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,” said Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President of Programming, HISTORY.

“It has been my pleasure and my privilege to work with HISTORY and our partner MGM over five seasons and 69 episodes of Vikings. Now we are ready to begin production of a 20-episode season six that will deliver a huge and unexpected revelation to our audience,” said Michael Hirst, creator and executive producer.

The raids begin again when Season 5 of Vikings premieres Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 9/8c on HISTORY.
