Season 6 of Vikings picks up after “the battle between brothers” which left Bjorn victorious and a hero to the people who had been under the tyrannical rule of Ivar for so long. As the new leader of Kattegat, Bjorn struggles to fill his late father’s shoes as king, while facing several dilemmas. Meanwhile, Ivar, searching for a new path to separate him from his past, is seen traveling along The Silk Road eventually leading him to Russia. There, he meets his match in Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky), a ruthless and unpredictable Russian ruler, who shocks even Ivar with his merciless actions.

The show has picked up 32 award wins and 92 nominations- including 13 Primetime Emmy Nominations- since its debut in 2013.
The show was originally conceived as a nine-part, scripted mini-series, but was renewed for additional seasons when it received an overwhelmingly-positive response.
