Skoal! History Renews Vikings for Season 3
Puny Englishmen, don't get too comfortable. History has renewed its original drama Vikings for a third season, with a 10-episode order and a target date of 2015. By that time, Ragnar's son Bjorn might be 30-feet tall and as wide as a barn. That kid grew into a man and a half during the show's recent four-year time jump!
This renewal is as surprising as an English priest wetting himself in the face of a Viking attack, as Vikings has proven to be a hit for History. The show is consistently at the top of the cable charts on Thursday nights, averaging 3.4 million viewers per episode so far in its second season.
History would also like you to know that Vikings Season 2 finale is scheduled for Thursday, May 1 and that there are six more episodes left in the season. It's not too late to catch up if you haven't yet checked out the show, and if you need some reasons why you should, I got them right here! A lot of people have asked me what I think of Season 2 so far, and after a soapy start, it seems to have gotten back to what made it so much fun in Season 1. Hmm, maybe I should start reviewing the show weekly...
