Vikings fans are going to be getting a whole lot more.
Irish / Canadian drama Vikings has been renewed for a fifth season of 20 episodes.
That comes on top of the 20 episodes for Season 4, currently airing its first block of 10 episodes on SBS.
The History channel has also announced Jonathan Rhys Meyers will join the series in 2017.
“The brilliant writing and depth of historical research and authenticity brought to the screen by Michael Hirst paired with our talented cast and crew, has made this series one of the most compelling, visually stunning historical dramas on television,” said Jana Bennett, President and General Manager of History.
“Vikings has raided the hearts of audiences and we are thrilled that Jonathan Rhys Myers will become a bigger part of the History family after his incredible performance in our upcoming production of Roots.”
A second block of 10 episodes will air on SBS later this year.
