“Vikings” season 6 will premiere its final season episodes on Amazon Prime Video prior to its linear home on History Channel. The Final Season consists of 10 episodes. The new episodes will hit the streamer on Dec. 30 before later airing on the show’s original network.
The series was originally set to wrap up its run with a 20-episode sixth and final season split into two parts on History Channel. The first half of the final season debuted last December. “Our monumental Vikings saga is coming to its conclusion, but not before you’ve had the chance to watch some of my all-time favourite episodes, Prime Video will uniquely expose the series finale to a streaming audience first. Prepare to be astonished, and for many surprises along the way. And if you have tears to shed, then also be prepared to shed them”-series creator and sole writer Michael Hirst said in a statement.
Vikings season 6 was announced as the final season on History Channel last year, even though Michael Hirst is preparing with a sequel series “Vikings: Valhalla” on Netflix which will be set 100 years after the conclusion of the original show.
On December 30, Prime members in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Ireland will be the first to learn the fates of the beloved characters as the epic drama concludes in the final ten episodes. “Prime Video has already delighted Prime members with all five and a half seasons of ‘Vikings’”, said Brad Beale, vice president of worldwide content licensing for Prime Video.
