Vikings season six part two was expected to arrive on History and Prime Video in December 2020, as the previous seasons have all aired around this time. However an official trailer for the second half of season six is yet to emerge, and there has been no news of a release date. Fans are keen to find out whether the release of season six, part B has been delayed, and Express.co.uk looks at this.
Has Vikings season 6B been delayed?
Vikings is a popular historical drama series made for the History Channel, and fans across the world have been following the series on Prime Video.
The sixth season came to an end at the beginning of 2020, and fans found out the second half of season six would be the final batch of episodes, which will bring the story to an end.
During a 2020 Comic-Con event, some teasers were dropped which revealed Bjorn Ironside (played by Alexander Ludwig) was still alive following the blow he suffered during the Rus battle.
Fans also learned of the return of King Alfred (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) and they cannot wait to see the Saxons go head to head with the Danes in a final epic battle.
Viewers assumed season six part B would arrive in December 2020, as has been the case with previous seasons, but an official release date is yet to come to be confirmed as yet.
The IMDb page for the series, created by Michael Hirst, also says the second half of season six will be out in 2020, but an exact date has not been mentioned.
Express.co.uk has contacted the PR team for the series to find out whether the release date for the final batch of episodes has indeed been delayed.
They said they had “no information to share” on the release date or the prospect of a delay.
There is no knowing whether the coronavirus pandemic has taken its toll on production, but fans assumed most of the work on part B had already been completed.
Fans have taken to Reddit to discuss the prospect of the series finale being delayed, with Brett-Evans saying: “My biggest fear would be the delay of the 6B to 2021.
“We are so close to November and December and we still have nothing. Did they forgot us? Are they bad in marketing? I hope just it’s no for next year.”
Fans expected the release date to be announced in October 2020, as the release date for the first half of the season was announced around this time last year.
However, with November creeping up quickly, viewers are wondering why there has still been no news regarding a release date.
One fan said filming for the second half of the season was completed back in November 2018, so in theory, the final episodes should be complete and ready to drop.
Viewers are keen to see how the saga comes to an end, and they have high hopes for the final episodes, with RowellTheBlade saying: “For the first time since the end of season four, I’m really excited for the series: The whole civil war arc is over, and maybe, maybe, if Hirst didn’t simply improvise the ending, we’re now in the fifth act of the story that he has been working towards for a few years.
“Maybe we now see what he has left in store for the characters, or if he really didn’t plan beyond Ragnar going to Paris. Vikings will go down in history as one of the shows with the best cinematography of its time; if only we would get a satisfying story for the last couple of episodes.”

Some viewers have suspected the release date will be announced in November, so hopefully, an update will come to light in the next few weeks.
One fan said: “Hasn’t post-production for 6B been finished for nearly a year? I doubt anyone’s been working on the show for quite a while at this point, so they’re probably just waiting for November to keep release dates consistent.”
The final half of the season will be made up of 10 episodes, which will air weekly. The first half of season six arrived in December 2019, and came to an end in February 2020.
Hopefully the same will be said for the second half, meaning a release date should come to light in the first week of November.
In December 2019 Alex Høgh Andersen, who plays Ivar the Boneless in the series, spoke to Entertainment Tonight Canada about Ivar’s role in season six.
He said: “In the beginning of this whole journey he is struggling a bit…these Russian guys are crazy. He actually kind of realises and experiences when he gets there.
“It’s like he’s looking at Prince Oleg being, maybe some would say, a tad more crazy than he ever was. So he’s looking at this and he sees the reflection of himself and he’s like, ‘Was I that crazy?’ I think he really needed that.”
Hirst has suggested Ivar finds his path to redemption in the final episodes, so fans are expecting him to turn away from Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky).
Fans were sad to hear there will not be season seven of Vikings, so they are expecting big things from the final episodes, and they hope the story has a satisfying ending.
However there is a chance they may have to wait until 2021 as the end of the year will soon be upon us, and there is still no sign of a release date.
