Season 5 of History's 'Vikings' Gets Return Date

History has today announced the return date for the second half of the fifth season for the original drama series Vikings. The reveal occurred during the show's panel at Comic-Con.

The drama returns for the second set of 10 episodes in its fifth season on Wednesday, November 28 at 9/8c.

The season continues with the arrival of a legendary viking, the famous Duke Rollo (Clive Standen), who causes further upheaval in a Kattegat still reeling from Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Anderson) becoming its King. As Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) flee Ivar's forces with Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Ivar's tyrannical reign over Scandinavia ushers in a new Dark Age, the likes of which have never been seen. Ultimately, Ivar's reign will not go unchallenged by the sons of Ragnar and old enemies will become allies to defeat the despot who has declared himself a god on Earth. Meanwhile in Iceland, Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) battles the elements, and his own settlers' desire for revenge, to forge a Viking colony on the beautiful and desolate landscape.

Michael Hirst created the drama. He executive produces with Morgan O'Sullivan, James Flynn, Sheila Hockin, John Weber, Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer and Arturo Interian. TM Productions and Take 5 Productions produce.
