From February 27th to April 24th, your TV screen will be filled with axes, battles, beards, love, politics and invasions – in short; Vikings season two!
The new season will look at the main characters as representatives of the Norse gods. Ragnar Lothbrok is thirsty for more knowledge, and must be willing to sacrifice to get that, just like Odin gave his eye. Freyja is represented by two women; Lagertha and the warrior theme, and Aslaug’s fertility. Other details revealed from season two includes a time jump of several years, with an older Bjorn who gets a stepfather through Lagertha remarrying an earl.
