Every single episode of season five left us breathless and anxious for the next. History’s Vikings is returning in early December to begin its sixth and final season, and the network just released the first trailer and poster for the show, based on the sagas of the Vikings in medieval Scandinavia, England, and France. For followers of the series it’s goosebump-inducing stuff. Action-filled, bloody, and dramatic, the series has seen brilliant characters in Ragnar Lothbrok, his sons Bjorn and Ivar, Lagertha, and Floki. It’s also seen some powerful guest stars with roles taken on by the likes of Donal Logue, Linus Roache, Adam Copeland, Kris Holden-Ried, and Gabriel Byrne.
Series star Katheryn Winnick has lead the way with her powerful, historical character Lagertha. Credit goes to creator and showrunner Michael Hirst for his vision and smart writing, getting viewers to this season, and as the trailer reveals, some kind of a resolution between Bjorn and Ivar, for better or worse. It’s great television, and if you haven’t been watching, you have two months left to catch up.
Alexander Ludwig is back as Bjorn, with Gustaf Skarsgård as Floki and Alex Høgh as Ivar. Here is the new trailer for the sixth and final season of Vikings:
Screencaps really reflect the budget that goes into the production.
Look for the premiere of episode one of the final season of Vikings, December 4, 2019, on History, airing at 8 p.m. Central, Wednesdays.
