With 'Game of Thrones' only satisfying us for ten weeks out of the year, and 'Spartacus' deciding to end the series altogether after the next season, fans of sword-swinging genre TV might find themselves a little starved for fresh blood. We've been carefully following the development of The History Channel's original series 'Vikings,' and now we've learned who'll play our hero, Ragnar Lothbrok! Who else has joined the cast to plunder and pillage?
Since last week was so jam packed with upfronts announcing every new and returning show, unending trailers and press releases, this week has seen a bit of movement on the other networks gaining traction with their own original programming. We'd heard a bit about The History Channel's upcoming 'Vikings' epic before, but now the network gives us 'Treatment' to their first major casting!
