History’s “Vikings” is returning for a sixth and final season this winter, and the network released a first look trailer showcasing the new episodes. The final season starts with a two-hour premiere on December 4th, and there will be twenty episodes in Season 6. Last season, the show reached 25.2M total viewers in Live+7 delivery and was the network’s top drama series.

According to the network, the sixth season will air in two parts, starting with the two-hour premiere and followed by eight episodes airing every Wednesday. The remaining ten episodes of season six are slated to air in 2020. History also announced that series regular Katheryn Winnick is set to helm one episode in season six, marking her directorial debut.

“I always knew how ‘Vikings’ would end and, after 89 episodes, I truly believe the saga of Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons has been told and we are leaving our beloved fans with the proper and definitive ending they so deserve,” said Michael Hirst, creator, writer and executive producer. “Although it is bittersweet there are still 20 episodes left and the most ambitious and intensely emotional episodes are still to come.”

Season six returns following the battle between brothers which has left Bjorn victorious and a hero to the people who have been under the tyrannical rule of Ivar for so long. As the new leader of Kattegat, Bjorn struggles to fill his late father’s shoes as king, while facing several dilemmas and wrestling with the idea that power overshadows morals. Meanwhile, Ivar, searching for a new path to separate him from his past, is seen traveling along The Silk Road eventually leading him to Russia. He meets his match in Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky), a ruthless and unpredictable Russian ruler, who shocks even Ivar with his merciless actions. While Lagertha has her own agenda – to live a quieter and less public life on her own farm, but new dangers lurk close to home. This season, the Vikings continue to take over Scandinavia as Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) travel to Iceland to uncover the mystery circling around Floki’s (Gustaf Skarsgård) disappearance and Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) pursues his personal vendetta against Ivar.
