Since premiering back in 2013, History Channel’s Vikings has gone on to become a huge favourite of many a genre fan. If you’re one such fan, we’re afraid we’ve got some bad news for you…
Courtesy of Deadline, it’s been revealed that Vikings will come to an end after its sixth season. To soften that blow, however, creator Michael Hirst is in talks with MGM Television to develop a sequel series of sorts.
Currently, Vikings is in the midst of its fifth season, with the season finale due to air on January 30th. Right now, we’d have to imagine that the sixth and final season of the show will come to a close during early 2020. Said final year will be made up of twenty episodes.
Obviously plot details for Season 6 have yet to be revealed, with the current fifth season still with plenty of action and twists and turns to play out.
Expect more on all of this as we get it.
