VIKINGS charts the destructible behaviour of the powerful Norsemen who raided their way through Europe in medieval times. The series follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, the greatest hero of his age, and tells the sagas of Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. As well as being a fearless warrior, Ragnar embodies the Norse traditions of devotion to the gods; legend has it that he was a direct descendant of Odin, the god of war and warriors.
Written by acclaimed writer and period drama specialist Michael Hirst (Elizabeth/The Tudors), VIKINGS Season 1 was the first ever scripted series to be aired on the History Channel.
VIKINGS stars Gabriel Byrne, Travis Fimmel, George Blagden and Jessalyn Gilsig.
