History’s Vikings invaded Comic-Con with a “Vikings Longship” (actually a tricked-out bus), providing fans with an opportunity to hang out with the cast of the hit show as they rode around the popular Gaslamp District in Downtown San Diego. Yahoo TV grabbed a seat on the “ship” with stars Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok) and Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), who offered a few teases about Season 4. So, what do the Gods have planned for our favorite raiders?
Winnick says we should expect plenty more action-packed battle sequences, and a focus on the family saga of the Lothbrok clan. Fimmel reveals that the Vikings will return to Paris, the city they successfully raided last season, as well as other locations we’ve yet to see before. More guts, more glory, more beards, more braids! Odin be praised.
Vikings returns in early 2016 on History.
I think this might be all there is from Comic Con. Thanks to Far Far Away for their help!

Vikings stars Travis Fimmel (Ragnar), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Clive Standen (Rollo) and Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn), along with series creator Michael Hirst took us on a raid in their long ship (festooned with severed heads) around San Diego harbor at Comic-Con. We came back with some spoils (no, not spoilers) of our own–hints on what happens to the characters when Vikings returns in Season 4.
As Season 4 opens Ragnar is recovering from battle wounds he sustained in the raid on Paris. “A lot of this year is his fascination with death,” Fimmel says. Hirst adds, “A lot of the first part of the season asks what happens if Ragnar dies. People are queuing up to rule.”
Ragnar’s young sons with second wife Auslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) will be aged up and take on a bigger role. Expect some serious father/son tension and rivalry. And, there will be a new woman in Ragnar’s life: Yudi, a Chinese slave captured in the Red Sea, played by Dianne Doan.
