After what has felt like a very long break, following the bizarre death of primary character Ragnar Lothbrok at the end of Season 4, 1 February 2017, on The History Channel, “VIKINGS” will return with the start of Season 5 on 29 November 2017, and it will span 20 episodes.
Excerpts from Wikipedia…
- Vikings is a historical drama television series written and created by Michael Hirst for the channel History. Filmed in Ireland, it premiered on March 3, 2013 in Canada.
- Vikings is inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, one of the best-known legendary Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of England and France. The show portrays Ragnar as a farmer who rises to fame by successful raids into England, and eventually becomes a Scandinavian king, with the support of his family and fellow warriors: his brother Rollo, his son Björn Ironside, and his wives—the shieldmaiden Lagertha and the princess Aslaug.
