About The Vikings
The Vikings series is based on the sagas of Ragnar Lodbrok, a legendary Norse hero who was known as the enemy of Anglo-Saxon England and West France.
Ragnar is shown to be a farmer who becomes famous by taking over England and, with the help of his family and other soldiers, becomes king of the Scandinavians.
In later seasons, the show shows what his sons get up to in England, Scandinavia, Kievan Rus', the Mediterranean, and North America.
Who Is the Vikings Season 7 Cast?
If Vikings Season 7 happens at all, the main characters from the previous seasons will be back. We don't think there will be any new cast members, but the showrunners could surprise us.
Katheryn Winnick plays Lagertha, Alexander Ludwig from Bad Boys 4 plays King Bjorn, Patrick Smith plays Jordan Ubbe, and John Kavanagh does The Sheer. Marco plays Hvitserk as well.
Ivar the Boneless will be played by Alex Anderson, Sigurd will be played by David Lindstrom, Kalf will be played by Ben Robson (Animal Kingdom), and Oleg the Prophet will be played by Danila Kozlovsky.
What is the Vikings' Season 7 Plot?
Just recently, the first half of Season 6 of Vikings came out. The second half is still to come. So, it's hard to guess what will happen in season 7 without knowing what happened in season 6.
People say that season 6 will be the last, but we might be surprised if season 7 is added. So, we won't know for sure what to expect in Season 7 until Season 6 is over.
Vikings Season 7 Release Date:
In the summer of 2020, filming for Vikings: Valhalla began at Ireland's Ashford Studios. Even though some of the actors and crew tested positive for COVID-19, filming quickly got back on track.
Valhalla was supposed to start making things in the first half of 2020, but that didn't happen because of the coronavirus. The first episode of the show was supposed to air near the end of 2021, but problems pushed the date back even further. If nothing else goes wrong, Vikings: Valhalla will start on Netflix in 2022.
Vikings Season 7 Trailer
The team making the movie hasn't put out a trailer yet. Until then, you can watch the trailer for Season 6 Part 2 and watch the whole season at once on Amazon.
Will the Vikings Return for a Season 7?
Fans of Vikings can't wait for season 7 to start. Vikings won't be back for the seventh season. So that people could watch it for longer, Season 6 of Vikings was split into two parts.
When will the seventh season of Vikings begin? No more seasons of Vikings are planned.
Fans will be upset, but the second half of season 6 is still available. It will first be available on Prime Video on December 30, 2020.

Reviews of Vikings
The first episode got a score of 71% from Metacritic. Alan Sepinwall of HitFix liked how the characters were cast, especially how Fimmel played Ragnar.
The story is about people and what they do. The Wall Street Journal's Nancy DeWolf Smith said that the place and the clothes were “real and authentic.”
She also said that Vikings wasn't a celebration of sex and violence, but rather “a study of character, endurance, power, and social, emotional, and intellectual awakening” (unlike, say, Spartacus).
The Washington Post's Hank Stuever called the show “compelling and powerful.” In terms of acting, writing, and size, it was like Rome, Sons of Anarchy, and Game of Thrones.
He also said that the show was “just another Tony Soprano” because it was about “pride and dignity among criminals.” Neil Genzlinger said that the photography and acting in Vikings were “arresting,”, especially Fimmel's. He also said that the show was like Game of Thrones and Spartacus because it didn't try to be too subtle.
James Poniewozik of TIME said that the relatively simple conflict between generations in Vikings “doesn't have the narrative ambition of a Game of Thrones or the political subtleties of a Rome,” nor does it have the dialogue skills of these series. However, he said that it held up well compared to the “tabloid history” of The Tudors and The Borgias.
“The story arc of Vikings is about historical forces, not about the shallow people in the show,” he said. Clark Collis of Entertainment Weekly called Vikings “a mess,” even though the acting was good.
Brian Lowry, writing for Variety, called the show an “unrelenting cheese-fest” and a “simpler version of Game of Thrones,” but he also called it a “pleasant distraction.”
David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle liked the acting and characters, but he didn't like the “glacial pace,” lack of action, “flabby directing,” and “gassy scripting.” Metacritic gives the second season a score of 77%, and Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 92%.
