When he recently spoke to The Express, Hirst said that he believed that there probably will be a spin-off created. “I think there may well be spin-off Viking show but that’s being discussed at the moment. But what it will be like, I don’t know.”

It’s possible that The History Channel might follow what HBO is doing with the Game of Thrones spin-offs, by releasing them after the main show has finished. Should this be true, we could be waiting years for the Vikings spin-off, especially because there is a big possibility that the show will be renewed for s seventh season.

Years ago there was speculation that there was a spin-off in development called Valhalla, but Hirst confirmed that the idea was a joke, getting at the amount of characters he has killed off in Vikings.  “That was a joke because someone said, ‘Look, you’ve killed off all these amazing characters, wouldn’t it be fun to be able to have a spin-off called Valhalla in which they all got together again and sang songs?’

Vikings is in the midseason break of its fifth season and going strong with the drama scoring a 20-episode season six renewal, which will air in 2019. Despite the loss of fan-favorite protagonist Ragnar Lothbrok in season 4B, the show is growing a bigger fanbase, with Ragnar’s sons doing a fantastic job at making the show as gripping as ever.
