History To Conclude Vikings With Season Six

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.
