Our favourite TV heroes are back with the season finale of the iconic series Vikings.
The action/historical drama took the world by storm back in 2013 when it was first launched. Now in 2019, we are about to witness its denouement.
As it was officially announced by History Channel, S06E01 will see the light of day on 4 December 2019. The 20-episode season is expected to wrap up for good in the first months of 2020.
What Can We Expect from Season 6?
Not much has been revealed from the head offices, but there are several things we can deduce from the trailer.
Season 5 of Vikings left us with multiple cliff-hangers with. Suitably titled “Ragnarok”, the last episode of the 5th series saw Ivar strangle his traitorous wife Freydis, as the grand battle was taking place in front of his home.
As Björn and Hvitserk were smashing skulls and decapitating the enemy, Ivar laid down the lifeless body of his beloved on their marital bed. The two brave brothers approached the bizarre display, but there was only the spirit of Ivar remaining there. He was nowhere to be seen.
In the meantime, Lagertha was preparing for a coronation ceremony for her first-born son Björn. It is with his face that the season finished, and with it, the trailer for the sixth one commenced.
The last words we heard from Kattegat were said by the Seer. “No one will ever forget the name of Bjorn Ironside. Greater than Ragnar.”
It is known that many prominent figures like Odin, Thor and Loki died during Ragnarök. With both Björn and Ivar still alive, has the combat really ended?
Where Can You Learn More?
The show’s Alexander Ludwig, who plays Björn Ironside, has been particularly vocal on social media. On Ludwig’s Instagram page, you can see a litany of stills from Vikings season 6 and more exclusive content.
His co-stars, however, have remained quiet and mysterious. We can just ponder what that means.
In the meantime, you can feed off of diverse embodiments of the original show. For instance, you can purchase some Vikings-inspired merchandise or take part in social games. Furthermore, you can visit some of the favourite video slots websites and play the popular Vikings online slot by NetEnt. The choices are next to limitless.
Some are thrilled to see where the layered characters will end up.
But there have been cynics who are sceptical about the upcoming season. They argue that it should have stopped earlier and that it’s good it’s ending. Sure, the last season of the Game of Thrones was a fiasco, but does that have to do with History?
Whether the doubters are right or not, we have yet to see. You’ll be the judge of it. Tune in on the History channel on the 4th next
