The television drama series ‘Vikings,’ largely regarded as one of the finest historical dramas of the modern era, has won many admirers, particularly for its acting and depiction of the best fighting scenes. Ragnar Lothbrok, his sons, and other heroes help Ragnar Lothbrok build the Viking kingdom. The programme, created by Michael Hirst, aired on the History Channel on March 3, 2013. If you’re curious in the series’ future and want to learn more about Vikings Season 7, here’s what we know so far.
We will not be discussing the likely release date of Vikings Season 7 in this post. Rather, we’ll talk about the likely reasons for the show’s cancellation.
Is Vikings Season 7 Cancelled or Renewed?
‘Vikings’ season 6 part 2 premiered on Amazon Prime Video on December 30, 2020. Season 6 Part 2 is made up of ten episodes, each of which lasts roughly 45 minutes. Here’s everything we know about Season 7. It was revealed in January 2019 that the sixth and final season of the programme would be the last. Michael Hirst, the series’ creator, was extremely clear about where he wanted the tale to go. Hirst’s passion in the Vikings and their culture kept him engaged for seven years. “Many times my days and nights for seven years were full with Vikings,” he stated in an interview with Gamespot. You know, I used to write [until] 12 a.m. every week when I went to Ireland. “It’s time to call it quits on this programme.”
Hirst went on to talk about what the end of the show means for the characters, as well as how it affected him. As most of his favourite characters in the programme had to be slain, he got very distraught. Lagertha, one of the most powerful shield maidens in the world, is slain by her adoptive son, Hvitserk, in the first part of Season 6.
What Are the Reactions of the Fans About the Cancellation
It is also known that fans were outraged at the death of the show’s main character, Ragnar Lothbrok, in the fourth episode. This marked the start of a downward trend in watching. Nonetheless, Hirst has said that ending the programme after season 6 was a conscious decision, not the consequence of a drop in viewership.
This Isn’t The End for Vikings
All of these things combine to guarantee that the seventh season of ‘Vikings’ is officially cancelled. Yes, there is no turning back. Even though the beloved series is coming to an end, fans have plenty to look forward to since Hirst isn’t done introducing the world to Norse heroes. In 2019, it was revealed that Michael Hirst and Jeb Stuart will be appearing in a series of episodes called ‘The Vikings: Valhalla,’ which would take place 100 years after the events of ‘Viking.’ The future show will be available on Netflix. In the interim, you may catch up on past episodes of ‘Vikings,’ which are accessible on Hulu through the History Channel app or website up to season 6 part 1.
