History Channel president and general manager Nancy Dubuc described the project as “an amazing crossroads for History embarking on our first scripted series.”
“People think they know about the Vikings -- we see references to them all the time in our popular culture from TV commercials to football teams -- but the reality is so much more fascinating and complex, more vivid, visceral and powerful than popular legend.”
She added: "We will explore the mysteries of the Vikings, the adventures they took and the people who led them. And we will start to understand a past that is very much part of our collective DNA today."
The new series will premiere on March 3 on the History Channel.
