After the History Channel stopped doing real history documentaries and started focussing pseudo-scientific studies (UFOs and the like) as well as pseudo documentaries (Pawn Stars) which they achieve great successes with, they also tried out (mini) series. The Drama series Vikings is one of them and throughout the first two seasons entirely satisfied its audience. In early 2015, audiences will be able to enjoy the third season.

Just as in the previous season, all episodes were aired in a censored version on American TV. Besides numerous cuts to the plot, there are also several scenes that had to be censored. All nudity was deleted and some of the violence was toned down here and there. Still, the second season is pretty uninhibited and also appears to be a little heavier in terms of violence compared to season 1.

This is a comparison between the American TV Version aired on the History Channel and the Extended Version.

Both Versions differ in 45 scenes:
27 additional scenes in the Extended Version
5 additional scenes in the TV Version
10 scenes with alternative/extended footage
2 postponed scenes
1 additional location name in the Extended Version

Overall, the Extended Version is 488.14 seconds (6:58 minutes) longer than the TV Version.
