Vikings Season 3 Release Date, Spoilers: Paris raid ushers in the Viking Age; Lost’s Kevin Durand Joins Vikings Season 3 Cast
Vikings Season 3 news: Expect 10 new episodes from History Channel’s hit TV series as Vikings Season 3 release date is set for the summer of 2015.
The previous Vikings season ended with Earl Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) proclaimed King of Denmark, after killing its ruler Horik (Donal Logue).
So what’s going to happen next? Vikings Season 3 spoilers revealed that the upcoming season will see Lothbrok and his Viking warriors in The Great Raid in Paris, taking a fleet of 100 ships into battle. This event ushers in the Viking Age.
“Yeah, we’re gonna attack Paris. Paris was the most extraordinary city. It was still a Roman city, and it was like nothing else on earth,” said Vikings creator Michael Hirst.
Paris scenes are being recreated with CGI technology.
“We’re just building that, at the moment, on the back lot. It will also be CGI,” Rith shared.
Ragnar will reconnect with his brother Rollo (Clive Standen) as they raid the French capital.
“We go back to the raiding thing this year instead of all the dramas in Kattegat,” quipped Fimmel.
Meanwhile, Lost’s Kevin Durand joins Vikings Season 3 as Wanderer, a man who has more to him than meets the eye.
Vikings Season 3 cast also includes Lothaire Bluteau as Emperor Charles of France; Jennie Jacques as Judith, mother of Alfred the Great; and Morgane Polanksi as the Emperor’s daughter Princess Gisla.
Vikings Season 3 producers have shared that a character might bid the series adieu, but have declined to divulge more details.
