Vikings is an original Canadian-Irish series broadcast by the Canadian television channel, History except for the second half of the sixth season that aired on Amazon Prime Video in some countries prior to the History airings, created and written by Michael Hirst. Originally planned to only be a miniseries, as stated by initial reports and releases, the show was renewed for a second season after the strong support it got from critics and viewers and concluded after its sixth season. The title theme song is If I Had a Heart by Fever Ray.


Plot

The series introduces us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok, a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson, who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.

But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha, a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar's brother Rollo, a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; of Earl Haraldson's wife Siggy, a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and of the monk Athelstan, whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society. As ambition and innovation rattle a civilization, these characters will be put to the test—and their way of life will never be the same again.
