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 (9) | 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.

Vikings has been nominated for a string of Emmy awards, in categories ranging from editing to special visual effects, but has yet to receive any. An absolute travesty.

Alexander does an incredible job of portraying Bjorn's torment over his choices and his struggle in trying to make the right decision.

Dec 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

    Wow!! This show never disappoints. It just keeps getting better. Ivar's the man right now just saying Uber is looking pretty hot.

    Love this series. Bravo.

    Although I think the season was good, the ending was terrible. I don't understand why they had to create such an open ended finish. I have to add that as always, the critics on rotten tomatoes diverge from the popular consensus. That has become such a constant that whenever critics have great reviews you know there is something wrong with the show or movie.

    This show is so slow and boring
  • Apr 05, 2020
    Great acting, plot and cinematography. A bit slower than usual
  • Mar 29, 2020
    Too many unclear events troughout the series... in particular: the devotion/love to Athelstan (why? he's just a monk like many others), Hvitserk decided to kill Ivar and eventually becomes his ally, why Rus'people decided to invade Norway? just to please Ivar? this is ridicolous. The ending is really disappointing
  • Mar 15, 2020
    Bjorn was not supposed to die everyone was waiting for something bad to happen with ivar and nothing happened to him...this is not how it was supposed to end! VERY DISAPPOINTED!

    does anyone else think Vikings on history channel jumped the shark in season 6? barely any historical facts there , why the hell would Russia want to invade Scandinavia? Especially Norway, whats wrong with Finland, Sweden and Denmark? Was there any real reason to throw away resources at a place that was cold and lacking in good farmland? Not to mention a people that were always looking for a good fight? who ever wrote this season need to pick-up a history book a read a little. I understand creative license but use it to make a good story better, please do not put this junk on the History channel, very disappointed. History Channel , not much about history anymore. that's another story.
