Vikings Season 5 Release Date and Epic New Trailer Revealed
The next season of Vikings is currently on its way. We were already aware that the show was to helm a very interesting panel at SDCC 2017, replete with new information about the Vikings Season 5 release date and more. It is not surprising that fans’ wishes have been gratified on that front, but what has everyone excited is the brand new trailer that gives a glimpse of the tumultuous plot of the upcoming entry.
Vikings Season 5 Release Date
It was earlier predicted that the new installment of Vikings would be rolled out in November, and the officially announced Vikings Season 5 release date complies with that. The new entry will begin airing on History from November 29. Moreover, the season will kick off with a two-hour long premier, which will lay out the grounding for the rest of the epic happenings to come.
Vikings returns to History with regular cast members Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Gustaf Skarsgård (Floki), Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn), and Alex Høgh (Ivar), alongside many more.
Vikings Season 5 Trailer
As is to be expected, it looks as if everything is about to fall apart when the installment begins airing in late November this year. And going by the looks of the new Vikings Season 5 trailer, perhaps the characters will be no closer to a resolution by the end of the 20 episode-long run.
The trailer of Vikings Season 5 from SDCC 2017 gives a lot of importance to Ivar and his rise. As has already been speculated, Ragnar’s son will command center stage in the new entry, and he will have some very intriguing face-offs. In that vein, the trailer also shows us a bit of Jonathan Rhys Meyers (August Rush, The Tudors) as Bishop Heahmund. But the highlight of the video is undoubtedly the tensions rising as a civil war wages: epic battle scenes result in disembodied heads rolling on the ground. Amidst all this chaos, the end of the trailer is sobering. One sits and watches a volcano erupt- a clear metaphor for the way things are about to unfold, as another speaks the words “The end of the world is here” elsewhere.
Vikings Season 5 will be a show of grand proportions, and while it is not yet known if the upcoming entry will be the final one, there is still a long way to go before all the existing threads can be brought together to form a sense of finality. As the threats of war looms large, all we can think of is: how far-reaching will the consequences of Ragnar’s death be? And what is in store for Queen Lagertha? Stay with us for more information on Vikings Season 5 as they come.
