History Renews Vikings for Season 3
Get ready for more Vikings.
History has renewed the drama series for a third season, which will air in 2015, the cable channel announced Tuesday.
“Vikings has taken viewers by storm and has established itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television,” History’s executive vice president Dirk Hoogstra said in a statement. “With its large, passionate and loyal fan base, Vikings has cemented History firmly in the scripted series genre, just as we are the leaders in reality television. We are incredibly fortunate to have such an enormously talented cast and crew led by Michael Hirst, whose intricately woven storylines vividly brings the unknown, epic world of these Norsemen to life. Season 3 promises to immerse viewers even deeper into the exploits of these fearless warriors who are willing to risk it all for conquest and power.”
Vikings is currently four episodes into its second season. Production on the new season, which will consist of 10 episodes, is set to begin this summer.
Vikings airs Thursdays at 10/9c on History. Are you happy the show has been renewed?
