Vikings will pillage on TV screens no more, at least not in it’s current form.
The History channel has cancelled its top series, Vikings, after a successful run of 6 seasons and a total of 89 episodes. The current backlog of season 5 and 6 episodes should run the scripted show through 2020. Season 5 still has 10 episodes left in its schedule which should run through Jan 30. Additionally, they have already finished production on the final season.
It’s not all bad news, the creator, Miachel Hirst, and the studio (MGM Television) are looking to potentially extend the show with a new spinoff series.
See you in valhalla.
