History dropped the trailer and announced the release date for the sixth and final season of Vikings. We’ve got the details!

Per a report from Deadline, History’s sixth and final season of Vikings will premiere on December 4. The season will be split into two blocks of ten episodes. The second half of the season will air in early 2020. Episodes will air on Wednesdays at 10 PM EDT. A full trailer accompanied the premiere announcement. You can watch it here. There’s a lot of action-packed into those two minutes. The scale looks epic. And the story appears to pick up where season five ended.

Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) is the new ruler of Kattegat. He’s triumphed over a tyrannical rule, but Bjorn will get an idea of how power can alter the best of intentions. Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) is looking to reinvent himself. He teams up with Russian Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky), who somehow appears to be more bloodthirsty than Ivar.

He’ll also tangle with Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø). All of this creates tensions that ruin Lagertha’s (Katheryn Winnick) plans to live that good life in the country. And, Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) quest to Iceland to find out what really happened to Floki’s (Gustaf Skarsgård).

Vikings will play out all of these storylines and more over the twenty episode final season. So, nothing about the show’s resolutions should end up feeling rushed, which is a real trick for television series these days. We also hope that there’s not a lot of filler that drags out obvious plot lines that we can figure out weeks ahead of time. Bottom line: it’s Vikings. So, it’s going to look cool and have a ton of action. Vikings will keep us warm during the holiday season and hopefully rev us up for an action-packed final ten episodes in 2020.

Vikings season six premieres with back to back episodes starting at the special time of 9 PM EDT on Wednesday, December 4 exclusively on History.
