Fans were recently overjoyed when it was announced that Michael Hirst’s action drama has been renewed for a sixth season. In addition to that, lead star Katheryn Winnick will direct one of the 20 episodes on the upcoming season.

The Canadian actress has previously confirmed on her official Twitter account that her episode will be filmed on January 2. In addition to that, Winnick teased the possibility that her directorial debut will “tell my story thru another lens.” Some believe Winnick is referring to Lagertha, who could be the main focus of the episode.

But which Vikings Season 6 episode will Katheryn Winnick direct? The star recently shared a photo of the script on Instagram. Unfortunately, the episode title is not legible. Nevertheless, fans believe that Winnick’s episode will be in the first half of the sixth season.

So does this mean Lagertha will survive the harrowing Vikings Season 5? People have been concerned about the queen of Kattegat since Ivar the Boneless and King Harald Finehair declared war against her. In addition to that, the Seer has predicted that Lagertha will be killed by one of Ragnar Lothbrok’s sons. Luckily, it looks like the former Earl Ingstad will make it through the current season and return later this year.
