A historical drama, Vikings first aired on the channel History on March 3, 2013. It is written as well as directed by Michael Hirst. Throughout the years, we have seen the ups and down of the Viking Ragnar Lothbork and his family. The show is midway with the first part of season six being thoroughly aired with ten episodes and the second part to be released with another set of ten episodes sometime in 2020.
Who Is in the Series?
The current cast of the series includes Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick, Moe Dunford, Josefin Asplund, Alexander Ludwig, Gustaf Skarsgard, Jennie Jacques, Alex Andersen, Morgane Polanski and many more.
The series follows Ragnar’s journey from being a mere farmer to a warrior and then ultimately the commander of the Viking tribes. His family is equally ferocious and supportive of him. He successfully completes his desire of raiding the rich England that includes the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms and Francia.
The series has continued well-on for six seasons with the last part to be aired in 2020. However, Michael Hirst has made a statement that this would be the last of it. The series won’t continue toward a season 7 or more. Hence, there would be no trailer or a break-down of it. But this definitely won’t be an end. It is made known that a spin-off to the series is in the works which will be airing on none other than Netflix.
Valhalla, an exclusive 24 episode show is going to be directed by Michael Hirst and will be written by Jeb Stuart. The show will be filmed at Ashford Studios in Wicklow, Ireland. Hirst, in his interview with the Entertainment Weekly gave us a peek in his project:
“One of the big issues is the Christianisation of the Pagan World. You are going to see Christian Viking Armies fighting Pagan Viking Armies, and that’s really interesting.”
