DESCRIPTION:
(from History's press release, September 2017) HISTORY has ordered a 20 episode sixth season of the hit drama series "Vikings," it was announced today by Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President of Programming, HISTORY. Additionally, series regular Katheryn Winnick is set to helm one episode in season six, marking her directorial debut. Production for season six is slated to begin this fall in Ireland. The previously ordered 20 episode fifth season will air in two parts, beginning with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, November 29 at 9PM ET/PT followed by eight episodes airing every Wednesday at 9PM ET/PT. The remaining ten episodes of season five are slated to air in 2018. Across all platforms, the last season of "Vikings" averaged 7.8 million viewers per episode. "Vikings" is a top five drama across ad supported cable and averaged 4.1 million total viewers last season in Live+7 delivery. Additionally, the series reached 34.3 million total viewers in linear Live+7. "'Vikings' has creatively sailed to monumental lengths. The series has evolved from early raids in England, to the heart-stopping death of Ragnar Lothbrok, to the fierce battles of the Great Heathen Army, and now we'll see the sons of Ragnar exploring and conquering the known world," said Lehrer. "Michael Hirst has only scratched the surface of his epic saga. We look forward to continuing our partnership with one of the greatest writers in this era of Peak TV and entertaining our viewers with 40 new episodes over the next two seasons." "It has been my pleasure and my privilege to work with HISTORY and our partner MGM over five seasons and 69 episodes of 'Vikings.' Now we are ready to begin production of a 20 episode season six that will deliver a huge and unexpected revelation to our audience," said Michael Hirst, creator and executive producer. "There are many reasons why I love this show, not least for the commitment and creativity of everyone involved in making it, but perhaps even more important is the spirit that drives this production - one of the happiest, most collaborative and most authentic productions I have ever been involved with. And so we sail on."
