Vikings is inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, which has become one of the most gripping shows of television that has completed four successful seasons and now heading towards the fifth. The fans of the series cannot stop speculating the plot of the show as Ragner is already dead. Now it is quite likely that his sons will take the front row to become the part of the power play. There was even speculation that Lagertha’s (Katheryn Winnick) death will take place in the season. But to the utter surprise of the fans the actress has revealed that she is very much in the fifth season of Vikings.
It seems that the show’s production has decided to still keep her alive. The rumors became prominent in Vikings season 4 that Lagertha is going to die in the second part. But as the season ended, Winnick’s character remained in the series. In an Instagram post by Winnick, the 39-year old actress shared photos of her sitting in her new chair, and a photo is part of season 5. It seems that the actress is challenging Ivar when she used a hashtag for her photo, “my ass is staying put Ivar.”
Katheryn Winnick’s has also shared an Instagram video that shows the actress is wearing black war paint across her eyes. She is also shown her hair back in braids with an interesting ornament that seems to represent a crown. Lagertha may be preparing to fight Ivar the Boneless, who has taken a vow to kill the new Queen for murdering his mother Aslaug.
Katheryn Winnick’s character will look very different in Vikings season 5 with Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) out of the frame. His death will be the driving force of the story still and the power play now will be more intense.
Vikings season 5 will also feature a new character Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), who is already introduced in the season 4 finale. The warrior bishop will be pit against Ivar the Boneless (Alex Hogh). He is one of the precursors of the Knights Templar, who, while deeply religious, also know how to get bloody and berserk in the battlefield.
The show Vikings starts with Ragnar who was a former farmer who rises to fame by powerful raids into England, who eventually becomes king of Denmark, with the support of his family and fellow warriors like his brother Rollo, his son Bjorn Ironside, and his wives—the shieldmaiden Lagertha and the princess Aslaug.
So there is no doubt the show will be interesting with some add twist and with some new faces along with the power play in the family. The fans are eagerly waiting for the premier of the show. But the confirmed date of Vikings Season 5 release has not been revealed yet. But as per the reports it will be in History Channel at the end of this year or at the beginning of the next year.
The fans need to wait till then to know that will be the fate of the Vikings Season 5.
