SBS to air second part of season four of Vikings this summer

The second and final instalment of the fourth season of hit historical series Vikings will return to Australian televisions in early 2017. The top-rating Nordic drama will air on SBS, with new episodes beginning on Wednesday, January 11 at 8.30pm.

“This season is monumental and unlike anything we’ve ever done,” says series creator and writer, Michael Hirst. “We’ve propelled Vikings to the topmost level of historical drama as we follow storylines inspired by real life events such as Bjorn Ironside sailing through the Mediterranean and Ivar the Boneless becoming the most feared warrior of all time. It’s not a story of one man, but a saga of Ragnar and his sons.”

Vikings was renewed for a fifth season that is currently in post-production and boasts three Aussie thesps. Travis Fimmel portrays the lead role of Ragnar Lothbrok, Alyssa Sutherland Queen Aslaug, and new to the show former Neighbours star Jordan Patrick Smith portrays their now grown-up son Ubbe. The conclusion to the fourth season of Vikings is sure to be teeming with all the epic adventures, battles and drama the series is known for.

Part one of season four of Vikings is available to own on DVD and Blu-ray, which we reviewed here. Check out the trailer for part two of Season four below.
