After the History Channel stopped producing real history documentaries and started focussing on pseudo-scientific studies (UFOs and such) as well as pseudo documentaries (Pawn Stars) which they are very successful with by the way, they also tried out actual TV shows. The drama series Vikings is one of them and it is quite convincing. On 11/29/2017, season 5 premiered in the US (History) - the episodes are also available on Amazon. On 09/12/2017, before season 5 even premiered, season 6 was green-lit.
With season 4, the number of each has risen. While previous seasons had 10 episodes resp. season 1 had only 9 episodes, season 4 consists of 20 episodes. This is also the case with seasons 5&6. Due to the increased number of episodes, the seasons have been split up. As for the current season 5: The episodes 1-10 are scheduled to be aired from November 2017 until January 2018 and the remaining episodes 11-20 will air later on in 2018. Similar to the previous seasons, season 5 was censored for TV in the US.
