Season 6 of Vikings is finally upon us, and we have waited long enough! Our favorite warriors are back for a final season and based on the preview, we have a feeling it will be bittersweet.
Bjorn Ironside is now King of Kattegat (Alexander Ludwig), while Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) searches for peace. Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) struggles to move on, and Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) steps up for his brother, King Bjorn. Meanwhile, Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) travels along the Silk Road and encounters a formidable opponent.
Catch up on last season’s finale here, and watch the season 6 official trailer below.
How will King Bjorn handle power and will Ivar find his way back to Kattegat?
The official descriptions of the episodes are listed as follows:
It’s six months after the battle of Kattegat and Bjorn is now King. But as he struggles with the responsibilities of kingship, he finds he can’t rely on his mother, Lagertha – she has other plans. But can Lagertha lead a quieter life and leave her days as a shield-maiden behind? Ivar falls into the hands of the Kievan Rus, and in their ruthless and unpredictable ruler, Prince Oleg, he may finally have met his match. Intrigued by Ivar’s claims to be a god, Oleg decides to put him to the test.
Messengers arrive in Kattegat with news that presents Bjorn with a dilemma. As Bjorn attempts to do the right thing as ruler of Kattegat, Prince Oleg of Kiev seems untroubled by his conscience. Even Ivar is shocked by Oleg’s vicious character as he wrestles for control over the young heir to the throne of the Rus Empire. Lagertha has settled into her new, peaceful life, but danger lurks nearby.
Season 6 of Vikings begins with a two-hour premiere starting on Wednesday, December 4, at 9 p.m. EST on History.
