The producers behind The Tudors and Camelot look set to shoot another historical fiction in Ireland called Vikings.

The TV series is expected to have a budget of about €28m. It will follow the exploits of the Viking warriors from the late 8th to mid-11th Century. Filming is likely to begin in Ireland next year.

A follow-up to the first series of Camelot, which was shot last year, is also likely to be filmed in Ireland.

"Camelot II may be shot here either later this year or next year if green-lit," said James Flynn, a producer with Octagon Films. Camelot tells the story of King Arthur and stars Eva Green.
