The sixth and final season of the historical drama television series Vikings premiered on 04 December 2019, on History in Canada.
The series broadly follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew, and later those of his sons. The first season of the series begins at the start of the Viking Age, marked by the Lindisfarne raid in 793.
The sixth season consists of a double order of twenty episodes, split into two parts of ten episodes; the second half will premiere in 2020.
Bjorn’s army is surrounded by Olaf’s. Kjetill confesses to Bjorn that he murdered Eyvind and his family but had nothing to do with Floki’s disappearance; Bjorn remains sceptical. In Kiev, Ivar secretly undermines Oleg: he reminds Igor that everything in Rus is his, and promises Dir that he will help him escape in return for his support against Oleg. Oleg informs Ivar that he is gathering an army to invade Scandinavia, and Ivar accuses him of using him as a puppet king. White Hair’s band attacks Lagertha’s village; the farmers fight off the bandits, but many are killed, including Hali. In Kattegat, Gunnhild has a vision of the attack and leaves the city to check up on Lagertha. Ubbe names Hvitserk the leader of a trading party to the Silk Road, but Hvitserk’s poor condition makes him miss the boat, causing Ubbe to disown him. Olaf summons Bjorn and Harald and informs them he wants to gather the kings and earls of Norway to vote for a single king to rule the land. Olaf intends for this title to go to Bjorn.
