Vikings season five arrives on Netflix Australia


Sound the horns and raise the banners, Vikings is back on Netflix!

The popular historical drama will return for part two of its fifth season on November 30, with a sixth season already approved.

While we unfortunately had to bid farewell to series juggernaut Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Aussie Travis Fimmel) due to a nasty introduction to a snake pit, Season 5 follows the dramatic exploits and betrayals of his sons as they fight for power and glory.

The first half of Season 5 saw Ragnar’s offspring – consisting of Bjorn Ironside, Ubbe, Hvitserk and Ivan the Boneless – fight for power across England and Norway, with series regulars Floki and Lagertha all in the thick of it.

The final minutes of part one saw the return of Rollo, Ragnar’s brother.

“He’s come back to deal with things which were never dealt with in the past,” said show creator Michael Hirst. “We’re going back to season one here, where there were huge questions about his relationship, and Ragnar’s relationship with Lagertha, and what had actually happened between them all – and frankly, whose son Bjorn was. So Rollo is sailing back to deal with things that have been on his mind for a long time.”

While originally shown on the History channel, Vikings made the transition to streaming sites, with all seasons available on Netflix, meaning you still have time to get yourself up to speed before the latest season hits screens.

With 10 episodes in part two scheduled for weekly release, viewers can expect plenty of battles, bloodshed and mayhem to come.

“Vikings has evolved from early raids in England to the heart-stopping death of Ragnar Lothbrok, to the fierce battles of the Great Heathen Army, and now we’ll see the sons of Rangar exploring and conquering the known world,” said History Channel executive Eli Lehrer.

Excited viewers can check out just some of the battles via the official trailer, first screened at the 2018 Comic-Con event.
