Vikings are the Norse civilization who raided (as pirates) and traded from North Europeans homeland to vast areas of Europe in the late 8th to 11th centuries. The Vikings and their descendants established themselves as ruler and King of many parts of Europe.
Mikael Hirst has created a historical drama series “Viking” based on the story of a great hero Viking Ragnar Lothbrok from 9th century. The series was made for History Channel which premiered on 3rd March 2013 in Canada. In January 2019, it was announced that there will be 6th season and it will be the final season of the series. The 6th season (Part 1) was aired on 4th December 2019.
Viking has received huge popularity and ratings since its 1st season from the critics and audience alike. It has outstanding sound quality and fast pacing and received 93% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. The story begins with a legendary Norse hero Ragnar Lothbrok who was a just a farmer, raised-up to become a warrior while raiding into England and becoming the Viking’s Leader as well as Scandinavian King with the help of his family and fellow warriors. In the later seasons, the fortune of his descendants and their adventures across Europe is depicted.
Viking season 7 release dates:
The 6th season is divided into 2 parts and the second part is yet to be aired. However, 6th season will be the final season as per the contract with History Channel. Although there is not an exact release date for the 2nd part, we assume it will be out in 2021, considering the pandemic situation.
The cast of Vikings season 7:
We do have a fair idea who will be the cast in part 2 of 6th season, but still unsure about season 7’s cast:
– Alexander Ludwig as King Bjorn Ironside
– Alex Hogh Andersen as Ivar the Boneless
– Jordan Patrick Smith as Ubbe
– Georgia Hirst as Torvi
– Gustaf Skarsgard as Floki
There will be some recurring cast who will be joining the series with the main cast.
The Plot of Viking Season 7:
Since part 1 od season 6 has concluded on a cliffhanger, Part 2 should pick up from there. The 2nd part will be focusing on the fate of Bjorn after getting stabbed by Ivar. Future of Floki and throne of Kattegat will be explored further too. Fans will be delighted to know that though there is a cancellation of Viking series by History Channel, Netflix has announced for its 7th season before the release of 6th season itself and named it as Viking: Valhalla.
Reports suggest that the upcoming series would be 100 years ahead of the end of the original show timelines. It will show the descendants of Vikings (a new generation), their advancement in techniques and how the Vikings are flourishing during the 12th century.
