Vikings will end with the upcoming sixth season with the creators of the show looking to develop a spinoff.
The History Channel show is currently airing its fifth season but production has already been wrapped on the dixth and final one which will consist of 20 episodes.
Vikings originally set out to follow the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok (Fimmel) and tell the sagas of Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers and his family. Because it was based on actual historical figures and events, Vikings had a finite number of stories to tell, and had been building towards an end, set by Hirst as the creative mastermind behind the series.
The sixth and final season will air later this year and likely continue into 2020.
