The epic Vikings series is phenomenal especially the earlier seasons, it is superb and blown me when I first started it, it is that good! And now the final ten episodes of the sixth and the last season are going to air on Amazon Prime before it was aired on the History Channel. Those episodes will release on Amazon on December 30th. We don’t know when it will be released on the History Channel.
Vikings creator, executive producer, and sole writer Michael Hirst said in a statement:
“Our monumental Vikings saga is coming to its conclusion, but not before you’ve had to chance to watch some of my all-time favorite episodes. Prime Video will uniquely expose the series finale to a streaming audience first. Prepare to be astonished, and for many surprises along the way. And if you have tears to shed, then also be prepared to shed them.”
Brad Beale, vice president of worldwide content licensing for Prime Video added:
“Prime Video has already delighted Prime members with all five and a half seasons of ‘Vikings’. On December 30, Prime members in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Ireland will be the first to learn the fates of the beloved characters as the epic drama concludes in the final ten episodes.”
It is incredible that Hirst wrote every single episode of the Vikings. That’s one of the reasons the show turned out to be this great. The story that this series has told has been very well and the production value, casting, and locations are all top-notch.
The first 10 episodes of Season 6 aired on History earlier this year and it ended with an epic battle between the Rus and Vikings where brother fought brother, Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) battling for his homeland with King Harald (Peter Franzen) against Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen), now battling with the Rus forces in an effort to get control of Norway.
Vikings are coming to an end with these 10 episodes, Hirst is developing a sequel series which is called Viking: Valhalla (No connection with the game), and it will be released on Netflix. That story will be set 100 years after the end of the original show, now this is something we all look forward to, I am sure it will be epic.
