Arguably the perfect blend of historic facts and possible myth, Vikings is one of the most-watched TV series to date. But after Season 6, will there be a Vikings Season 7? There are different claims from different sources and the reason might well be a slight confusion. The most recent Vikings episodes aired from December 2019 to February 2020.
There will be a Vikings Season 7 but before that, we need to talk about the most anticipated second part of Vikings Season 6.
Second Half of Vikings Season 6
Well, the more we love something the tougher it becomes to wait for it. Despite the fact that the first half of Vikings Season 6 grieved everyone who loved Bjorn Ironside, there is always something more engaging for the viewers. Vikings is one of those rare shows which didn’t lose engagement over time. Something better replaces to carry forward the legacy of the likes of Ragnar Lothbrok. For instance, Ivar the Boneless has now become the center stage not only of Kattegat but Norway as well.
At the moment, Vikings are at the mid-season break and we don’t have any confirmed news about the release of the second half of Season 6. In addition, the current scenario could count it because the whole world is talking nothing but COVID-19. How long does the situation prevail will have an impact on the release dates of the popular TV Shows and even movies worldwide?
When Will Vikings Season 6 Part 2 Release?
You can expect the second part of Vikings Season 6 by November or December 2020. But be noted that no official statement has yet confirmed anything about the release of the next Vikings episodes. The way the episode 10 of Vikings Season 6 ended left everyone shocked at the death of Bjorn Ironside.
There is no set deadline for the release of the post-mid-break Vikings episodes. This break in Season 4 lasted for 7 months and Season 5 lasted for 10 months.
Can We Expect Vikings Season 7?
Logically, there seems not too much room for Vikings Seasons 7 because historical evidence doesn’t show too much of collective Pagan Vikings’ progress after Ivar the boneless. Most of the Vikings leaders became Christians to promote their trade with surrounding Christian counties. Already, the show has shown a significant contradiction between thoughts and actions of major Vikings characters including Ragnar. The religion is losing its grip and even Floki can’t keep things intact. It seems as if Viking Season 6 Part 2 will mainly focus on Ivar’s adventures and it will end with his death. At least, history says so!
But they don’t always do what history reveals. Hirst has already said
I am beyond excited that we are announcing the continuation of our Vikings saga … I know that the millions of our fans across the globe will be thrilled by the belief being shown in our show by MGM and Netflix.
It is clear that Netflix and MGM are willing to push things further in an attempt to showcase the adventures of some other prominent Vikings including Freydis, Harald Hardrada, William the Conqueror, and also Leif Erikson. It means that the team is ready to push forward around 100 years of Vikings achievements after Ragnar Lothbrok and Rollo. Things are going to change for sure because the next lineage of Vikings is going to be the Christian version of these warriors fighting against their very own Pagan Vikings.
Vikings Season 7 will comprise of 24 episodes and the season will be Netflix Exclusive as Amazon and History will not air the next season. Ireland’s Ashford Studio in Wicklow is going to be the shooting site of Season 7 of Vikings.
Did We Just See the Last of Bjorn Ironside?
Something is confusing though. Talking to Entertainment Tonight Alexander Ludwig said
We don’t know that, do we? I’ve been ordered by the powers higher than me that I’m not allowed to speak on the subject.
But Ludwig also added, “I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way Bjorn’s ultimate finality came to a close”. It pretty much confirms the farewell of the legendary character.
