The Vikings — and their facial hair — are back. Just one day after the release of Season 2, Vikings sequel series Vikings: Valhalla has shot up to No. 2 on Netflix’s Top 10 TV Shows list, knocking Emily in Paris off the ranking entirely. Ginny & Georgia had better guard their throne. Meanwhile, the middling Amy Adams rom-com Leap Year joins the movies list at No. 8, but The Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker still leads the way.
