Vikings focuses on Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), a young warrior and family man who desires to find and conquer new lands across the sea and claim them as his own. Now he is an Earl, allied with King Horrik (Donal Logue). With more power than ever before, his desire to sail west and explore new kingdoms remains unappeasable.

Season two brings crises of faith, of power, of relationships. The action packed and emotionally charged season has brothers rise up against one another; loyalties shift from friend to foe; and has unlikely alliances 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, and blood is spilled, all under the watchful eyes of the gods.

New to the cast of Vikings in season two are Canadian Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games) as Bjorn, the bold and intelligent son of Ragnar Lothbrok, and Linus Roache (Law & Order) as Ecbert, King of Wessex, a man of strength, knowledge and ambition. They join Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok; Canadian Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha, a fierce shield maiden and Ragnar’s wife; Clive Standen as Rollo, Ragnar’s impulsive, care-free brother; George Blagden as Athelstan, a young and not-so-innocent Monk; Canadian Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy, beautiful wife of the late Earl Haraldson; Canadian Donal Logue as King Horrik, who desires to make the increasingly famous Earl Ragnar an ally and supporter; Gustaf Skarsgard as Floki, a ship builder who designs the new generation of Viking ships; and Alyssa Sutherland as Princess Aslaug, Ragnar’s new love interest.

Vikings is created and written by Michael Hirst – one of the premier historical storytellers in the industry (Academy Award-winning film Elizabeth; and the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series The Tudors). Hirst serves as Executive Producer along with John Weber of Take 5 Productions (The Tudors; The Borgias), Sheila Hockin (The Tudors; The Borgias), Morgan O’Sullivan of World 2000 (The Count of Monte Cristo; The Tudors), Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer and James Flynn (The Tudors; The Borgias).

Vikings is an international Irish/Canadian co-production being co-produced by Canada’s Take 5 Productions and Ireland’s World 2000. HISTORY broadcasts both domestically in Canada and in the U.S. MGM Television brings Vikings to global audiences, serving as the worldwide distributor outside of Ireland and Canada. Vikings is produced in association with Shaw Media.


In addition to all ten episodes, the Vikings season two DVD and Blu-ray includes bonus features such as behind the scenes clips, photo gallery, promo reels and a sneak peek into what season three has in store for fans. The Vikings season two DVD and Blu-ray will be available at all major retailers across Canada for $59.99.
