History will end the Vikings series with the sixth season, though the story may continue, according to THR. The show is currently finishing up with Season 5. Season 6 of the Vikings series will begin later this year. Creator Michael Hirst is reportedly in talks with History and producer MGM Television about a series that would allow the story of the series to go forward. Hirst would create the new series with Jeb Stuart (The Fugitive).
Vikings is the critically-acclaimed series from creator and sole writer Michael Hirst (Academy Award-winning film Elizabeth and the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series The Tudors) and is a family saga that tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages.
Hirst serves as executive producer along with Morgan O’Sullivan, James Flynn of TM Productions (The Count of Monte Cristo, The Tudors), Sheila Hockin (The Tudors, The Borgias), John Weber of Take 5 Productions (The Tudors, The Borgias), Sherry Marsh and Alan Gasmer. Arturo Interian is executive producer for History.
Vikings is an international Irish/Canadian co-production by TM Productions and Take 5 Productions. MGM Television serves as the worldwide distributor outside of Ireland and Canada. Vikings is produced in association with Corus Entertainment.
