Vikings is a historical drama television series created by Michael Hirst. It premiered on March 3rd, 2013 in Canada on the History Channel. Creators announced in January 2019 that the 20 episode-long sixth season was going to be the last. The sixth season released on December 4, 2019. But as fans know, a sequel is all set to release on Netflix by late 2021. It is called Vikings: Valhalla. It is supposed to cover the loose ends of the previous season.
What is the story of the Upcoming Season?
Inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, Vikings is based on the legendary but notorious Norse heroes. It revolves around the farmer Ragnar who rises to fame and eventually becomes the Scandinavian King. The series follows his rise and his adventures in England, Scandinavia, and the Mediterranean.
Till now the focus was primarily on Ragnar and his children. There have been multiple power shifts. But Valhalla is likely to shift its focus a little. Since the script is still in the making, little can be guessed about how things turn out. Season 6 has loads of unanswered questions. Until the second half of this season concludes, we cannot particularly say anything about the fates of the characters.
Who is in the Cast?
Since the sixth season has not concluded yet, we cannot say much about the cast. But most of the original characters will likely reappear. There might be some amount of catharsis among them. We expect Alex Hogh Anderson, Alexander Ludwig, Linus Roache, and John Kavanagh to return.
