Vikings Season 5 Gets Premiere Date, Trailer Teasing 'The End of Our World'

History’s Vikings not only announced a Season 5 premiere date at the San Diego Comic-Con, it also released a typically intense trailer that warns of A) a war between brothers, B) a civil war and, for good measure, C) no less than “the end of of world” (as Lagertha puts it).

    Weird to see Lagertha hooking up with Ragnars son, especially a son of the woman she divorced Ragnar for having an affair with, oh and Lagertha murdered the mother as well. WEIRD
