Everything to Know About the Final Season of ‘Vikings’

The highly-anticipated last season of Vikings will be here before we know it. Although the release date hasn’t yet been announced, the actors on the show are doing the utmost to tease the final season. It’s been over six months since the last season premiered, and fans are scrambling for any information they can get about the final season. Fans hope to see their favorites conquer their enemies on the battlefield one last time.

The final season will be a “banger”

Alexander Ludwig, who plays the role of Bjorn Lothbrok, teased on his Twitter page that the final season is “coming soon” and will be a “banger.” Ludwig was recently at San Diego Comic Con with fellow cast member and on-screen mom, Katheryn Winnick to promote the show. He shared a sweet picture of the pair on his Instagram to commemorate the event.

A new trailer for Season 6 has been released

A new teaser trailer has been released online for season 6. It teases Lagertha (Winnick) and Bjorn preparing for war with Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen). Ivar thinks he is a god and all should bow to his will. The epic showdown of brother against brother is sure to come in the final season. It will be interesting to see how Lagertha plays into it.

Katheryn Winnick underwent prosthetics to properly age Lagertha

Winnick, who plays Lagertha on the show, had to undergo crazy prosthetics, as her character has aged considerably in the final season. Although they have tried to make her age gradually throughout the show, the series spans many years, so it makes sense Lagertha will look a lot older in the new season.

Winnick told ET, “It was a bit challenging because we wanted to age her, so I actually went through two-and-a-half hours of prosthetics before every shoot. We ended up doing latex on the eyes and the neck to be able to show the progress of age. Hey, she’s a granny now.”

*Possible Spoilers Ahead*

Although not a lot of information is confirmed about the final season as it is being kept closely under wraps, there are still spoilers. Winnick, who has been really hyping the final season, shared a post on Twitter of an IBT article about her character. The article in question possibly revealed the fate of her character. Somehow, an alleged photo from the final season was leaked on Redditt, showing a funeral pyre complete with sword and shield, fit for a Viking queen.

The Seer prophesied her death

This isn’t a surprise to die-hard Vikings fans. The show revealed her fate in a previous season, in which she visits the Seer (John Kavanagh), who tells her of her impending death at the hands of a son of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), her old husband and the love of her life. As she is a beloved character, it makes sense that the producers would want to keep her on as long as they could. But, as this is the final season, they can no longer postpone the inevitable. Previous prophesies from the Seer have already come to pass, so many fans think this one will as well.

Fans won’t have to wait much longer to find out what the fates have in store for all of our favorite characters on Vikings. They will be back for a sixth and final season.
