Also, there is good news for the fans, Queen Lagertha herself will be directing one of the episodes. Katheryn Winnick is venturing into the beautiful world of direction.
Vikings Season 6 – Update
There is no official announcement as to when the season will premiere. Fans had to wait for one and a half year for the fifth season whose first half concluded in January this year. And the second half will premiere on 28 November this year.
As for the cast of the show, we will just have to wait and watch who makes it out of season 5 alive. We can never be too sure with Vikings as the show gives tough competition to even Game of Thrones when it comes to violence and unexpected deaths. There are rumors that Katheryn Winnick may leave the show due to another show based on Assassins that she is doing for Netflix. Also, Danila Kozlovsky will be the new addition to the cast in the sixth season. The Russian actor will be portraying a Viking prince Oleg of Novgorod.
The plot is being kept as a closely guarded secret. So no spoilers for now. The sixth season will contain 20 episodes which will be split into two. The show airs on History channel whose executive producer Eli Lehrer in an interview said: “Vikings has creatively sailed to monumental lengths.
“The series has evolved from early raids in England to the heart-stopping death of Ragnar Lothbrok, to the fierce battles of the Great Heathen Army, and now we’ll see the sons of Ragnar exploring and conquering the known world.
“[Creator] Michael Hirst has only scratched the surface of his epic saga. We look forward to continuing our partnership with one of the greatest writers in this era of Peak TV and entertaining our viewers with 40 new episodes over the next two seasons.”
