Vikings has reportedly been picked up for a fourth season, per the Sunday Times:
Investors have stumped up €45m to fund the fourth series of Vikings, the History Channel’s hit drama, before a tax-break deadline.
The record funding round was closed on February 12, a day before the Revenue Commissioners ended the Section 481 tax break. It is understood the money will fund 16 episodes of the series, which is largely filmed at Ashford Studios in Co Wicklow and in the surrounding countryside.
Preparatory work has started for the new series and filming is expected to start in May. It brings total tax-break investment in Vikings to more than €120m across four series.
At this time, History has yet to confirm Vikings’ Season 4 renewal. Stay tuned.
