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.
In Kattegat, Lagertha’s body is found and Hvitserk is missing. Worried about her children, Torvi travels to Lagertha’s farmstead and Asa tells her of Hali’s death. In Vestfold, King Hakon pledges allegiance to Harald; when Olaf refuses to do the same, Harald has him imprisoned. Amma locates Hvitserk in the forest and brings him back to Kattegat; Ubbe asks him if he knew of Lagertha’s death, but Hvitserk refuses to answer. In Kiev, Ivar is told by a messenger that Dir is in hiding and will help Ivar overthrow Oleg when the time comes. Torvi and Gunnhild organise Lagertha’s funeral; a girl named Gyda is sacrificed to follow her in Valhalla. At the funeral pyre, Ubbe, Gunnhild and Torvi say goodbye; Bjorn returns, says goodbye to his mother and swears vengeance for her murder.
