You can’t call it a poor man’s Game of Thrones any more. After garnering strong ratings and solid critical reactions, History has renewed its hit dramatic series Vikings for a third season, according to Collider. Like the first two, this third season will run for 10 episodes and will premiere in 2015.
Vikings has put History at the #1 spot in cable in its Thursday 10-11 p.m. time slot, with an average of 3.4 million viewers per episode. Take a look at what History’s EVP and General Manager Dirk Hoogstra had to say about the renewal:
We are incredibly fortunate to have such an enormously talented cast and crew led by Michael Hirst whose intricately woven storylines vividly brings the unknown, epic world of these Norsemen to life. Season three promises to immerse viewers even deeper into the exploits of these fearless warriors who are willing to risk it all for conquest and power.
The series is currently in the middle of its second season, with the finale set to air on May 1.
