  17. cattales

    Vikings is one of the most exciting tv series I have ever seen. It’s a high quality show. Normally I don’t like watching battle scenes, but I love watching these battle scenes. They are amazing! I can hardly wait till season 4!

  22. jean

    I heard the show starts again in febuary 2016 I am 70 yr old and I love the show

  23. Joan

    The most exciting series I have ever watched. The cast is outstanding. Just wish we didn’t have to wait so long in between seasons. I heard the story follows the actually history of the Vikings.

    • Bill

      Actually it’s difficult to get a 100% perfect history of the Vikings. Much of what They did was never recorded and has been left to speculation . The Catholic Priests wrote most of what We know of Them today and Their writings are pretty slanted against the Vikings. We do know of Their travels in Russia as far as Constantinople and of Their voyages to the Americas to some extent but as I stated earlier much of Their history is open to speculation .

      • Olde Rose

        Their dragonships rode ON the water, not in it. They were the stealth technology of the era, availing them of access to inland cities via rivers. In those times, they took prisoners from Slavic states to Constantinople, where Islam craved free labor and had many goods for which the Vikings were eager to trade. That was the genesis of the slave market, the bartering of white prisoners (Slavs) for silks, spices, and precious gems/ores. Of course, the Norsemen also pioneered the summer pleasure-cruise industry…pillaging/raping while guzzling tankards of Aquavit. OOF-dah!

  24. scelliemae

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show!!! Haven’t missed an episode. Really wish they could give us more in each season and it didn’t take so long to get to the next season. PLEASE keep this series going!

  25. Sheila

    YES!!!! fantastic news cannot wait for this show to begin again!!!!!

  26. enigma

    I purchased seasons one, two and soon three. I love the show and the characters, the actors and actresses make them real and believable. I would have been greatly disappointed had the show not been renewed, after learning Graceland was dropped I had to come check on this one, so glad it will still be around.

  27. Jeff Eddy

    Awesome news to read that season 4 will begin airing, FINALLY, in Feb. 2016! As many have mentioned they wish it wasn’t SO LONG between seasons. 100% agree. They can get 2 Walking Dead seasons between 1 Vikings. Hopefully the History channel is getting our responses from here and everywhere and would make more episodes per series or 2 series in a year. The Vikings are already the #1 watched cable series on Thursdays. And deservedly so! The best series (non-Starz /HBO which got me hooked on watching a series was the Starz series “Spartacus” as there are no commercials and permitted to get more violent, sexual, etc. and would’ve LOVED to to see The Vikings on like a like a commercial free, more violent version of what’s shown now!) on TV today along with The Walking Dead. Adding a 2nd season through the year would seem to be a win-win for fans and network ratings along with the incredible actors and all involved with AWESOME show!

  28. Cat

    Cannot wait!!!!

  29. jane

    Such an awesome show. I am 80 plus years and can truthfully say this is the best best best show I have ever watched. It seems like years since season three ended. I agree with others, we need more episodes if possible without changing the story line. The actors all fit their
    Characters one hundred percent. Simply am having a hard time waiting for season four to start.
    HURRY HURRY HURRY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Bonnie Sween

    I am SO glad they are coming back…. It is a interesting show, that you can’t wait for the next week….

  31. Betzy

    Thank goodness it is renewed. This is such a Great Show and very informative as well based on some of History.
    I just found out my ancestors were Vikings, so I feel a real connection with the show.

  32. Reggie Barrett

    Can’t wait until season 4. Exciting,Compelling, and so realistic. Go Vikings!!! They are all great actors bringing out their best in this show. Thursday is my TV night with Vikings!!!

  33. Nichole bruno

    Love the show! So happy it will continue for another season, and hopefully many more!

  34. kimmie fitz

    Can’t wait to purchase season 4! Bjorn, Rollo, Ragnars sons, can’t wait to see them rise! Will Netflix also have season 4 on DVD? Best show ever, tops game of thrones in many ways with the actors showing more passionate emotional portrayal of their roles and the fact that it’s based on a real era is fascinating!

  35. Sandra Colburn

    I have watched all three seasons and can’t wait for season 4!!!! The set is so authentic. I feel like I get lost in the story as if I am part of it! Great series!!! I look forward to it every season.

  36. Hapbo lee

    Best show ever!!

  37. Jeanette

    Can’t wait till it starts. We need more historical shows like The Vikings.

  38. Terry Hartz

    I think the Viking series is awesome. The costumes and weaponry are so realistic . The characters are so life-like, it makes you feel like you’ve been whisked away back in time. Truly interesting to watch. Hope this series continues for many seasons. Thanks for ultimate entertainment folks, keep up the great work.

  39. Masinmo

    There’s a reason “Braveheart” is so loved. Same here. Fantastic show!

  40. brian h

    I cant wait I am so excited for this season of Viking to me it is the best show on regular tv maybe premium tv between Viking and game of thrones is a tuff call but either way I will be watching both faithfully and they are the best shows on tv period. I hope there will be another 5 seasons after this at least I am so glad this season is going to be 20 episodes long that is music to my ears so to say.

  41. Vicki

    Can’t wait!

  42. tracy

    Other than the Walking Dead, this is the best show on television. Actually the only 2 I watch. I love Travis Femmel he is so adorable. Love the battle scenes, the best actors ever. Will miss seeing Althestan and Siggy. Love Bjorn and Lagertha. Calf is good looking. Count Odo is viscious. Love this show.

  43. Katherine

    I am a elderly woman who loves this show. My son turned it on when I was visiting him, and I caught the very first episode. I have been, shall we say, hooked on this program since then. I will have to look it up but I do not remember having 20 episodes to watch. My only complaint about the show is that it isn’t on the TV enough. In other words, I REALLY LIKE THIS SHOW.

    • Lala

      I can’t wait to watch this fabulous story. I love it

  44. Barbara Rice

    I am soon to be 78 and I love the show. Cannot wait for the new season!

  45. tracy

  47. Claud
