Bjorn Ironside has ambitions for the Kingdom of Kattegat, he dreams of peace and prosperity, but the fates have a different plan for the new King. A threat is looming, an enemy is resurgent–so much more ruthless than the rest. Lagertha too has dreams, to bury her sword and return to the simple life. But as enemy forces gather, Bjorn and Lagertha will rise to the challenge, because they are Viking heroes and can never surrender.
History confirmed today that Vikings will be coming to an end after its already-announced sixth season. The news comes well over a year since the veteran drama was last renewed, though a premiere date for its final run has yet to be announced.
Vikings is currently airing its fifth season, with four episodes remaining until its season finale later this month on January 30. While production is said to be complete on its sixth and final season, a premiere date has yet to be penciled in.
While the end of Vikings is in sight, fans may be interested to learn that there is talk of a possible new series in the future from the same team that would continue the franchise. Everything is in the very early stages at this point, so any official word will likely come at a much later date.
