“Ragnar needs some unexpected intervention,” says showrunner Michael Hirst alongside exclusive video from Thursday’s season premiere.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – It’s no secret that Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) have had one of the most rollercoaster relationships over the past three seasons of Vikings. When the History series returns for a fourth season Thursday, however, it seems as though their long-standing friendship may finally be coming to an end.
I’ve recently added a new feature to the gallery. The individual cast members now have a section for events with their photoshoots. I still need to add a few cast members but the ones below have been added. The events they attend together will remain in the group events. These are just the other events.
I’ve added some more photos to different events and previous seasons as well as adding some photos to the upcoming season.
This looks so intense! I’m ready for season 4 NOW!
EW – History’s Vikings is returning Feb. 18, but for fans who can’t wait, EW is excited to share an exclusive look at the new season: A Last Supper-inspired piece of key art featuring the show’s cast. Vikingscreator/writer-of-every-episode Michael Hirst offers an in-depth look at the artwork. Click on the image above for a full-sized view, and read Hirst’s tantalizing teases for the season ahead, below:
A picture of the Last Supper portraying pagan Vikings in the role of Christ and his apostles may seem, to some, very controversial. But I would say, if nothing else, it emphasizes the centrality of belief systems and spirituality in the show. We are addressing that conflict between Christianity and paganism.
So many Renaissance artists painted a version of the Last Supper because of art starting to perform a new function. The depict human and emotional dilemmas using this motif, the image of prophesied betrayal. All the figures in these paintings are concentrated around the words: “One of you will betray me.” I think that’s the key to understanding this image that we have from the show. It’s exactly the same issue that’s being confronted.
