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.
The world of movie-TV reboots accommodates a great many approaches these days, not the least curious of which will see Liam Neeson’s Taken character Bryan Mills returned to his formative years, yet still in the modern day. We now know which actor will develop his particular set of skills as well, setting Vikings star Clive Standen as our new Taken man.
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.
The Walking Dead may pack conventions just as well as the world of Westeros, but there’s no denying Game of Thrones as the biggest show in the world right now. Case in point, HBO’s epic adaptation has snagged a fourth year as TV’s most pirated series, while newcomers like Supergirl also eke their way onto the list.
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!
Well hello there, TV super-fan! Did you know that Breaking Bad breakout Jesse Pinkman was almost killed off in Season 1? How about that Joss Whedon hated the original Buffy theme song, or Curb Your Enthusiasm served as a murder alibi? Can you imagine LOST starring Michael Keaton? Why yes, we do have more where that came from!
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).
