SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses History Channel’s Vikings. Please proceed with caution if you have not yet viewed all available episodes and wish to avoid spoilers.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, this year’s San Diego Comic-Con will be a virtual event thanks to the current coronavirus pandemic. With the event only two weeks away, news is starting to emerge regarding the panels available. The latest announcement is regarding the historical drama series, Vikings.
According to TV Insider, the upcoming panel will include Travis Fimmel, who played the main character Ragnar Lothbrok for four seasons. He will join fellow cast members Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Alex Ludwig (Bjorn Ironside), Clive Standen (Rollo), and Jordan Patrick Smith (Ubbe). In addition, the show’s creator and writer, Micheal Hirst will be there and the panel, titled, Vikings: A Look Back with The Lothbroks, will be hosted by TV Guide‘s senior writer, Kate Hahn.
Fimmel was an original cast member for History’s hit historical TV series. His character, Ragnar, was instrumental to the storyline. However, in the second part of Season 4, the fearsome Viking warrior was killed by King Aelle (Ivan Kaye). Since then, the story has continued via his many sons borne to Lagertha, and his second wife, Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland). In addition, another potential son, Magnus (Dean Ridge), was also included briefly in the TV series.
While many fans will be excited to learn of Fimmel’s participation in this year’s panel, there is further thrilling news: the panel will also include an exclusive sneak peek of the final half of Season 6 of Vikings. This news was not entirely unexpected as the panel each year usually releases a new sneak peek into the upcoming season.
Currently, History Channel has aired the first 10 episodes of Season 6, which will be the final season. As yet, there is no premiere date for the last 10 episodes. However, considering the previous Vikings schedule and the fact that the episodes were filmed and completed some time ago, it is anticipated that the final installment will likely begin to air in late November or early December. Fans are also anticipating that the new clip will reveal this premiere date.
The panel’s participants will be dialing in remotely in order to maintain social distancing requirements. Also, because San Diego Comic-Con is now a virtual event, all panels will be viewable by the public. The Vikings panel will be available to view on YouTube on Friday, July 24 at 11 a.m. PT.
