Today the History channel announced that VIKINGS will return to finish out its fourth season on Wednesday, November 30 at 9PM ET/PT, thus moving to a new night.
After being defeated in a monumental battle in Paris against his brother Rollo (Clive Standen), Ragnar disappeared following his humiliating loss. VIKINGS then took an enormous leap forward during the midseason finale, time-jumping to a new era in its characters’ lives.
In the midseason premiere, Ragnar’s reappearance in Kattegat triggers a chain of events no one – except the Seer – could have ever imagined. He unexpectedly arrives home to see what has become of his sons and to handle unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert (Linus Roache). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) plans a power play in Kattegat and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) prepares to fulfill his long-held dream to explore the Mediterranean in a sleek new boat built for him by Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård).
“This season is monumental and unlike anything we’ve ever done,” said Michael Hirst, creator and writer. “We’ve propelled VIKINGS to the topmost level of historical drama as we follow storylines inspired by real life events such as Bjorn Ironside sailing through the Mediterranean and Ivar the Boneless becoming the most feared warrior of all time. It’s not a story of one man, but a saga of Ragnar and his sons.”
