The historical drama adventure series Vikings have reached its final season. The final season of the Viking was divided into two parts, and the second part is yet to be aired. Unfortunately for the fans of the show, Viking season 7 will not be happening. This brings it to the end of a sublime and surreal saga.
But on the other hand, a spin-off series, Vikings: Valhalla, has been announced, and the trailer is out. This won’t be showing any of the cast from the Vikings as this is set 100 years ahead. Jeb Stuart will write it, and the release date has not been confirmed, but the show is expected to start its production this year and will be premiered sometime in 2021 as per assumptions.
Viking season 1 was released on March 3rd, 2013, which led to 5 other seasons, which were a major hit. The last season was aired on December 4th, 2019, with ten episodes. Viking received favorable reviews for its first season and achieved a huge fanbase after that. Michael Hirst wrote it, and the original language of the show is English. It has aired six seasons with 79 episodes.
Plot of Vikings
The series portrays the infamous Ragnar Lothbork, a farmer who, later on with his skills and support of his family and fellow warriors turned to be the Scandinavian king. His brutal and heroic life is shown in the series. He is ambitious and has a hunger to explore and raid the distant shores. The show however is not entirely historically accurate. After his death, the story is carried on by the adventures and heroism of his later generations.
Season six involves the reign of king Bjorn over Kattegat, Ivar’s adventures in Rus and Ubbe’s expedition to Iceland.
- Cast and characters:
- Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha
- Travis Fimmel as Ragnar
- Alexander Ludwig as Bjorn
- Gustaf Skarsgard as Floki
- Clive Standen as Rollo
- Jordan Smith as Ubbe
And others who were part of the season 6 part 1. However for the Vikings: Valhalla a new cast is expected as it won’t be showing any characters from the Vikings series.
Vikings season 7
It is a big “no” that the Vikings series will be renewed to season 7. The season 6 part two will be the final one for the saga. However, a spin-off series Vikings: Valhalla is to be released which takes the story of Vikings a hundred years ahead and so the descendent of the Vikings series are expected to be portrayed and it will be premiered in the year 2021 which the fans are eagerly waiting for.
