'Vikings' Renewed For Sixth Season By History

'Vikings' Renewed For Sixth Season By History

Vikings has been a strong ratings performer, with the last season averaging 7.8 million viewers per episode across all platforms.

Vikings is a family saga that follows the epic adventures of raiders and explorers in the Dark Ages.

History made the renewal announcement this week, ordering 20 new episodes of the series, which will start airing late in 2018. Katheryn Winnick, who has starred as Lagertha since Season 1, will also make her directorial debut in Season 6.

Since its premiere in 2013, an outstanding roster of Canadian actors alongside Winnick, including Alexander Ludwig, Jessalyn Gilsig, Donal Logue, and Season 5 newcomers, Adam Copeland and Kris Holden-Ried, have brought their talents to the Vikings tribe.

Michael Hirst created the series and also serves as its sole writer and executive producer.

"It has been my pleasure and my privilege to work with History and our partner MGM over five seasons and 69 episodes of 'Vikings.' Now we are ready to begin production of a 20 episode season six that will deliver a huge and unexpected revelation to our audience", said Hirst.

"Vikings has creatively sailed to monumental lengths".

The victor of eight Canadian Screen Awards including Best International Drama, Vikings is co-produced by celebrated Canadian company Take 5 Productions. "The series has evolved from early raids in England, to the heart-stopping death of Ragnar Lothbrok, to the fierce battles of the Great Heathen Army, and now we'll see the sons of Ragnar exploring and conquering the known world", said History's Eli Lehrer in a statement.

The distribution rights to the series are held by MGM, rather than A+E, something the United States broadcaster has expressed regret about in the past. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with one of the greatest writers in this era of Peak TV and entertaining our viewers with 40 new episodes over the next two seasons". "Vikings" is produced in association with Corus Entertainment. "And so we sail on".
