History’s ‘Vikings’ Gets Early Season 6 Renewal | TV News
History has announced that Vikings will be renewed for 20-episode Season 6; the news comes before the fifth season has even seen its November premiere, but is indicative that the show continues in its rather unexpected success, a success demonstrated by an average of 7.8 million viewers per episode last season.
Vikings, which details the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages, is expected to reach even greater heights in the future, perhaps gratuitous to the Game of Thrones fans looking to get their next fix of rugged adventure once the series closes.
Creator and executive producer Michael Hirst commented that the renewed season “will deliver a huge and unexpected revelation to our audience,” promising even more excitement to the epic series. Series regular Katheryn Winnick will be making her directorial debut in one of season six’s episodes, set to begin filming this autumn.
The format of the sixth season will likely follow from the upcoming fifth, which, also consisting of 20 episodes, will air in two parts beginning with a two-hour premiere followed by eight weekly episodes; the remaining episodes are expected to air in 2018.
Vikings Season 5 premieres in the UK November 30. Catch the new episodes on History.
