I’ve been falling behind on this site while it was on hiatus but now I need to catch up. I’ve added all of screencaps of panels, interviews, etc from Comic Con. I’ve also added two group events where two cast mates were at the same event, added some new photos to the photoshoot from 2016 Comic Con, events from all of the cast that have gone out since last time I updated, and the few episode stills and posters from Season 5 that are available.
EW – Ragnar Lothbrok died last season on Vikings, and while his fractious family avenged him by the finale, the great king’s presence is felt strongly in the trailer for the show’s fifth season. Debuted at the epic History series’ Comic-Con panel on Friday, the preview promises a full-blown civil war amongst Ragnar’s family, with devious Ivar announcing “a war between brothers” as he plots to overthrow Lagertha’s rule.
The fifth season will debut on Nov. 29. As Entertainment Weekly exclusively revealed, the new batch of episodes will send characters all over the map. Bjorn will ride a camel through the desert. Ivar will battle Bishop Heahmund (played by new series regular Jonathan Rhys Meyers) in England. Floki will set off on his own journey, which will take him to Iceland. But many of the characters will also join together for a climactic battle. How climactic? As Lagertha says at the end of the trailer, “The end of our world is here.”
TV LINE – History’s Vikings not only announced a Season 5 premiere date at the San Diego Comic-Con, it also released a typically intense trailer that warns of A) a war between brothers, B) a civil war and, for good measure, C) no less than “the end of of world” (as Lagertha puts it).
Returning Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 9/8c with a two-hour premiere, Vikings‘ new run features Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) as Bishop Heahmund, joining series regulars Katheryn Winnick, Gustaf Skarsgård, Alexander Ludwig and Alex Høgh Andersen.
Per the cabler, Season 5 begins with Ivar the Boneless asserting his leadership over the Great Heathen Army, while Lagertha reigns as Queen of Kattegat. Ivar’s murder of his brother Sigurd sets the stage for vicious battles to come as Ragnar’s sons plot their next moves after avenging their father’s death. Bjorn follows his destiny into the Mediterranean Sea and Floki, who is suffering from the loss of his wife Helga, takes to the seas submitting himself to the will of the gods.
The trailer above finishes with an ominous image, of an an Icelandic volcano erupting, as Lagertha’s aforementioned words weigh heavy….
EW – The Vikings panel at San Diego Comic-Con is always a raucous affair, but expect an especially wild time with the HISTORY series this year. Coming off a radical season that saw major characters depart the series, this year’s Vikings panel will include longtime stars Katheryn Winnick, Gustaf Skarsgard, and Alexander Ludwig, along with new key figure Alex Hogh Anderson (who plays devious rising conqueror Ivar) and the show’s creator Michael Hirst.
But Vikings is also staging a major event: An honest-to-god Viking Funeral, complete with a procession through the Gaslamp Quarter on Friday afternoon. The funeral will culminate at 7 p.m. local time with a pyrotechnic display on a 45-foot Viking longship, on the waterfront behind the Convention Center at Embarcadero Marina Park South. (Anyone who attends the latter can pick up their own Viking drinking horn.)
In addition, the cast will take over EW’s Snapchat account all day Friday for an inside look at all their goings on throughout the day (yes, including that Viking Funeral). Follow along by adding EWSnaps on Snapchat.
A mighty Viking warrior who believes he is destined for greatness. Leading Vikings to sail west for the first time, he rose to power first by defeating Earl Haraldson in single combat, then King Horik after he attempts to murder Ragnar and his family. Family: Lagertha (first wife), Queen Aslaug † (second wife), Rollo (brother), Björn (son), Gyda † (daughter), Ubbe (son), Hvitserk (son), Sigurd † (son), Ivar (son), Siggy † (granddaughter) Actor: Travis Fimmel
Lagertha is the first wife of Ragnar Lothbrok. She is an Earl, a strong shield-maiden and a force to be reckoned with. She has always fought in the shield-wall alongside the men. Although fate has pulled her apart from Ragnar, it seems that the gods must have a plan to bring them back
together, where they belong. Family: Ragnar † (first husband), Sigvard † (late husband), Rollo (former brother-in-law), Björn (son), Gyda † (daughter), Siggy † (granddaughter), Kalf † (lover) Actor: Katheryn Winnick
Rollo, Ragnar’s brother, is impulsive, wild, care-free and compulsive. Rollo is a fierce fighter who is a fearsome berserker known to 'fight like a bear' but is often svershadowed by his brother. The relationship between Rollo and Ragnar is intense and always unpredictable. Rollo has become the Duke of Normandy after marrying Princess Gisla (the daughter of Emperor Charles) and is named defender of France from the Vikings. Family: Siggy † (lover), Ragnar † (brother), Björn (nephew), Gyda † (nephew), Ubbe (nephew), Hvitserk (nephew), Sigurd † (nephew), Ivar (nephew), Lagertha (former sister-in-law), Aslaug † (sister-in-law), Princess Gisla (wife) Actor: Clive Standen
Bjorn Lothbrok is the son of Ragnar and Lagertha and the oldest of Ragnar’s many sons. Intelligent and determined, Bjorn loves and admires his father above all men. Following in Ragnar’s footsteps, Bjorn desires to test himself as a fighter as well as an explorer. After fighting in battle without receiving one wound or scratch, he garnered the famous nickname “Bjorn Ironside.” Family: Torvi (wife), Siggy † (daughter), Lagertha (mother), Ragnar † (father), Rollo (uncle), Gyda † (sister), Ubbe (brother), Hvitserk (brother), Sigurd † (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: Alexander Ludwig
Aslaug is the clever and beautiful daughter of the famed dragon slayer Sigurd and shield-maiden Brunhilde. Aslaug promised Ragnar that she would provide him with the sons which the ancient Seer prophesized for him – and she delivered. She is also a völva (a seeress). Family: Ragnar † (husband), Rollo (brother-in-law), Ubbe (son), Hvitserk (son), Sigurd † (son), Ivar (son), Björn (step-son) Actor: Alyssa Sutherland
The oldest son by Ragnar and Aslaug, he has a paternalistic attitude towards his younger brothers. Ubbe is a sensitive, thoughtful and attractive young man, in many ways the closest in outlook and instinct to his father Ragnar Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Hvitserk (brother), Sigurd † (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: Jordan Smith
Son of Ragnar. Hvitserk and his older brother Ubbe have a special bond because when they were children they jumped together in an icy lake and had to be rescued by Siggy, who died in the attempt. Hvitserk is more complex and a darker character than his brother Ubbe, characteristics which become more pronounced in time and lead to a terrible denouement. Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Ubbe (brother), Sigurd † (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: Marco Ilsø
Son of Ragnar. Sigurd was born with a astigmatism in one eye, in the shape of a snake or dragon. This flaw has a damaging psychological impact on him, making him feel different from his older brothers and more estranged from the family. He is a sensitive young man, growing up feeling that he has to provide himself. Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Ubbe (brother), Hvitserk (brother), Ivar (brother) Actor: David Lindstrom
Son of Ragnar. Perhaps the most famous Viking of all time, his pathological cruelty was notorious even during his own lifetime. Ivar is deeply ambitious and his ambitions will twist the legacy of his father out of shape, and create universal war. People are genuinely afraid of Ivar. Family: Ragnar † (father), Aslaug † (mother), Rollo (uncle), Björn (half-brother), Ubbe (brother), Hvitserk (brother), Sigurd † (brother) Actor: Alex Høgh Andersen
Floki is a genius ship builder and he designs and builds the prototype of the new generation of Viking ships which can sail across the open ocean but also up the shallowest of rivers. Without Floki, Ragnar would have never been able to fulfill his dreams of discovering new lands and new civilizations. Floki is a religious zealot who believes in the Gods above anything and everything, including Ragnar. Family: Helga † (wife), Angrboda † (daughter) Actor: Gustaf Skarsgård
First lover, then wife to Floki, Helga normally lives away from Kattegat with their daughter, but stays in the village when Floki is in Wessex, becoming close to Aslaug and Siggy. She travels to Paris but Floki's actions and behavior drives a wedge between them. Family: Floki (husband), Angrboda † (daughter) Actor: Maude Hirst
