Exclusive Poster: Vikings Looks Bloody Good

This ain’t your momma’s Hagar the Horrible.

On Sunday, March 3 at 10/9c, History’s Vikings will set sail — and TVLine has a first look at the adventure-drama’s key art, featuring series star Travis Fimmel. Check it out, then read on for more:

A nine-part scripted series, Vikings promises to present the Dark Age raiders, traders and explorers not from an outsider’s view, but through the eyes of their own society. Travis Fimmel (the Beast) stars as Ragnar Lothbrok, a compelling farmer and family man who claims to be a direct descendant of the Norse god Odin and is always seeking new worlds to conquer. Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment) plays Ragnar’s local chieftain, Earl Haraldson, and Gustaf Skarsgard is his jester friend Floki.

The cast also features Katheryn Winnick (Bones) as Lagertha, a fierce shield maiden/Ragnar’s wife; Jessalyn Gilsig (Heroes) as Earl Haraldson’s wife; George Blagden (Les Miserables) as a Christian monk captured by Ragnar on his first raid on England; and Clive Standen (Camelot) as Rollo, Ragnar’s impulsive brother.

Will you explore what Vikings has to offer on March 3?

  3. The Beach says:

    Why do all these channels air their best programs on Sunday night? Spread the wealth and give my dvr a break.

  4. jasie says:

    I’ll watch anything with the great Jessalyn Gilsig in it.

  5. ggny says:

    solid cast for history channel first pilot

  6. Josh says:

    I wonder…how honest can the HIstory Channel be? I mean Vikings were rapists and murderers…In terms of violence and gore, this should be on level with Spartacus and Game of Thrones.

    • Jon says:

      That’s a little narrowminded, the Vikings were so much more than the unwashed barbarian horde of rapists and murderers a few accounts of surviving monks from raids on convents paint them as.

    • How shortsited you have to be to judge them by today’s societal standards. They would probably feel rather superior if they judged our by theirs.

  7. rachelle says:

    Yes! I’m so there!

  8. Eliza says:

    Read that Vikings was created by Michael Hirst and I absolutely loved The Tudors….so, I’m in.

  9. Rain says:

    Travis Fimmel – I’m in! I loved him as Tarzan years ago!

  10. Cheo says:

    I will watch; and I’ll take an axe to anyone who tries to stop me!

  11. STD says:

    There are several great clips of the show on the History Channel website.

  12. Ruby says:

    You had me until Jessalyn Gilsig.

    • jasie says:

      What? That’s surprising that you don’t care for Jessalyn. She’s been great in everything she has been in. Even Glee with the storylines she was given.

  13. G says:

    I wonder how pretty Travis Fimmel (Calvin Klein model and CW Tarzan) will look as a viking? I am thinking Brad Pitt in Troy?

  14. Brent Cole says:

    Previews look pretty sweet. I hope it’s not too PC.

    you bet your broadsword I will be watching!! Now how do I get the poster??
