A number of readers have been asking about the return of Vikings to SBS.
There’s good news with Season 6 to begin on December 11, around a week after its US return.
This begins a final season of 20 episodes, which again will screen as 2 x 10 blocks (so it could feasibly still be on air into 2021….)
Meanwhile a sequel Vikings: Valhalla has just been announced for 24 episodes at its next home on Netflix.
The epic and chaotic Viking’s saga continues with a sixth instalment. Following the battle between brothers, Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) is left victorious and a hero to the people who have been under the tyrannical rule of Ivar for so long. As the new leader of Kattegat, Bjorn struggles to fill his late father’s shoes as King, while facing several dilemmas and wrestling with the idea that power overshadows morals. Meanwhile, his brother Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen), a self-proclaimed God ruling over Kattegat with alarming terror, is searching for a new path to separate him from his past and is seen traveling along The Silk Road – eventually leading him to Russia. He meets his match in Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky), a ruthless and unpredictable Russian ruler, who shocks even Ivar with his merciless actions. Season 6A episodes will be fast tracked from the US.
(time TBA) 11 December on SBS.
