Vikings has become one of the most popular historical dramas and the series airs on History and Amazon Prime Video.

Fans are wondering how many seasons of Vikings there will be, and has everything you need to know.

How many seasons of Vikings will there be?

Vikings was created by Michael Hirst for the History channel, and the series made its debut in Canada in 2013.

In January 2019 it was announced season six, which is made up of 20 episodes, would be the final season.

The sixth season was ordered in September 2017, before season five had even started airing.

The final season made its debut in December 2019, with the first 10 episodes airing.

Fans are still waiting to hear when the final 10 episodes will be arriving, but it will hopefully be before the end of 2020.

So for fans who were hoping for a season seven of Vikings, this will be sad news.

However for many viewers, they felt the series started to take a downward turn after the main character, Ragnar, was killed off in season four.

With many main characters having seen their demise in the most recent seasons, there is not much of a story left to tell.

Although fans are waiting to see what happens following the huge battle against the Rus Vikings and the Scandinavians.

There is still plenty of action to be seen, and viewers are still waiting to find out if Ragnar’s son, Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) is still alive.

Still, it is not all doom and gloom for avid Vikings fans, as a sequel series called Vikings: Valhalla is being made for Netflix.

No official release date has been announced yet, but the spin-off will be set 100 years after the last episode of Vikings.

The 24-part series will introduce a completely new cast, who will be living during the tail end of the Viking Age.

Much like Vikings, many of the main characters will be based on real historical figures.

Speaking to TV Guide, Ludwig said he would not turn down a role in Vikings: Valhalla.

He said: “This might not be the end of my time with Bjorn. I do think that there’s a lot more story that can be told with this show if it was done the right way.

“There’s just so much incredible history in the Vikings culture, so who knows?”

At the end of season six part A, Bjorn was stabbed by his brother Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) during the battle.

Part B of the final season will address whether Bjorn was fatally injured, or whether he lives up to his nickname ‘Ironside’.

The trailer for the second half of season six reveals the saga is coming to an end, and fans are already sharing their disappointment.

Speaking of the final segment of Vikings, Hirst told TV Guide: “I can’t tell you too much, but what I can tell you is the [mid-season premiere] is an extraordinary episode and a number of things that you thought were true at the end of [the mid-season finale] proved not to be quite true.”

History channel executive Eli Lehrer told Digital Spy: “Vikings 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.”

Vikings fans will be sad to hear there is no hope of a season seven, but they may find comfort in the fact there is more of the Viking world to come.

They will have to wait and see whether any of the cast members from the original series make an appearance in the spin-off.
