9 Shows About Vikings to Watch Now

Vikings—a sort of catch-all term for brave and often brutal seafaring warriors from Scandinavia who settled throughout parts of Europe. Although they were a disruptive influence that affected European history, there’s something about their will and determination that captures our imaginations (or maybe the fact that the main characters in Viking shows are always good-looking). Because we can’t exactly time travel back to the 9th century, what better way to immerse yourself in the notorious legends than with a show dedicated to the fearsome warriors.

Similar to the popular Western genre, fictional trials and tribulations can be an easy escape from modern-day life. When History Channel surprised history buffs and action lovers with the premiere of Vikings in 2013, it was clear viewers love a good historical drama that takes a deep dive into revenge, drama, and chaos rather than romance and politeness. When the network’s first-ever scripted series ended, that opened the door for action-filled shows like Game of Thrones and The Last Kingdom.

Even if you can’t pinpoint the intrigue with Vikings, it’s safe to say that this list of shows about the formidable warriors who are willing to put their life on the line for victory has something for everyone. From historically accurate accounts to fantasy-based plots, there’s enough Viking to go around when it’s time to choose a new show to binge. There’s even an animated option for kids who want a slice of the charismatic Viking spirit!
