Description:

Vikings is a Canadian-produced historical drama examining the daily lives of Scandinavian Norsemen who explored and conquered Europe during the late 8th and early 9th centuries. The series is filmed in Ireland and airs on the American cable network History.

The main focus of Vikings is Ragnar Lodbrok, played by Travis Fimmel, and his family and crew. A Norse farmer and Viking warrior, Lodbrok wants nothing more but to explore the uncharted world outside of his home. Despite disagreements with his local chieftain Earl Haraldson, portrayed by Gabriel Byrne, Lodbrok decides to venture west for new adventures.

Along with his ship-building friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), Lodbrok ushers in a new age of Viking seafaring with vessels capable of navigating the rough and chilly waters of the northern seas. He then assembles a crew that includes his wife Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), who is a shieldmaiden and warrior, and Lodbrok's brother Rollo (Clive Standen). After their first successful foray into England, Lodbrok and his warriors capture an Anglo-Saxon monk named Athelstan (George Blagden) who joins the Vikings in their adventures, despite the clash between their beliefs.

In addition to the series' elements of action and adventure, Vikings is also about family relationships and how they can fall apart during times of success. For chieftain Haraldson, fissures in his leadership began to emerge as Lodbrok continues to ignore his demands while his wife Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig) may not be as faithful as she claims. While this goes on, Lodbrok's has his own problems in the form of Rollo, who seethes with jealousy over his brother's successes.

Created and executive produced by Michael Hirst, Vikings is produced by Eliza Mellor and Steve Wakefield and distributed by MGM Television. The program premiered on America's History network on March 3, 2013. Nine episodes of the series will air during its first season.
