History Channel’s first-ever scripted series Vikings premiered on March 3, 2013. Since then, Michael Hirst the creator and the writer of the show has spawned six seasons across seven years. As of now, there’s no official announcement on the seventh season’s renewal.
However, once renewed, Season 7 of the gorgeous historical drama will be shot in Ireland, like all the previous six seasons. Since the show has not been renewed for its seventh installment, there’s no update on the release date yet.
From Vikings Season 4, the History channel essentially broadcasts 20 episodes each season with a mandatory mid-break after every 10 episodes. Therefore, Vikings Season 7 will also come in two parts unless there is a change in the show’s format.

About the show
The legendary show is based on true events of the 9th century. The series typically follows the life of one family, unlike three or four hundred million in George R R Martin’s Game of Thrones.
Ragnor Lathbrok is the protagonist of the show, a farmer of the Norsemen tribe living in the Scandinavian region. Ragnor has a stunning and loving wife, Lagertha, who is supportive and an exceptionally good fighter, only second to Ragnor. Lagertha plays a very crucial role in Ragnor’s succession as a conqueror.
Meanwhile, Norsemen tribe’s only source of income comes from loot, killings and plunder. Their wealth is brought by raids conducted in the East, to Baltic Sea and Russia. The series becomes interesting when Ragnor sails to the alien West in order to conduct fresh raids, thus, peaking the excitement of the viewers.
