History's 'Vikings' had gone into intermission with season five's episode 10 titled 'Moments of Vision' and is now returning with episode 11, titled 'The Revelation' on November 28. According to the Metro.UK, the showrunners decided to split season five into two parts of 10 episodes each. Part one of season five has already been aired with 10 episodes and the next installment of the series with another 10 episodes is set to air at the end of November.

The second part of season five will have a new entrant, Danila Kozlovsky, a Russian actor. Kozlovsky will be playing the character of Oleg, the prophet known as Oleg Novgorod, a 10th century Varangian Prince who ruled the Rus' people. Kozlovsky has previously played this kind of era-specific character as one of Oleg's successors, Vladimir The Great, in the 2016 movie 'Viking'. He was also seen starring in multiple Russian movies like 'Spy', 'Soulless' and 'Legend No. 17'. 

After the completion of season five, the series will return for season six, reported Digitalspy. However, not much is known about the following season, but it too will have 20 episodes like its predecessor and will be shot in Ireland as reported by Metro.UK.

Its showrunner, Michael Hirst, in an interview with Metro.UK, said: "It has been my pleasure and my privilege to work with History and our partner MGM over five seasons and 69 episodes of Vikings." He added that season six "will deliver a huge and unexpected revelation to our audience."

We will have to wait for the sixth season for the big revelation, but right now we get to watch part two of season five which releases November 28 in the United States and will be available on Amazon Prime Videos on November 29 and thereafter, with one episode every week being released. The final episode of the season five is scheduled to air January 30, 2019.
