History’s ‘Vikings’ Season 2 Sets February Premiere: Prepare for Battle!
The History channel’s first original series, ‘Vikings,’ certainly caught our attention last year, but at nine episodes, Ragnar and his brood came and went far too quickly. That all changes in February 2014, as History has officially set a premiere date for the 10 episodes of ‘Vikings’ season 2!
According to the network, ‘Vikings’ will return to pillage and plunder anew on Thursday, February 27 at 10:00 p.m. As revealed by the press release, this time around “season two brings crises of faith, of power, of relationships. Brothers rise up against one another. Loyalties shift from friend to foe, and unlikely alliances are formed in the name of supremacy. Ragnar’s indiscretions threaten his marriage to Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), tearing him and his beloved son apart. Plots are hatched, scores are settled, blood is spilled…all under the watchful eyes of the gods.”
Along with ‘The Hunger Games’ Star Alexander Ludwig’s casting as an elder Bjorn, ‘Batman Begins‘ star Linus Roache was announced to play the regular role of King Ecbert of Wessex. Returning cast for ‘Vikings’ season 2 includes ‘World of Warcraft”s Travis Fimmel as Ragnar, Clive Standen as his treacherous brother Rollo, George Blagden as Athelstan, ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star Donal Logue as King Horrik, Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy (beautiful wife of the late Earl Haraldson), Alyssa Sutherland as Princess Aslaug, Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha and Gustaf Skarsgard as the ship-building Floki.
