History has revealed that Vikings, which reaches its season five finale on 30th January, will conclude with season six although series writer and creator Michael Hirst is currently developing a spin-off set in the same world.
Vikings is inspired by the sagas of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), whose successful raids on England brought him fame and led to him becoming a King. Upon the death of Ragnar, the series follows the fortunes of his sons as they journey to England, Scandinavia and the Mediterranean.
Production is already complete for the twenty-episode sixth and final season. The first of these are expected to air later this year with the remainder set for 2020.
