The History drama returns in 2017.
March 17, 2016
History announced today that Vikings has been renewed for a fifth season. The veteran drama has maintained its rank as one of the top 10 cable dramas in its current fourth season, continuing to draw strong viewership in key demographics.
The cable network has ordered another 20 episodes of Vikings - matching its Season 4 number - for a premiere in 2017. It was also announced today that Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be joining the cast as a series regular in Season 5, though details on his role are being kept secret for the time being.

@Chris Well then that's pretty awesome! History must be throwing a gigantic bucket of money their way for a 20 episode production season. I can't think of any other show on this scale that even makes it past ten episodes in a season, usually 8. That's pretty cool.

This would have been a decent show, except for the irritating Travis Fimmel. I can't watch him without an urge to slap his inane grin which appears to be his only facial expression, no matter what the situation. Still, just a personal view as I can see why people like it.

@Steven Not a typo... Season 4 looks like it is going to be 20 episodes. The first 10 finish in April and the next 10 (still billed as Season 4) will return later in the year.
The article mentions Season 5 premieres in 2017.

The article mentions 20 episodes and that it's a match for the season four episode count. Is this a typo? Every season so far has been only ten episodes.

It's starting to show its age. It's come a long way from Ragnor as a simple farmer/warrior, and now it's all about royalty and the problems of ruling. There was some interesting stuff about Viking culture, and now that's mostly disappeared.

This show is next to perfect. If you do not like it, then you have been skewed by these other awful shows that the main networks have come out with.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be a very cool addition, I liked The Tudors and was disappointed that Dracula was cancelled.
