History has released the official trailer for the upcoming fifth season of Vikings and in it, we see that Ragnar’s death was not an ending for the Viking people – it was a beginning.
“Vikings is about bold storytelling,” said Arturo Interian, Senior Vice President, Scripted Programming, History. “When Michael Hirst told us his epic plans for the season premiere, we needed two hours to tell it properly. Season Five is taking our Vikings to uncharted lands we’ve never seen on the series before.”
Season five of Vikings finds the sons of Ragnar squaring off against one another for supremacy over their people. As aggressive and angry as ever, Ivar is still keyed in on taking down Lagertha for the murder of Aslaug, whereas Ubbe, Bjorn, and Hvitserk look to seek justice for Sigurd’s death at the hands of their brother. Meanwhile, Lagertha, feeling pressure to retain her throne amid a sea of change and unsettled that the fallout from Ragnar’s death has yet to subside, reaches out to Ubbe for an alliance that could protect her against an incoming invasion from King Harald. A lot is at stake without Ragnar around anymore and each of his sons, along with his first wife, are hell-bent on seizing as much of the power up for grabs as they can, no matter what it takes.
Vikings is set set to premiere its fifth season with a two-hour premiere Wednesday, November 29th at 9:00 on History.
