This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of January 7, 2021.
Ragnarok is a Norwegian series that follows a teenage boy who doesn't even realize he's the God of Thunder.
The show was so successful it made it to Netflix's most popular list in the UK on February 5th, even securing 5 places higher than Henry Cavill's The Witcher.
After season 1's short but highly entertaining six 45-minute episodes that concluded in an epic battle between Magne and Vidar, let's find out what's next for the Nordic series.

In case you missed Netflix's announcement, yes, Ragnarok season 2 is officially happening! News of the renewal came on March 4, 2020, with the streaming giant's Instagram post captioned: "you can all stop asking now. season 2 is happening."
Season 1 was released on Netflix on 31 January 2020. Naturally, people were expecting to see season 2 around the same time this year. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it seems unlikely for the series to come up with season 2 on the expected date.
There is no recent news regarding how far the series is in terms of filming status too, or whether they resumed filming between the lockdowns.
For now, all the fans could do is wait and rest assured that season 2 is surely coming, although we don't know yet when.
Towards the end of season 1, Magne and Vidar finally faced each other in an epic battle. Just as when Magne was about to lose, he managed to summon lightning, which ended the fight and presumingly killed the giant Vidar too.
For season 2, we're expecting to see Magne as he continues to develop his inherited celestial powers. We're still unsure whether Vidar survived the lightning attack. If he did, the two will surely cross paths in the future. He is also most likely to face the wrath of the other giants now that he's become a huge threat to their existence.
With hints that Magne's brother Laurits is actually Loki, there's also a possibility that he will become the show's new villain at some point.
We're expecting major cast members to reprise their roles for Ragnarok's follow up season. They are David Stakston as Magne Seier, Jonas Strand Gravli as Laurits Seier, Herman Tømmeraas as Fjor, Theresa Frostad Eggesbø as Saxa, Emma Bones as Gry, Henriette Steenstrup as Turid Seier, and Synnøve Macody Lund as Ran.
Vidar's (Gísli Örn Garðarsson) death remained ambiguous at the end of the first season, so we're not totally crashing him out from the list just yet.
We were expecting the season 2 trailer to drop any day now. However, with the Coronavirus pandemic disrupting filming schedules across the globe, we will all have to hold tight a little longer.
Stay tuned for the latest updates. In the meantime, here's season 1's official trailer.
