What could the Vikings season 6 premiere date be — and, beyond that, could it be the final season for the History series? There are reasons to absolutely ponder over both of these questions.
For the time being, let’s start things off with this: Vikings season 6 is absolutely happening. History ordered it this past fall, and as a result of that there isn’t any reason to worry about the long-term future of the franchise at any point tonight. Note, though, that tonight also isn’t the final episode of season 5. Much like with season 4 before it, there is another ten episodes coming up at some point presumably later this year. We’ve already written a little bit more about possible Vikings season 5 episode 11 return dates — season 6 is likely going to be a little bit further down the road.
It is possible that the Vikings season 6 premiere date is going to come at some point at later this year, but it’s probably not going to be until October or November. We would not be opposed to season 6 filming using the same exact schedule that season 5 is, mostly because it makes a certain degree of logical sense for Vikings to air over the holiday season when there is not anywhere near as much in the way of programming coming on the air elsewhere. Less competition means more eyeballs here, which in turn means more ratings … which in turn also means more opportunities to see a possible seventh season of the show. There’s no guarantee that this will happen, and it could just all down to whether or not that is something that show creator Michael Hirst really wants. This is his creation and the entire future of the series is heavily dependent on just how long he wants for it to last.

Remember to come back later tonight, as there is going to be a full review ahead for the midseason finale the moment after the episode wraps.
