HISTORY announced that it has renewed a 20-episode, sixth season of Vikings. Production is slated to begin in Ireland this fall, ahead of the highly-anticipated two-hour season five premiere on Wednesday, November 29 at 9 ET/PT on HISTORY. Additionally, Canadian Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha) is set to make her directorial debut for one episode in season six.
Over the past five successful seasons, Canadian talent – both behind and in front of the camera – have propelled Vikings to the critically-acclaimed series that it is today. Since its premiere in 2013, an outstanding roster of Canadian actors alongside Winnick, including Alexander Ludwig, Jessalyn Gilsig, Donal Logue, and season five new comers, Adam Copeland and Kris Holden-Ried, have brought their exceptional talents to the Vikings tribe.
