Vikings, a genre-defying television series, premiered on the History channel in March 2013. The series was inspired by the sagas of Ragnar Lodbrok, a semi-mythical Norse hero regarded as the scourge of Anglo-Saxon England and West Francia. The attractiveness of television series based on diverse stories is well-known in the film business, and Vikings’ six-season tales of the early medieval Scandinavian Norsemen raised this excitement to a new level. However, the historical drama Vikings ended after its sixth season. But its spin-off, Vikings: Valhalla, was released on Netflix for a wider audience and was a huge success.
