Is Norsemen season 4 coming? Has the show got renewal for another season? Here’s everything we know about the fourth season of the series.
The fourth season of the series is unfortunately will not be released. Netflix has decided to end Norwegian comedy shows after three seasons. The comedy series created by Jonas Torgersen and Jon Iver Helgaker did not get a renewal. The show, called Vikingane in Norwegian; was about a group of Vikings and their daily shenanigans.
Why is Norsemen season 4 cancelled?
The last season of Norsemen was released back in July 2020. It also managed to stay in the top ten charts of Netflix UK for a couple of days. Though it could not reach the same chart in Netflix US. The official Twitter account of the show announced the bad news for the fans of the series.
That's how sad you get when you learn that there will not be a season 4 on Netflix.
We hope to find other ways to bring you more Norsemen in the future, but for now enjoy the first three seasons.
It has been a blast for all of us, thanks for watching ❤️ pic.twitter.com/kIwZOsB5pK

The way the show displayed the brutal warriors unlike any other was quite interesting. It was also one of the most successful Netflix Originals coming from Norway, besides Ragnarok of course. Which, unlike Norsemen, it is going to get another season. It already has a release date in addition to a teaser.

How many episodes does Norsemen have?
Norsemen have three seasons and every season has six episodes, summing up to a total of 18 episodes full of Viking-style comedy.
The episodes were shot twice in two languages, English and Norwegian. Because Norsemen initially premiered on NRK1. Netflix picked up English episodes of the show and added them to its library in August 2017. The second season of the show came in 2018 and the final season of the series was released last September. Norsemen season 3 took the viewers to a timeline before season 1. It also showed the events that led up to the first season of the series.
It might be nice to re-watch the whole series as comedies like these just never get old. You can also have a look at the new shows and movies coming soon to Netflix.
