The inspiration of this Tv history drama series was by Norsemen stories from Scandinavia in the dark ages. Vikings base its storyline on Ragnar Lothbrok a famous Norse hero but were known to cause trouble and suffering to people in his territory.
In the start of the series, Lothbrok was an ordinary farmer who goes to the helm of leadership (King of Scandinavia) by attacking England. This was achievable due to his immense support from fellow Scandinavia warriors and his family.
The series plot mostly bases on Ragnar’s son’s adventure in other regions like Mediterranean, North America, England, Russia, and Scandinavia.

Reason Why There Will be No Vikings Season 7
I know you might be asking yourself why will be there no season seven? You are not alone, but I’m also wondering why the series is ending.
But as per my research, many Vikings fans consider its ending due to the Vikings leader Ragnar Lothbrok. This took place in the fourth season, but since then the series ratings declined drastically.
But in my opinion, the Tv series shouldn’t end in such a manner. It has left me and you in a limbo. But let’s wait for its sequel Valhalla which is in the making. I hope it will be as enticing as Vikings.
Why Some Critics Cite Inaccuracies in the Tv Series
Yes! This is true some Viking’s critics have expressed some historical inaccuracies. As per Lars Walker on The American Spectator, he said that Earl Haraldson’s leadership was made to be autocratic, but its history states that Earl’s government was democratic.
Lars was not the only one to criticise Viking’s storyline, but many others have raised issues with the Tv series.
For sure Vikings has been one of the best historical drama and action-adventure Tv series. Unfortunately, season six is the final season, and we will have to wait for its sequel Valhalla. Until official release date of Valhalla adios.
