‘Vikings’ Renewed for Season 2

Ragnar Lothbrok and his merry band of Viking barbarians will raise a goblet of mead to Odin at the news that the History Channel’s historical adventure series has been renewed for a second season.

Octagon Films’ Morgan O’Sullivan and James Flynn spearheaded the series - which is written and created by The Tudors’ Michael Hirst – to great success in the US, where its premiere achieved 8.3 million viewers, achieving the number one new cable series launch of the year.


Filmed in Ashford film studios in Wicklow over 18 weeks last summer, Vikings is an Irish-Canadian co-production between Octagon Films, Take 5 Productions and World 2000 Entertainment.
