With RTE Two just finishing its show of season one of Vikings, the makers of the period drama The History Channel, have given the green light for a third season to be made. According to Deadline, there will be ten episodes comprised within this new third season.
History General Manager Dirk Hoogstra gave the announcement, "Vikings has taken viewers by storm and has established itself as one of the most compelling, visually stunning dramas on television."
He continued, "With its large, passionate and loyal fan base, Vikings has cemented History firmly in the scripted series genre, just as we are the leaders in reality television." RTE is yet to comment on whether they will broadcast the newer seasons but it looks likely.
