During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, History announced a return date for season five of Vikings along with a brand new trailer.
Season five resumes with the arrival of a legendary Viking, the famous Duke Rollo (Clive Standen), who causes further upheaval in a Kattegat still reeling from Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) becoming its King.
As Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) flee Ivar’s murderous forces to regroup with Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Ivar’s tyrannical reign over Scandinavia ushers in a new Dark Age.
Ultimately, Ivar’s reign will not go unchallenged by the sons of Ragnar and old enemies will become allies to defeat the despot who has declared himself a God on earth.
Meanwhile in Iceland, Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) battles the elements, and his own settlers’ desire for revenge, to forge a Viking colony on the beautiful and desolate landscape.
The Vikings mid-season five premiere airs 28th November on History, and the cast and crew are already in production for a twenty-episode sixth season.
