Martin Maloney, Gary Keane, Luke McQuillan, Emma Eliza-Regan, Michael Judd, Alicia Gerrard, and Charlie Kranz cast in the sixth season of HISTORY'S VIKINGS which continues to film in Ashford Studio, Ashfird, Co. Wicklow until end of April..
Season six will consist of 20 episodes and is filmed in Ashford Studio in Co. Wicklow, Ireland.
The plot of season six depends on what happens in the second half of the fifth run.
However, Vikings creator and executive producer Michael Hirst said of the new season: “The vikings are going ever outwards as raiders and traders.”
He continued to Nerdist: “In season six they’re in the Silk Road. They’re trading with the Russians, going to China, they’re all around the Mediterranean. And it’s actually what happened.”
Hirst previously said amid the recommission: "It has been my pleasure and my privilege to work with HISTORY and our partner MGM over five seasons and 69 episodes of Vikings.
“Now we are ready to begin production of a 20 episode season six that will deliver a huge and unexpected revelation to our audience.”
His words suggest that season six could bring about a huge plot twist that could change the course of the show.
Hirst told Express.co.uk about the plot of Vikings season 6: "We go on the Silk Road. Each Viking warship had an Odin banner and they’ve only every found a piece of one of those banners, and a little bit of fabric from one, but it was silk.
“So we know the Vikings were on the Silk Road. We don’t know if they got to China but we know they were trading because they were traders as well as fighters.”
