Vikings: Season 4 return date announced

Midseason premiere on November 30.

History’s popular TV series Vikings will return in just over two months’ time, with the second half of Season 4 set to premiere on Wednesday, November 30 at 9pm ET/PT.

The midseason return picks up after the epic encounter in Paris between Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and his brother Rollo (Clive Standen), and the major time-jump that provides a window into the next chapter in the Vikings’ journey.

The premiere will see Ragnar returning home to “handle unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert” and check on his sons, while Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) makes a play for power in Kattegat and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) sets off to explore the Mediterranean.

“This season is monumental and unlike anything we’ve ever done,” series creator Michael Hirst said in a statement, noting that Vikings follows an array of character stories that are inspired by real-world events and isn’t just “a story of one man, but a saga of Ragnar and his sons.”
