You’d be forgiven to lose track of History’s Vikings, what with their expansive orders airing in multiple parts each year. Season 5 will kick off this November, while History now confirms a 20-episode order for Season 6, and a familiar face behind the camera.
For a story constantly jumping through time and blowing up its premise, Vikings only seems to get bigger. The sons of Ragnar are going to battle once more, and civil war looms as Vikings debuts a Season 5 trailer at Comic-Con with a two-hour premiere.
History’s Vikings will look very different by the time Season 5 premieres this fall, and we don’t just mean the locations. Jonathan Rhys Meyers will take up his “Battle Bishop” role full-time after Travis Fimmel’s exit, and our first photos see some uniquely non-Viking locales.
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.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31.
Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
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.
