Season 6 will be the last.
Can't say that I am surprised or sad, show has been going downhill for a while now.
Remember the scene where RAGNAR sits by the EDGE of the water and talks to his now DEAD daughter???
That's as good as it gets.
Or the other scene where LAGERTHA tells her 12 year old daughter that she wants to hold her one last time as a child now that she's become a WOMAN???
Scenes like those are what's missing now.
The show began as a wonderful story about a FARM FAMILY and has MORPHED into one where it seems like they're trying to compete with another show like Game of Thrones.
And apparently winning POPULARITY TESTS also isn't why most of the VIEWING AUDIENCE chose to watch Vikings.
Killing off ATHELSTAN and RAGNAR and replacing him with his HORRIBLE SON IVAR was also a HUGE MISTAKE as well.
There's just NOTHING likeable about this character that one can RELATE to or ROOT for.
And Even though he keeps doing GROSS things to other people, The DISGUSTING PSYCHOPATH is still also a BIG BORE.
Ragnar should have done everyone (both other characters and we the VIEWERS) a favor and killed him with the AXE in the WOODS back when he was still an INFANT.
Apparently they are going to make a spin off show. We'll have to see how that one is. I still enjoy Vikings and think it's entertaining, however I don't think it's as good as earlier seasons.
Thanks for the info Jessica.
IF Lagertha and UBBE are in it, and it goes back to being about them living there in the SETTLEMENT as a FARM FAMILY again that could be good.
Because this Games of THRONES mentality is extremely BORING and definitely is NOT the reason why one fell in love with this show.
I remember a scene where Ragnar is riding a boat up the river and looks at the shore and has a vision of the old family farm. Lagertha is there with Gida and little Bjorn & Athelstan. It's about all he's lost. :family_mwbb: :house_abandoned:
Yes that was another good scene where we get a GLIMPSE of what he'd LOST when he took the offer to become the next EARL of KATTEGAT after he killed HARALDSON (the EARL who BURNED down his Family Farm).
As you may recall, it was also SIGGY (the WIFE of the EARL) who got down on her knees saying:
after he killed the EARL.
And she also did it so that the other CREEPY OLD MAN that her daughter was FORCED to marry wouldn't become the next EARL.
And she also KILLS HIM as a way to MAKE SURE that Ragnar would be the next EARL.
So basically Ragnar was TRICKED and SHOVED into taking the JOB that he never planned on having in the first place.
And then the other SWEDISH KING screws with him and he ends up having his job.
But apparently NONE of it means as much to him as living back on the FAMILY FARM with LAGERTHA and his other 2 kids.
Which is also INTERESTING, due to the way he also had 4 OTHER YOUNG SONS at that time by the BROOD MARE (who kept producing another SON every year for 4 years for him).
But we also see NONE of those 4 boys there in the VISION he has on the BEACH in Paris.

So far it's just talks for a sequel and no info on storyline/timeline or anything.
