Season 4 of "Vikings" Premieres Tomorrow Night


With Black Sails nearing its season midpoint, we have the return of Vikings on History to keep us going until the April premiere of the next season of Game of Thrones. The Official Season 4 Trailer hints at a ton of conflict, some of which should arise as Rollo tries to found what will become Normandy in France, with a French princess as his wife.

Rollo may want to keep his French lands and French princess!
Meanwhile, there are images that suggest we may be getting close to Ragnar's legendary death (in a pit of snakes, no less, thanks to a Northumbrian king). But would the show really go so far as to kill off it's main character? This is supposed to be a 20 episode extended season, so I guess we'll know the answer by summer. Regardless, I'm looking forward to another season of Vikings!

Well, the opening episode of season 4 certainly got off to quite a start and featured plenty of action.

Just caught up on it, and it was a great episode. This season looks like it's going to be fun!

Lot's of treachery. Do you know if Rollo's massacre of his former friends is historical?

Joseph Finley said...

Bill, I've seen no evidence that ever happened. Although I understand that the historical evidence about Rollo is a bit vague. For example, whether he married this French princess is debatable among historians. But the "history" on Vikings has been out of whack for a few seasons now. I love the show, but it's become more historical fantasy than pure historical fiction.

Thanks. I guess they want to set up Rollo as the villain.
