New Teaser for 'Vikings' Season 5b Brings the Blood and Chaos

HISTORY just dropped a new teaser ahead of the season 5b return of their drama series Vikings, and it's pretty freaking epic.

When we last saw the denizens of Kattegat and beyond, things weren't going so well. There were battles, familial breaks, and something that affected Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) so badly during a skirmish that her hair turned white.

The SDCC 2018 trailer for the upcoming season was the stuff of goosebump raising fever dreams- images of Ivar (Alex Hoeg Andersen) in flames and blood being crowned, Bjørn (Alexander Ludwig) in some kind of trance-like state before a battle, Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) being….Floki, Ubbe (Jordan Smith) looking more and more like Ragnar, Torvi (Georgia Hirst) continuing her bad-ass transformation, Helmut (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and Lagertha together….pretty much everything we could want to see in a trailer.

Vikings is set to return for the back-half of season 5 beginning on November 28th, 2018 on HISTORY, as well as a 20-episode 6th season (which was ordered ahead of season 5's premiere).
