Ragnar Lothbork and the ‘Vikings’ brood covered quite a bit of ground (and sea) in their first two seasons, but History will pillage onward as early as 2015. The network has officially set a season 3 premiere date for ‘Vikings,’ giving King Ragnar a time and place to reassemble the horde.

Set to premiere on Thursday, February 19, ‘Vikings’ season 3 also brought with it a fresh new description of the Norsemen (and women)’s third outing, this time taking aim at Paris itself:

The new 10-episode season begins with Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) as King and follows the great responsibility that now rests on the shoulders of the former farmer.

With the promise of new land from the English, Ragnar leads his people to an uncertain fate on the shores of Wessex. King Ecbert (Linus Roache) has made many promises and it remains to be seen if he will keep them. But ever the restless wanderer, Ragnar is searching for something more … and he finds it in the mythical city of Paris. Rumored to be impenetrable to outside forces, Ragnar and his band of Norsemen must come together to break down its walls and cement the Vikings legend in history.

New additions for the season include Ben Robson as Lagertha’s young, calculating second-in-command, ‘The Strain’ and ‘LOST’ star Kevin Durand as Harbard, a prophesied wanderer with a profound effect on Queen Aslaug, Siggy and Helga. Also joining the ‘Vikings’ cast in a more historical capacity will be Lothaire Bluteau as Emperor Charles of France, and Morgane Polanski (yup, daughter of Roman) as Charles’ daughter Princess Gisla.

Hopefully we’ll see an actual trailer before long, but in the meantime, what say you? Are your axes at the ready for ‘Vikings’ season 3 in February 2015?
