• The remaining episodes of 'Vikings' Season 6 will be released on Amazon Prime Video first
  • The Alexander Ludwig and Alex Hogh Andersen-starrer sixth season will serve as a finale
  • The final episodes will hit History Channel at a later date in 2021

"Vikings" Season 6 is returning with its final episodes in December. The remaining 10 episodes of the final season will air first on Amazon before hitting its home network, History channel.

Michael Hirst's historical drama inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok aired the first part of its 20-episode sixth season in December 2019. Before the show returns to History, all "Vikings" Season 6 episodes, including the remaining 10 episodes, will be released on Prime Video on Dec. 30, 2020. It will be available for Prime members in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany and Austria.

The episodes will start airing on History at a later date, sometime in 2021.

"Prime Video has already delighted Prime members with all five and a half seasons of 'Vikings'," said Brad Beale, vice president of worldwide content licensing at Amazon, in a statement Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "On Dec. 30, Prime members in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria, and Ireland will be the first to learn the fates of the beloved characters as the epic drama concludes in the final 10 episodes."

The first half of the "Vikings" Season 6 concluded in February 2020. The show wrapped up with a highly-anticipated battle between The Rus and Vikings. Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) fought with King Harald (Peter Franzen) against his brother Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) and Rus' (Danila Kozlovsky) army. The midseason finale titled "The Best Laid Plans" ended with Ivar stabbing Bjorn and The Rus' celebrating his victory.

"Our monumental Vikings saga is coming to its conclusion, but not before you've had to chance to watch some of my all-time favorite episodes," Hirst said about the series finale. "Prime Video will uniquely expose the series finale to a streaming audience first. Prepare to be astonished, and for many surprises along the way. And if you have tears to shed, then also be prepared to shed them."

"Vikings" will be the last scripted series on History channel. However, Hirst will continue to explore the sagas about Norse warriors even after the conclusion of the series. Originally planned for History channel, Hirst will introduce "Vikings" sequel spinoff from MGM Television, titled "Vikings: Valhalla," on Netflix.

According to Variety, the sequel is set 100 years after the conclusion of "Vikings" Season 6. In addition, the series creator is working on another drama, which is set in London during the bubonic plague in 1665.
