Vikings Midseason 5 Trailer & Fall Premiere Date Announced
History’s Vikings is set to begin the second half of its fifth season later this year, and the network dropped a visually striking trailer to herald the return of Ivar the Boneless and his warring brothers. The series has been going strong for several years now, and although the most recent season was the first without Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok, his ostensible replacement, Alexander Høgh, as Ragnar’s bloodthirsty son Ivar, has been as magnetic a presence, though for completely different reasons.
Season 5 has more or less been about Ivar’s pursuit of power, even against his own brothers, whom he’s demonstrated time and again he’s more than happy to do without. At the end of the midseason finale, Ivar’s efforts saw him emerge victorious as the new ruler of Kattegat, having displaced Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and ensured his half-brother Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) has set his sights on revenge. And if the new trailer is any indication, the last 10 episodes of season 5 will feature some of the most impressive battle sequences the show has put on yet.
