The Vikings Season 4 midseason premiere seems delayed. It would seem pushed back if we pegged it to be on July 7, 2016. Various reports came in that it will premiere on this date so there?s not a fault in believing that. They too seem well-founded as the usually reliable IMDb (Internet Movie Database) site had it on that date. But as we near that date, there is no official announcement or confirmation by History Channel.
In fact, ?an official tweet hints that Vikings Season 4 midseason premiere will be later this year.
Even the official trailer does not include July 7, 2016. It just says there that it will be returning this fall.
A report by Inquisitr pointed out that anyone can be a contributor to IMDb. While this is being checked by a Database Content Team for veracity, it is quite doubtful in the case of History?s Vikings.
The official Facebook account of Vikings does not confirm this date as well. The account manager or managers simply state, like on Twitter, that Vikings Season 4 midseason premiere will be later this year.
It seems at this rate that there was no official announcement that the Vikings Season 4 midseason premiere will happen July 7. All reliable (official) statements points toward a later release. Some fans speculate that it will be announced after the new documentary series on History Channel, Barbarians Rising. The show seems to be something that Vikings fans would love, too. It makes sense to push the second part of the Vikings Season 4 later so to not split the ratings.
In fact, the official Vikings twitter account looks to support the new documentary series.

So, it?s not really worth getting upset over a ?delay? here. Vikings Season 4 midseason premiere will come. For now, let?s enjoy Barbarians Rising.
