Vikings was a huge ratings hit for The History Channel this season, and even though Vikings has not even finished its inaugural run, the network has already renewed it for a 10-episode second season. According to the network, Vikings has been the #1 new cable series in 2013 in terms of viewership, averaging about five million viewers.

Dirk Hoogstra from the History Channel said of the program,

“Vikings is a win win for us. As our first scripted series, VIKINGS has paid off in a big way with critical acclaim, strong ratings and a passionate, loyal fan base. It came out of the gate strong and has stayed on top, solidifying HISTORY as a major player in the scripted genre, just as we are in reality. We could not be more proud of the entire cast and crew and everyone involved in the making of VIKINGS. Michael Hirst has captured audiences with his complex, compelling characters and brought the unknown, epic world of these warriors to life. Season Two will begin production this summer to air in 2014.”

If you’ve been listening to our podcast you know that Randy loves this show. He even wore his Viking hat a couple of episodes ago for the live stream.

Vikings stars Travis Fimmel, Gabriel Byrne, Katheryn Winnick, Jessalyn Gilsig, George Blagden, Clive Standen and Gustaf Skarsgard. The series airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on History.
