History Channel is moving ahead with the renewal of Vikings for its fourth season, the network announced on Thursday.
“VIKINGS has raided the hearts of both audiences and critics, establishing itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television,” said Dirk Hoogstra, EVP and General Manager, History & H2. “We are so proud of our immensely talented cast and crew led by Michael Hirst, whose intriguing storylines and pivotal arcs have the perfect balance of scope, smarts and bloodshed to keep our loyal fans watching and wanting more.”
The Viking drama starring Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok tells the tale of the lives and adventures of the Viking warriors and portrays life in the Dark Ages through the eyes of Viking society. The series also stars Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick and Alexander Ludwig.
Five new episodes remain in the current season airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. with the season finale slated for Thursday, April 23 at 10 p.m.
Nice. This is one of my favorite shows right now and the current season is playing out nicely. Really expecting the next episode to be crazy after **SPOILER** those guys betrayed the Vikings and broke the treaty **End Spoiler** Should be a good episode. Also wondering at what point this show will have Leif Erikson.
We were so excited to see this show when it started … however, it has turned out to be more of a “Sons Of Anarchy” circa 900AD. There were no women on Viking raids. It would have been so much better if they had stayed true to the sagas – weren’t the original Vikings exciting enough??
Remember when the history channel used to show things that you could learn history from? Me neither.
It’s actually pretty fantastic in its portrayal of Viking customs and traditions. Fantastic look at the Dark Ages and the cast and story are fantastic
I’ve seen previews of the show but have never actually watched it. I may have to give it a try.
