Vikings Season 6 Development and Writing
The last season of Vikings was started and produced by TM Productions and Take 5 group as a joint Irish-Canadian journey and was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Executive producers include Michael Hirst, Alan Gasmer, Sheila Hockin, Sherry Marsh, James Flynn, and John Weber. This season, Liz Gill produced the remaining nine episodes, while Keith Thompson had the first eleven, and they are co-producers along with Bill Goddard and Séamus McInerney.
The writer and author, Michael Hirst, claims that the role Vikings played in Russian History inspired him to scrutinize Oleg the Prophet: “I didn’t realize that Russia is named Russia because the Rus Vikings created it. I gained a lot of knowledge about myself, as I always do when we travel and found lost languages and new cultures. […] I had been reading books about the Silk Road and the Rus Vikings when I came across the prophecy of Prince Oleg. He was Russia’s spectacular leader and everything kind of made sense. It looked to be the clearest. Because we have been traveling so much in the west, it is one of the most exciting things to do.
Vikings Season 6 Filming
The sites used for filming were County Wicklow, Ireland, and Vik, Norway, which were placed as a stand-in for the homes of the Rus Vikings of Kyiv. This season takes place in regions that correlate to contemporary Ukraine and Norway. Outside of Dublin, specific sequences were also recorded at locations that were placed as stand-ins for the Icelandic shore, together with Nuns Beach at Ballybunion in County Kerry, the River Boyne in County Meath, the Blessington Lakes and Powerscourt Waterfall, and the Powerscourt Estate. Lough Tay was used for filming Kattegat-related scenes (County Wicklow). The scenes requiring green screens for CGI were once again shot at Ashford Studios (County Wicklow), which is placed as the production’s hub.
