What’s This TV Show About?
A History channel action-adventure series, the fifth season of Vikings stars Alexander Ludwig, Alex Høgh Andersen, Peter Franzén, Katheryn Winnick, Jordan Patrick Smith, Gustaf Skarsgård, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The period drama delves into the Viking warriors and their strange, ruthless world. Season five kicks off with Ivar the Boneless (Andersen) asserting his leadership over the Great Heathen Army, as Queen Lagertha (Winnick) reigns as over Kattegat. Meanwhile, after avenging their father’s death, the sons of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) devise a new strategy. Surprising alliances and astonishing treachery rule the day, even as the Vikings aspire to rule the world.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of Vikings averaged a 0.46 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.90 million viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 30% and down by 16%, respectively. Find out how Vikings stacks up against other scripted History TV shows.
Despite declining ratings, History renewed Vikings for a sixth season, a couple of months ahead of its season five premiere. After the season four finale, creator Michael Hirst said he thought there was sufficient material for another two seasons and that they’d end the historical drama on their own terms. Will it end with season six, or will History want to continue the story? That remains to be seen. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsen ratings and update this page with breaking developments.
