‘Vikings’ season 5: Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen)
Alex Høgh Andersen plays Ivar the Boneless on ‘Vikings’ season 5. History

A new trailer of “Vikings” season 5 has been released online. The video teases a war against Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), and later a war among brothers. Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) is on a destructive path, and the video is mostly focused on him.

The voiceover (see below) is done by Ivar. The son of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) is intent on a war against Lagertha, even though his brother Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) feels it will only weaken their people, especially at a time when new threats are rising.

Ivar, on the other hand, not only foresees a war against Lagertha, but also a war among the brothers. Will he use these battles to secure position among his people and rise as the next king? In the voiceover, Ivar is attempting to force someone to fight alongside him or die.

Bjorn will fight in at least one of the coming battles. He will later travel to distant lands to seek fame and fortune.

Lagertha is also prepared for battle. In one of the scenes in the trailer, she says she’s now prepared to die. Whose fall does she seek before such happens? Fans will have to wait and watch the show to find out.

Season 5 is yet to premiere, and filming for season 6 is already underway. After some concern about the hurricane causing production problems, production appears to have resumed.

Winnick shared a new video of two extras with tattooed arms, showing impressive art from the series. Fans may have seen such art work before, but for Winninck, this was apparently the first time she was seeing something like this up close. She remarked that such an elaborate tattoo must have hurt, but the result looks “amazing.”
