    Season two has been even better than season one. Glad it got picked up. The question now becomes, who will live to season a 3rd season.

      Just a few more hours until we know. I think most of our favorites will be back to fight another day. I love this show and will miss it over the Summer and Fall, I will be watching Orphan Black and other BBC america shows to fill the void. : ) I love the History channel and will always look for interesting shows to watch there.

    Soon or later this show is gonna go through a huge rating surge like The Walking Dead or GOT had. It is gonna be the next huge cable show

    • I think it’s gonna be one of those shows that every season just keeps getting more and more viewers.

      I’m glad this season it’s doing better on his own, it’s been awesome so far.

        I agree….i could easily see this show going the way of the recent shows which gain popularity (viewers) hand over fist as the seasons go on until they end up with 10-15mil.

  13. Beverly says:

    I was hooked from episode 1 season 1. Love the show the writing the acting. I even researched the history,very interesting. My favorites are Athelstan, Borgorn(sp) and now king Eckbert! So glad there will a season three! Love the History channel!

    It’s my antidote to Reign’s teen idol silliness!

  16. nicholas says:

    can’t believe I’am saying this but not a big fan of the Ragnars character he just seems to sentimental and doesn’t really reflect the true nature of Vikings out of all the characters I like Rollo the best to me he fits the Viking role/persona the best

  17. 2015!!!!???!!! I don’t think I can wait that long. This series is intense. If you have studied Beowulf and enjoyed it, you will love this series. Intensely written, beautifully and realistically portrayed. So grateful I caught season one. I have heart so I can love you.

  18. yay Ive missed them, hurry up; bring the show back!

  19. Gloria says:

    Really happy this will be returned. Best show on TV!

  20. Nancy Trombley says:

  25. Annette says:

    Vikings .Can you tell me when in 2015 it will be on because I can’t wait I am a big fan x

  26. catherine says:

    Great shows never die. Vikings is great, awesome show. It is not just historical in theme, but also intellectual where the interaction of characters, the raw emotions and the conflict among them bring a universal trait of human behavior that is as old as paleolithic age.

  27. Denise Roberts says:

    This is the most awesome show. I kept checking when it was gonna come on again, and found out that it was gonna be a long time before they would show it again. I was kinda mad on the time frame cause I didn’t want to wait. Was counting down the days for months waiting, and now it’s back, AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
