Vikings gained inspiration from Ragnar Lothbrok’s sagas, including his battles with fellow rulers and the trials and tribulations of his crew’s raiding in the Viking age. Like other series set in worlds much more vast and theatrical than ours (ahem, Game of Thrones), Vikings boasts an extensive and multi-faceted cast of captivating characters.

If you’re in the market for a raucous round of mythical adventure mixed with a touch of historical flair, Vikings begs to raid your Amazon Prime Video queue. With four seasons and a fifth soon joining the ship, you’ll be set for a non-stop Norse escapade.
