Vikings season 5 premiere date 2017

When will Vikings season 5 premiere? History renewed Vikings for a fifth season of 20 episodes. What about the start date in 2017?

It is too early for series Vikings to leave the television broadcast. This was stated by History president Jana Bennett on March 17, who also confirmed the information on the renewal of the project for Season 5.

According to received information, the production of the new 20 episodes will start in the summer 2016, and there is official information that Jonathan Rhys Meyers has joined the cast as a series regular. Who, exactly, will play this talented actor, we do not know, because the representatives of History channel keeps this information secret.

The premiere date of the fifth season is appointed to February 2017 and, probably, the broadcast format is the same as in the fourth season (the first 10 episodes will be shown at the beginning of the year, while the remaining 10 will be broadcasted at the end of the year). According to statistics, the series has more than 4.2 million fans (in the USA) and in the current season, the project has remained a top 10 cable drama series. The positive reviews from critics and huge support from the fans ensured it a place in the broadcast of the channel History in 2017 and it is unlikely to be the final season of this series.

Vikings season 5 premiere date – [February 2017] (will be updated)

Remind that the MGM TV expertsdeal with production of the show and magnificent Michael Hirst manages the creation. The series is based on the sagas of the Vikings raids of the early medieval Scandinavia to Britain. A key character of the story is a legendary Viking leader Ragnar Lothbrok.

Well, waiting for the returning of Vikings on the screens! Follow the updates!

UPDATE 1 (Sept.14, 2016): Vikings will return for the second half of Season 4 on November 30, 2016.

    Season 4 so far a disappointment…

    • Brandi

      What you mean? I have watched Vikings from the beginning. Best program by far I love this and watching Ragnar and his personality change is in its self addictive )

    • Jon Doe

      No, it’s history. Ragnar the Red. Finally a story behind the myth. Better than HBO’s show, but slower. That’s what the truth brings. Best thing on TV ever.

  2. Warrior

    Dr*gs? I don’t like what you’re doing with Ragnar’s character – please stop!!!

    • lynn

      Then stop watching it!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Abubakarsadiq

    Best series! but if Ragnar dies then its end of the series.

  11. Bill

    Have enjoyed this from the start.cant wait til season 5.glad Ragnar still alive.

  12. Hoody

    Its History after all, told as best they can with the usual Hollywood flair, but still the best show going, besides the other 2 I like , WD, and GOT.

    Will Ragnar die, surely, he’s based on a human, mortal as we all are, the series can go up to a point, where it will either run its course on his life, or runs into the time line of humanity, all things end at some point to continue on a different path.

    Can this be stretched out past Ragnar, yes, but than it would evolve a much different view, and follow several descends through follow up history, but it won’t be the same, I suppose it could turn into some sort of game of thrones show from that point on, but with more reality.

    What ever History does to follow The Vikings, they and the actors have done one hell of a job with this show.

    • Jon Doe

      History never runs out. I remember reading about Ragnar the Red, but never understood one tenth of what’s being shown. I’m waiting for his death so we can move on to another hero. This show should only end when Vikings were eliminated from history. Ragnar created some of the eeriest distant travel. Vikings would concur Asia and the mid east and still visit Newfoundland. They would have developed the new world, but they trade and concur, not develop from scratch. This show, after all, is called Vikings, not Ragnar.
      They also helped create Russia and built the city of bones (ST Petersburg). That alone would be an interesting story.

      • Miss Max

        I was born on The Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland and Labrador, next door to the Viking site at L’anse aux Meadows and it is just astounding. Seeing first hand the buildings and artifacts just makes everything so real to me, I can just imagine Ragnar sailing ashore and claiming the land. Can’t wait for next season.

  13. Bren

    Holy cr*p, my brother got me addicted to this show and I watched all 4 seasons in 2 weeks. Now I have to wait until next year for Season 5, bummer!

  14. T Baker

    Can’t wait for the next season! Awesome show, one of the Best out there!

  15. sesho

    I enjoy every minute of Vikings its the only show you can sit and watch hours on end…cant wait till season 5 bring it on and make it quick please.

  16. Mark Flemming

    Ragnar must remember why he’s alive

  17. Karen

    Have they already done the second part of season four ? I started watching it when it came out on the history channel but I got behind so I was able to get caught up on it and watched season two and three and part of four to get caught up . But I didn’t know the second part of season four was out ?? If it is would someone let me know please . Thanks

  18. Sandi

    Love this show. Bummed that I have to wait until 2017 for season 5.

  19. Missy

    I hope the series continues with the history of Rollo so that viewers will know why the seer told him, “if you could see the future, you would dance in the sand on the shore”. His descendants were famous historical figures.

  20. Pamela

    Vikings is the best show on History. Can’t wait for Season 5 (February 2017 is that the start date?)

    • Frieda

      Ditto. Who will be the next King…….. And what of Rollo and Magnus……

    • zenaida

      I like Rollo and he became the duke of Normandy in History, he really does exist!

  21. Kat

    Ivor the Boneless really does figure as one of the great historical Viking leaders so, I’m gonna go for Ivor. His son? Edward becomes the first King of England – do I have that right?

  22. Tracy

    The first king of the first United Kingdom was Albert (watch The Last Kingdom). I also don’t want Ragnar to leave but his character has evolved to the point where I find it hard to see him as the strong Viking raider/earl that he was. Yeah Rollo was a great leader in history. I believe he ruled as a Duke in Normandy. Even so he’s a traitor to his family, his beliefs and his people. Not interested in really following his story. But Bjorn is a different story!

  23. S.M.

    Love Vikings & Love Love Ragnar. Not ready for Ragnars story to end. That said, it is will be Lagertha, Bjorne, Rollover stories that propels us forward into history.
