Ragnar may be drinking ale from curved horns in the halls of Valhalla, but Vikings star Travis Fimmel has plenty more work ahead. The former king will star, write and produce in a new History anthology series exploring the anti-heroes of history, beginning with Wyatt Earp.
Considering History opted to expand Vikings Season 4 to an impressive 20 episodes, it’s no surprise the historical drama will raid for a fifth season. This time around, Ragnar Lothbrok will have company, as Jonathan Rhys Myers joins the cast as well.
February will see History’s Vikings going bigger than ever with an extended Season 4, and the latest looks well showcase why. Full photos from the first four episodes have arrived, along with an action-packed new trailer, but what else is there to tease but “Bjorn vs. the Bear”?
As if essentially doubling the Season 4 order weren’t enough to sell the scope of Vikings Season 4, the new trailer should do nicely. History has released a new two-minute sneak peek of the expansive 2016 season, chock full of betrayal, shattering swords and splintered shields.
History’s Vikings had plundered bounty enough when Season 4 was announced to reach 16 episodes, up from the prior 10, and now Ragnar Lothbrok has gone mad with power. Not only has Season 4 been upped to a full 20 episodes, but so too do we have our February premiere.
History’s Vikings famously ditches the classic helmet imagery, but did you know the concept of filthy, horned raiders was historically inaccurate anyway? Or that the Travis Fimmel series pays homage to classic Norse myth in its titles? Sharpen your axes and fill your flagons, and let the 24th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ take you along with Ragnar Lothbrok for a raiding party on History’s Vikings!
History’s Vikings might not make their next raid until early 2016, but Ragnar Lothbrok and his ever-bloodier brood always manage to bring fresh footage to Comic-Con. The first formal trailer for 2016's return shows that King Ragnar isn’t done with Paris just yet, while women seek to rule and brotherhoods are tested, and there’s even a bear!
Consistently excellent, though perhaps underwritten about, History’s Vikings show no signs of slowing down through 2015 or 2016. The historical fantasy (ish) drama has officially been renewed for another raid in Season 4, continuing the tale of warrior-philosopher-king Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel).
History’s ‘Vikings’ will mount their biggest offensive yet when season 3's February 19 debut sees Ragnar setting his sights on the city of Paris itself, and thankfully the historical drama has a full trailer and photo set to match its scale. Charge into battle with our longest look yet at the new season of ‘Vikings,’ and see who sheds the most blood!
Ragnar Lothbork and the ‘Vikings’ brood covered quite a bit of ground (and sea) in its 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.
