In September 2017, a sixth season with another 20 episodes was announced in the lead actress Katheryn Winnick directed for the first time.

Vikings Plot

The plot is located at the beginning of the Viking Age in the early Middle Ages, but without any claim to historical accuracy. The focus is on the story of the Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, whose figure is based on Ragnar Lodbrok, a hero figure of the Nordic Sagal literature. Another main character is the shield maiden Lagertha, whose role model is the warrior Lathgertha from the Gesta Danorum of Saxo Grammaticus, here and there the first wife of Ragnar.

Among other things, the series focuses on the first Viking journeys and the subsequent military conflicts in England, various customs and customs (eg human sacrifice, northern Germanic religion, Norse mythology) as well as political power struggles. The series also deals with the encounter of the Vikings with Christianity and the effects of the Christianization of Scandinavia.

Production

In early 2012, the Canadian television channel History Television announced that it would produce its first self-produced television series. They ordered the series Vikings with a budget of 40 million US dollars.

At the end of May 2012, the first roles were awarded. Gabriel Byrne, Clive Standen, Jessalyn Gilsig and Travis Fimmel were cast for the lead roles. The first filming began in July 2012 in the Irish Ashford Studios and with outdoor shots on Luggala, a mountain in the Wicklow Mountains.

For the second season, Alexander Ludwig and Linus Roache were cast for new lead roles. Ludwig takes on the role of adolescent Bjorn Lodbrok and Roache plays King Egbert von Wessex.

I got completely absorbed in this series. It is addicting beyond words. Excellent cast, scripts, and magical locations. Detail to costumes and sets is amazing. The only fault I noticed was the use of the same horses, (one example: a dappled grey with short white tail ridden by Ragnar when Lagertha and Bjorn left Kattegat, later used in Wessex and other locations) in supposedly different countries, and the fact that the Vikings were magically mounted in some of their cross sea raids but no clue as to where the horses came from. But all in all, a very minor detail in a great series that probably only a horse person would notice. 5 star rating

I noticed the horse issue, too. Did horses really stand for the three week passage to england in the gold of a thirty five foot boat? I don't think so. Still, a great series.

This is the most amazing series I have ever watched. It pulled me in within the first few minutes of the pilot and has not let me go. The story line, actors, scenery, and attention to detail are amazing. It is brutal yet spiritual. There is no other series like it on television. Please do not cancel this magical series. I truly believe if you bring actor Travis Fimmel as Ragnar back in spirit form your ratings will soar. Thank you
