The Vikings Season 5 trailer was dropped at San Diego Comic-Con earlier and to no one’s surprise, it looks epic! Last season, which saw the death of our hero, Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), and the rise of his sons, Bjorn, Ivar, Ubbe, Hvitserk, and Sigurd (Alexander Ludwig, Alex Høgh Andersen, Jordan Patrick Smith, Marco Ilsø, David Lindström), and ended with Ivar killing Sigurd. The trailer puts all the stuff we love about Vikings out there – the violence (watch a head roll), the sets (Bjorn is on the desert), the family drama (CIVIL WAR!). It seems that everyone wants Kattegat, everyone wants Wessex, and everyone wants the world.
And the premiere date is… November 29th! Can’t wait!
The trailer was part of the panel in Room 6BCF last night, where
Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Gustaf Skarsgard (Floki), Ludwig, and Andersen, and creator Michael Hirst talked about the upcoming season and had a surprise guest – Travis Fimmel in a kangaroo suit!
“This series has a fiercely loyal and dedicated fanbase and they’re hungry for more content that can make them feel a part of the Vikings tribe,” Daniel Eves said, senior vice-president of Specialty Networks, Corus Entertainment. “Following the tremendous success of the immersive website Vikings: A World Revealed, we’re thrilled to augment the virtual Vikings experience while also elevating the brand across this emerging platform.”
My only question is… where’s Rollo? Epic new Vikings Season 5 Trailer!
