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 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.
