The series has been renewed for another 10 episodes after just 4 episodes of Season Two have aired in the US.
Dirk Hoogstra from the History Channel said,“Vikings has taken viewers by storm and has established itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television. With its large, passionate and loyal fan base, Vikings has cemented History firmly in the scripted series genre, just as we are the leaders in reality television.
“We are incredibly fortunate to have such an enormously talented cast and crew led by Michael Hirst whose intricately woven storylines vividly brings the unknown, epic world of these Norsemen to life. Season Three promises to immerse viewers even deeper into the exploits of these fearless warriors who are willing to risk it all for conquest and power.”
The series features Australian Travis Fimmel and Alyssa Sutherland.
Season Two began airing this week on Monday nights at 8:30pm on SBS ONE.
Production on Season Three will begin mid year to air in 2015.
