Vikings was a popular and acclaimed fantasy historical drama TV Series on the Canadian History Channel. The series premiered on March 3, 2013, and soon the drama shot to prominence globally. Vikings have officially run its course as it concluded on December 30, 2020, with Season 6 Part B.
The series draws heavy inspiration from the life and death of Ragnar Lothbrok, a notable Viking who is a widely renowned hero of Norse mythology. In the series, Ragnar Lothbrok is played by Travis Fimmel. However, in the fourth season, the main character Lothbrok was killed off. However, the series still ran for two more successful seasons, and they were a massive hit.
Officially, the series has ended as the second half of the sixth season premiered on December 30, 2020, on Prime Video. But the fans who are heartbroken with the series’ end are in for a treat. The makers have revealed their plans to release a sequel series called Valhalla.
Is Vikings Season 7 Happening?
Vikings is regarded as the longest-running fantasy and historical drama which airs on TV. Given that the series has been around for over seven years, it featured approximately 89 episodes.
The makers, cast, and everyone else associated with Vikings have already revealed that the sixth season is the last. However, the sixth season has been divided into a couple of parts, and the previous part premiered last year on December 30.
Vikings Season 7: Release Date
There are no revelations or any development concerning the release of Vikings Season 7. As mentioned earlier, Vikings Season Six was the last season in the series, and the series will be getting revived.
The fantasy-historic saga did conclude with the final ten episodes. And no, this isn’t a piece of bad news. The series was already running towards a finale, according to the showrunner.
