IGN – That time jump in Vikings’ Season 4 midseason finale is sure going to shake things up when the series returns later in 2016.
In addition to meeting the four new actors playing Ragnar’s sons Ivar, Ubbe, Sigurd and Hvitserk, here’s a preview from showrunner Michael Hirst and actors Travis Fimmel, Alexander Ludwig and Gustaf Skarsgard of what’s to come when Season 4b premieres.
1. Ragnar Is Over Being King
Vikings has been the story of Ragnar’s ascension to kingship, but looking back on his character’s journey, Fimmel said Ragnar definitely wishes he’d just stayed a farmer. ” Everything’s changed around him, including him. Changed for the worst,” he said.
“I feel like it always feels like he’s let down or he doesn’t have the support of the people anymore,” Fimmel added. “He doesn’t know who to trust. The reasons is not what he thought he was doing it for. Everything that’s occurring is not why he started doing these adventures. It’s all for different reasons now — other people’s reasons, not Ragnar’s reasons. So he’s lost the beauty. He feels like the beauty of it’s all gone.”
