Do you want to know whether the rumors about the ‘Norsemen Season 4 Cancelled’ are true or not? Have you been waiting for the Norsemen Season 4 Release Date? If yes, then continue reading this blog post, as it has all the answers you are seeking.

Netflix has become a major source of entertainment for millions of people across the globe. The shows released on this streaming platform have various elements. They are quite different from the regular shows telecasted on cable TV. Some shows released on Netflix are the same as broadcasted on television channels.

But the difference is that these shows are picked by Netflix because of their uniqueness and brilliance. Several such shows keep coming from time to time. One of these brilliant shows is ‘Norsemen’, which is a Norwegian comedy television series. Norsemen is a series that won the hearts of audiences, as it covered the theme involving ‘Vikings’ in the comedy genre. Usually, movies and shows with the Vikings theme are serious or controversial in nature.

Therefore, watching Norsemen is like breathing fresh air. If you have never heard of the term ‘Vikings’ before, let us give you a little bit of background. The term ‘Vikings’ is used to refer to seafaring warriors who were Scandinavian. In other words, these warriors belonged to Scandinavia, the region which comprises present-day Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Citizens or inhabitants of this region are called Scandinavian.

Norsemen Season 4 Cancelled: What Was So Different About Norsemen?

Who would not like to see how Vikings used to live their lives? People often turn to Netflix to get a little dose of comedy. If a story based on the seafaring warriors, who are known for their aggression and brutality, is shown with comic punches, people would love to watch it.

Hence, the news about the Norsemen season 4 cancelled has left many people disappointed. The Norsemen series touches the theme of Vikings in an unusual way that makes the viewers stay glued to their screens. Until now, three seasons of the series have been released. The third and the last season which is named ‘Season 0’ concluded on March 13, 2020. The fans loved all three seasons, and thus, they were waiting impatiently for the fourth season.

Norsemen Season 4 Cancelled: Know Why It Happened?

As you must have understood by now, the rumors that season 4 of the Norsemen series is cancelled are true. The makers and the Netflix streaming platform are not going to renew the series for the fourth season. The show has been cancelled by NRK1, which is the main television channel of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.

NRK1 is the channel on which the show Norsemen premiered in the month of October 2016. Since Vikings have a close association with the country of Norway, the idea of a comedy show based on Vikings was pitched to a Norwegian channel. The communities of modern Vikings exist today in Norway and some other parts of the world. Hence, viewers from this country can relate to the theme of the show. Norsemen was telecasted under the name ‘Vikingane’. It was produced for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation by Viafilm.

The news about the Norsemen Season 4 cancelled came as a shock to not just Norwegian audiences but also global audiences, as the series was streaming on Netflix as well. The series made its debut on Netflix in the month of August 2017 under the name ‘Norsemen’.

The term ‘Norsemen’ has multiple meanings. It is used as another name for a Viking as well as to refer to a citizen or inhabitant of the country of Norway. It is also used to refer to a citizen or inhabitant of medieval Scandinavia or areas colonized by Scandinavians during the Viking period.

Jon Iver Helgaker and Jonas Torgersen, who have co-written and co-directed Norsemen thought that it would be a great idea to bring the show to the audience worldwide when they realized that the audience would find the English accent of Norwegian actors quite funny. Their prediction indeed became true. Not just the accent but also the acting and mannerisms of the cast of the series entertained the viewers a lot. Every scene was filmed twice and the show was recorded in both Norwegian and English language.

As of now, Netflix has just made an announcement through the official Facebook and Twitter accounts of Norsemen that the 4th season of the series will not be made. The web streaming platform does not intend to pick up the fourth season by itself.

Therefore, some fans are still hoping that NRK and Netflix will change their decision. They have kept their fingers crossed. If you too are one of them, you must stay hopeful. Until any further announcement is made, you can enjoy seasons one, two, and three of the Norsemen series.

Many people are willing to learn more about the Norsemen Season 4 cancelled rumors to find out why this Vikings-based show is so popular and successful. If you are one of them, you can watch one or more episodes to check if the show suits your taste or not. You must have a premium subscription to Netflix to watch Norsemen. In order to decide properly whether you should watch the show or not, you can first watch its trailers on YouTube.

Norsemen: Theme, Characters, Actors, and Much More

The reason why Norsemen does not include crazy action sequences or over-the-top drama is that it has been made as a parody of Viking culture. As mentioned earlier in this blog post, Vikings were seafaring warriors. They lasted from the late eighth century to the early eleventh century. They colonized several areas of the European continent. They used to travel to faraway places that were discovered until then. Most Vikings were traders, farmers, craftsmen, and fishermen.

But they used to also engage in activities like pillaging and human trafficking. They used to capture and enslave young men and women while pillaging. Vikings used to practice many unfair ways to live and earn. They used to follow their own laws. They had their own art and architecture.

The storyline of the Norsemen series includes a group of Vikings living in a village named Norheim. Various interesting characters are a part of the series. The episodes cover the activities of the daily life of the Vikings living in the village. Different rival tribes of Vikings are shown entering into conflict with each other. The conversations and arguments taking place between the characters are humorous. Numerous adult jokes are also a part of the comedy.

Norsemen Season 4 cancelled became news of interest for viewers because the way Vikings were depicted in the show was liked by everyone. Even though the series has some violent sequences and sexual innuendo, fans love it a lot. The jokes in the script and the comic timing of the characters have made Norsemen worth binge-watching. It’s worth mentioning here that the show has a 15+ rating in terms of the age group of the intended audience. Parents should make sure that their children aged below 15 years do not watch this show.

Jon Oigarden, Mikkel Bratt Silset, Kristine Riis, Marian Saastad Ottesen, Silje Torp, Christian Skolmen, Nikis Theophilakis, Erik Aleksander Schjerven, Andre Eriksen, Trond Halbo, and Egil Birkeland are some of the actors who are present in the cast of the show. Every season of the Norsemen series includes six episodes. So, there are eighteen episodes combined in all three seasons of the show. Norsemen was ranked among the top ten shows on Netflix in the United Kingdom for three days.

Along with a high rank, the comedy Vikings series also received amazing reviews and ratings. Norsemen enjoys a rating of 7.7 out of 10 on IMDB. Both viewers and critics posted positive reviews for the series on various platforms.

As you already know the first season aired on Netflix in August 2017. The second and the third seasons aired in October 2018 and February 2020. We have also mentioned in this blog post that season 3 is named ‘Season 0’. The reason behind the same is that the third season includes the backstories of the characters. It includes events that lead up to the first season of the show.

We know that it seems a bit unusual that the backstory is shown in the third season and not the first season. This fact is as surprising as the fact that the Norsemen Season 4 cancelled news is true. Another amusing fact related to this series is that it is the first major show of the creators. Despite being a low-budget series and an underrated series in the beginning, Norsemen became an instant hit with the audience. After the success of this series, the creators went on to make another show for Netflix.

But the makers decided to do so, as while writing the story for season three, they kept thinking about the past of the characters. They wanted to follow the events that occurred in the second season, but they also wanted to show why characters behaved in the way they did in the first season.

Therefore, they eventually decided to create the third season as a prequel to the first season. As far as the renewal of the Norsemen series is concerned, you can wait to see if any good news arrives or not. If Netflix decided to renew the show, the fourth season might get released in the year 2023. The new season might include new characters, cast members, and plot twists.
