The series being helmed by Zack Snyder and Jay Oliva was originally set to premiere back in 2022 itself. But fate had other plans. The series is finally going to release in 2024, with streaming probably set to begin this September.

And for fans of Norse mythology, and Zack Snyder as well, the release couldn’t be overdue any longer. The series, coming from The Stone Quarry and Xilam animation studios, is all set to showcase Norse mythology in all its glory. Add to that the fact that the Man of Steel director is the brain behind the series, and we might have something great cooking.

While the news might be coming as a big bonus to the fans, there are other details about the series which fans can feel happy about. The news that Hans Zimmer would be in charge of the score is one such news. One can only imagine the magic his music will weave into the story of Sigrid’s tale of vengeance.


With stars like Sylvia Hoeks, Lauren Cohan, Jessica Henwick, Peter Stormare, Jamie Chung, and Pilou Asbæk leading the show, no wonder we are about to witness something magical unfold come September.
