Let’s be honest: you’re a bit late to the Vikings party, but you’re in luck. Although the sixth and final season of the historical drama has already aired, fans now get to stream the entire series in one shot.
Starring Katheryn Winnick, Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen and more, the TV series was created and written by Michael Hirst for Canadian network History Channel. Shot in Ireland, the show garnered a cult-like following soon after its premiere back in 2013.
WHAT IS VIKINGS ABOUT?
Vikings is inspired by "the Norsemen of early medieval Scandinavia," specifically looking at Viking warrior and farmer Ragnar Lothbrok and his family. Kicking off at the start of the Viking Age in 793, the series wrapped up in 2021.

WILL THERE BE MORE SEASONS OF VIKINGS?
Unfortunately, Vikings has officially wrapped up so there won’t be any new episodes in production anymore. That being said, the success of the series has led to the creation of a sequel dubbed Vikings: Valhalla. The latter show premiered on Netflix in February of 2022 and it's still up there for all users to stream.
Vikings: Valhalla was also shot in Ireland and takes place a hundred years after the events explored in Vikings take place. According to an official description, the show "chronicled the beginning of the end of the Viking Age, marked by the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066."
The first season of Vikings: Valhalla features eight episodes. The show was already renewed for a second and a third season in March 2022. No word yet on when those new episodes will premiere.
