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.
History’s Vikings is no stranger to shakeups of the status quo, dispatching main characters and jumping through time as befits a historical saga. Still, last night’s “All His Angels” wrought one of, if not the most shocking death of the series, even as stars and producers explain they’d originally sought to depict it in Season 1.
History’s Vikings has grown popular enough to air the length of two full seasons for most dramas each year, and late November will see the decade-spanning warrior drama returning to Season 4. History has officially set a Season 4 return date on a new night and time of the week, along with a fresh synopsis.
We saw a first look ahead of Comic-Con 2016, but winds of change really are blowing into History’s Vikings for the second half of Season 4. Ragnar Lothbrok is back to lead his grown-up sons into war, and everything seems to be changing in the full trailer for Vikings' fall return.
History’s Vikings are never at a loss for time jumps, and the second half of Season 4 will prove the most far-flung yet with an elder Ragnar returning to guide his now grown-up sons. As is that hectic production schedule, new footage has already arrived ahead of the full Comic-Con 2016 panel next week.
Let’s take a break from Batman and Superman for another epic battle — the Alliance vs. the Horde, aka Warcraft. The international trailer for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit MMORPG has arrived, bringing lots of new footage as the two factions prepare for all-out war, and two races unite to protect their future. Orcs and humans fighting together, mass hysteria, etc.
In the midst of our excitement for all the new superhero movies hitting theaters this year, it’s easy to forget another major blockbuster: Warcraft. The latest TV spot for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit game is action-packed and features some new footage, and while we’re still a bit skeptical of how successfully the series will translate to the big screen, one thing is for certain: at least it looks interesting.
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.
