The Storm Is Coming
The second half of season 5 of VIKINGS continues with the arrival of a
legendary Viking, the famous Duke Rollo (Standen), who causes further upheaval
in a Kattegat still reeling from Ivar the Boneless (Anderson) becoming its King.
As Bjorn (Ludwig) and Lagertha flee Ivar's murderous 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.
Critic Reviews For Vikings: Season 5
- “While it may lack the budget or the big names of that show, Vikings
nonetheless still engages, entertains and enthralls, thanks to a winning cast,
grounded-in-history plotlines and bloody battles and sexy moments that push the
boundaries.” – Mark Trammell , TV Equals
- *"Michael Hirst's decision to balance the psychological intrigue of
Lagertha and Floki's
situations with the actions of Ivar and his Christian foes gets the story off
to a magnificent start."* – Dave Vitagliano , Den of Geek
