Vikings Season 5 Cast: Vikings is an immensely popular show that deals with war, power play and complex emotions. This popular series is inspired by the tales of the raiding, trading, and exploring Norsemen of early medieval Scandinavia. The Irish-Canadian historical drama television series is written and created by Michael Hirst for the television channel History. In this article we will try to explore the entire Vikings Season 5 Cast and Crew in detailed manner. 

Now the plot of Vikings is inspired by the saga of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, who is one of the best-known legendary Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of England and France. The show portrays him as a farmer who rises to fame by successful raids into England, and eventually with the support of his family and fellow warriors like his brother Rollo, his son Björn Ironside, and his wife and the shieldmaiden Lagertha becomes a Scandinavian king. Started with just 9 episodes, the 1st season created a huge craze for the tele-series and with popular choice successfully completed its 4 seasons. The Vikings Season 5 is on the row and is declared to be on air at the later half of 2017.

Now as the show has officially confirmed the 5th season on its way that will be aired in the later 2017 the curiosity and expectations are touching the sky. The story of Vikings follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew and family, along with it has also taken hints from 13th century sagas Ragnars saga Loðbrókar and Ragnarssona þáttr, as well as in Saxo Grammaticus's 12th century work Gesta Danorum. The fictional tales based in Norse oral tradition which is strangely written down about 200 to 400 years after the events they describe. Though there is fact that some critics have pointed out historical inaccuracies in the series' depiction of Viking society.

Vikings Season 5 Cast & Crew

As depicting a saga it is quite natural that Vikings have a number of casts that is also adding numbers with time. There are few lead characters that are constant since the first season but there are few which are getting more importance with time. As the curiosity buds are blooming there is a very obvious question that is haunting, who to take the front seats in the Vikings Season 5 Cast.

  • Ivar the Boneless
  • Lagertha
  • Bishop Heahmund
  • Rollo
  • Aethelwulf

We have already witnessed how Aethelwulf’s father Ecbert died in season 4 by committing suicide as he wanted to die according to his wish and way rather than getting killed by Ivar. And when he realized that he was running out of powers, he gave away a land to Aethelwulf which was seen in the previous season. It has been anticipated that there might be high chances of Aethelwulf collaborating with Bishop Heahmund in Vikings Season 5 and attack Denmark. Therefore, the is quite obvious that Aethelwulf might also fit in to the limelight in Vikings Sesaon 5 by becoming one of the most important characters of the season.

  • Floki
  • Helga
  • Bjorn Ironside

Bjorn is always the preferred son of Ragnar who is most perfect among his sons and is the right candidate to ascend the throne after Ragnar. He is now in Rome.

Sons of Ragnar and Aslaug

  • Ubbe is the first son born to Aslaug and Ragnar who was conceived while Ragnar was still married to Lagertha. Nothing much has revealed about him in the running season and thus it is expected that there will be lot to know about him in the upcoming episodes of the Vikings season 5.
  • Hvitserk : he is another claimer of the throne and in his teenage. He is now in Rome too along with Bjorn Ironside.

The characters and the twists of Vikings is one of its integral parts. Now with each season the story is becoming more complex and as it is taken from some real life legends, it is more nail biting for the audiences. There are a lot of twists that will be seen in the 5th season of Vikings and we cannot wait any longer. But as we know the upcoming season will be aired in the second half of 2017, the waiting can be a bit longer.
