‘Vikings’ Series 4 Gets 20 Episode Deal | TV News
Vikings first appeared on television screens back in 2013. It premiered on History, a channel more known for rerunning the same WWII documentaries; to say the least, Vikings was a breath of fresh air and proved a great success. Now it is back for a fourth series (or ‘season’ if you’re American) and due the success of the 16-episode Series 3, Series 4 has been expanded to include 20 episodes.
According to TVLine, the move will mean that 10 episodes of Series 4 will start airing from February 18, 2016 with the rest to be aired later on in the year. The network has previously released a trailer for the much-anticipated Series 4 which was screened at Comic-Con. This emphasised the recent betrayals of Series 3 and was ultimately a promise of more.
Created by Michael Hurst, who also at the helm of The Tudors, Camelot and The Borgias, Vikings focuses on the life and exploits of Ragnar Lothbrok. A legendary hero of Norse tradition who started life as a simple farmer and raider (because those occupations went hand-in-hand in Viking society), Lothbrok went on to become King of the Vikings in Denmark. Series 4 will continue the legend February 18, 2016.
