Yeah I'd have to agree. I watch a lot of Series' these days, but this is definitely one of my faves.

I keep thinking it's going to taper off, original characters get killed off and new ones come in, but the new characters all grab you straight away and it just continues to deliver with that gritty feel.

 

I think the priest-guy at the end of the last show (had his way with the wife when hubby was still warm in the ground, she was noisy too, I needed a cigarette afterwards) will be a hard nut to crack.

Well after all of my hyping up, I didn't really go much on that one.

 

Spoiler

Horny priest very quickly injected into show, I think I will end up hating Ivar and his love of killing for the sake of it and Lagertha raping guys, haha, yeah OK, that was funny but a bridge too far methinks. And he then escaped quite easily. The remaining interests for me are Beorn, Floki and Aethelwulf. Hope it gets better.

Good show this week, looking forward to Lagertha’s army of babes kicking some more arse later on.

HISTORY® ORDERS 20 EPISODE SIXTH SEASON OF HIT 
DRAMA SERIES ‘VIKINGS’

New York, NY – September 12, 2017 – HISTORY has ordered a 20 episode sixth season of the hit drama series “Vikings,” it was announced today by Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President of Programming, HISTORY. Additionally, series regular Katheryn Winnick is set to helm one episode in season six, marking her directorial debut. Production for season six is slated to begin this fall in Ireland.

“‘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 Lehrer. “Michael Hirst has only scratched the surface of his epic saga. We look forward to continuing our partnership with one of the greatest writers in this era of Peak TV and entertaining our viewers with 40 new episodes over the next two seasons.”

“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.  “There are many reasons why I love this show, not least for the commitment and creativity of everyone involved in making it, but perhaps even more important is the spirit that drives this production - one of the happiest, most collaborative and most authentic productions I have ever been involved with. And so we sail on.”

“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. Season five cast includes series regulars Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”), who joined this season, as “Bishop Heahmund” along with Katheryn Winnick (“Lagertha”), Gustaf Skarsgård (“Floki”), Alexander Ludwig (“Bjorn”), Alex Høgh Andersen (“Ivar the Boneless”), Jordan Smith (“Ubbe”) and Marco Ilso (“Hvitserk”).

Winnick’s role as Lagertha has garnered her a “Best Supporting Actress” nomination at the 2015 Critic’s Choice Television Awards and a “Best Performance by a Lead Dramatic Actress" nomination at the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards.

Yes it was a shocker. Made me think it was time for the series to finish. It has really has lost focus and direction since Ragnar's death. None of the next generation is stepping up as a heroic or sympathetic character to keep the show moving forward.
