Vikings: History Channel (finally!) Shows the latest episodes

Fans of Vikings who are waiting to watch the back half of Vikings Season 6B on the History Channel, we’ve got some great news.

The cable network has announced that the final episodes will begin airing on Saturday, June 5 at 8 a.m. / 7 a.m.

Fans were looped back in December when Amazon Prime announced it would take the rights to Vikings to be streamed and launch this month.

“Prime Video has already thrilled Prime members with all five and a half seasons of Vikings,” said Brad Beale, global vice president of content licensing at Amazon, in a statement at the time.

On December 30, Prime members in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Ireland will be the first to know the fates of beloved characters as the epic drama ends in the final 10 episodes . “

“Our monumental Vikings saga is coming to an end, but not before you’ve had a chance to watch some of my all-time favorite episodes,” creator Michael Hirst said at the time.

“Prime Video will first expose the series finale to a streaming audience. Prepare to be amazed and many surprises along the way. And if you have tears to shed, then be ready to shed them as well. “

It was a surprising decision, especially because the series was such a hit on the History Channel, but it gave fans with access to Amazon the ability to binge on the latest episodes at their leisure.

For those still waiting for the final episodes, you’ll remember that Vikings Season 6 Episode 10 apparently killed fan favorite Bjorn Ironside.
