With Vikings‘ Season 3 premiere now just six weeks away, History has released a new cast photo, a piece of key art and a series of teaser videos declaring(/warning?), “The world is ours.”
The logline for the new season reads as follows: “With the promise of new land from the English, Ragnar leads his people to an uncertain fate on the shores of Wessex…. Ever the restless wanderer, Ragnar is searching for something more, and he finds it in the mythical city of Paris. Rumored to be impenetrable to outside forces, Ragnar and his band of Norsemen must come together to break down its walls and cement the Vikings legend in history.”
Season 3 brings back, of course, series leads Travis Fimmel and Katheryn Winnick, as well as Clive Standen (as Rollo), Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn), George Blagden (Athelstan), Jessalyn Gilsig (Siggy), Linus Roache (Ecbert), Gustaf Skarsgard (Floki) and Alyssa Sutherland (Queen Aslaug).
New faces include Kevin Durand (The Strain) as Harbard, a wanderer who will have a profound effect on Queen Aslaug, Siggy and Helga, all of whom have had the same dream presaging his arrival in Kattagat; Lothaire Bluteau (The Tudors) and Morgane “daughter of Roman” Polanski as Emperor Charles of France and his daughter, Princess Gisla; and Ben Robson as Kalf, Lagertha’s young, secretly calculating second-in-command.
