Tv Season Info

Season six returns following the battle between brothers which has left Bjorn victorious and a hero to the people who have been under the tyrannical rule of Ivar for so long. As the new leader of Kattegat, Bjorn struggles to fill his late father's shoes as king, while facing several dilemmas and wrestling with the idea that power overshadows morals. Meanwhile, Ivar, searching for a new path to separate him from his past, is seen traveling along The Silk Road eventually leading him to Russia. He meets his match in Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky), a ruthless and unpredictable Russian ruler, who shocks even Ivar with his merciless actions. While Lagertha has her own agenda - to live a quieter and less public life on her own farm, but new dangers lurk close to home. This season, the Vikings continue to take over Scandinavia as Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) travel to Iceland to uncover the mystery circling around Floki's (Gustaf Skarsgård) disappearance and Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) pursues his personal vendetta against Ivar.

Critic Reviews for Vikings Season 6

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

We can never be certain about how well a series will nail the ending, but at least with "Vikings," the fandom's faith can lean on a firmer foundation based in history and demonstrated skill as opposed to spectacle and whim

Which, again, fun. But for a show struggling to recapture the sense of sweep and character it initially promised, Ivar's new pal is leading him, and us, down a well-trod path to the same bloodied ground.

All told, a strong return for Vikings, blessedly absent of all the preposterous nonsense that made last season so unbearable. On the other hand, it was largely setup for a conflict that I think has already worn out its welcome.

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Vikings' first two Season 6 episodes introduced some wicked new wild cards while teasing future conflicts.

Dec 5, 2019 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

It remains to be seen whether Vikings can sustain a level of interest fans of the show have come to expect, but hopefully, this final season won't follow Lagertha's lead and disappear into obscurity.

Dec 5, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

What seems evident after the first two episodes of Vikings Season 6 is that the series is starting to wrap up organically, unlike that show with dragons that fizzled out in its final season.

Dec 5, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5.0 | Full Review…

Vikings' subplot game has been hit or miss throughout its run... Still, the prospect of Ubbe on a Floki quest, while Bjorn faces his first real adversity as king could have the makings of character-defining arcs.

Audience Reviews for Vikings: Season 6

    With Vikings coming to an end I feel as though a chapter in my life is ending. I remember watching season one and everyone thought i was crazy to be watching a scripted drama on the History Channel. Looks at us now, Vikings is a must watch for any lover of the genre. I recommend it to all.

    Great start to the season. Invested in every storyline and if this quality keeps up, it will be one of the best seasons of the show.

    Strong start, I hope it stays that way. Oleg and Ivar relationship is very interesting.

    Loving the start to the new Season. The relationship between Ivar and Oleg is so intriguing.
