Jeb Stuart, one of the show’s creators and executive producer, shared a statement about ending the series with the hope of satisfying fans.

“I hope that when audiences watch the new season, they will be thrilled with all the new heights we are taking these heroes to. When we began this project 5 years ago, I worked hard with this incredible cast and crew to create a journey that we all hoped would be fulfilling.”
Stuart continued: “Of course with real historical figures, there are always more aspects of their lives that could be explored, but it made sense from a story perspective that our journeys of Leif, Freydis and Harald would end with our third season. And we can’t wait for fans to see the conclusion of this chapter of the story.”
