Copeland previously recurred on Syfy’s Haven and next will be seen in WWE’s action-thriller Interrogation. He is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and OAZ & Associates.
Inquisitr – Fans of History’s Vikings can officially get excited about Season 5 after Katheryn Winnick posted a video to Instagram about the new season. It seems Ragnar will also be present. However, the character of Rollo will be absent for at least part of the Season 5.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information and speculation about Season 4 and 5 of History Channel’s Vikings. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.
Vikings Season 4 is currently on hiatus until later in the year after History decided to issue double the episodes this season and split the season over 2016 into two, 10-episode segments. History has not released when the second half of Season 4 of Vikings will return; however, Katheryn Winnick (who plays main character, Lagertha), has excited fans by releasing a short new video to her Instagram account announcing that filming has begun on Season 5 of Vikings.
But what can fans expect to see in Season 5 of Vikings? Will Ragnar, Lagertha, and the rest of the original cast still be present?
Considering Katheryn Winnick posted the Season 5 announcement video, it seems likely she will be present for at least part of Season 5 of Vikings. This means that Lagertha must survive the wounds inflicted on her in Episode 10 of Season 4 of Vikings.
