What to Watch on the History Channel?

The History Channel’s original programming focused on documentaries based on historical events as well as fictional history series. But with time, the dynamics of the channel’s programming changed. And, now the History channel also airs reality TV programs that revolve around mainstream topics, such as human-extraterrestrial contact, historical artifacts, and non-fiction content like The UnXplained series.

The History Channel has been around since 1995, but its first-ever original series was Vikings, a historical drama based on legendary Viking, Ragnar Lothbrok. The TV show was originally released in 2013 and ran for a good six seasons. The sixth season wrapped up the story on December 30, 2020.
