Initially Vikings season 5 premiere was conceived as a screen adaptation of the ancient sagas that tell of the Viking raids on medieval England. The Main character was supposed to be the leader of the Vikings – a Ragnar Lothbrok who, as legend has it, was a direct descendant of Odin. However, the semi-legendary Ragnar considered the person, his life is known not so much, so the writers had a certain freedom of action. So there are other characters on the show. For example, it’s weird, but at the same time, a very talented master of the ship’s Flock.
And that it is Ragnar’s brother is Rollo. It is interesting that, apparently, is just this character was a real prototype, which chronicles called Hrolf. According to legend, he participated in the conquest of France, namely that part which is now called Normandy after the Vikings, who came from the North. So that was the ancestor Hrolf already quite real historical person – William the Conqueror, who managed to conquer Britain, and completely change the course of hiStory.
- As you know, in the past few years, the Scandinavian theme in the movies is a trend. The attention of the public attracted Scandinavian television projects – for example, the series The Bridge and Killing, the creativity of Swedish and Norwegian mythology was leaked even in the movie adaptation of the Marvel comic books about Thor. In the wake of this interest the Canadian-Irish historical series The Vikings season 5 premiere was shot. And he immediately became popular far beyond the borders of these countries;
- Unlike with many other projects, the creators of Vikings season 5 are trying to adhere to historical accuracy. So, some interest was provoked by authentic Viking tattoos ? However, the tattoos were the common practice among the Celts and Slavs and Vikings – from all the tribes of the pagan pre-Christian Europe;
- So the creators of the series, which strictly monitor compliance with costumes and weapons of the spirit of the era, in this case did not sinned against the truth. Especially that many Vikings tattoos in the series are associated with the mythology – such as the werewolf Fenrir and Ragnarok (the analogue of the Christian Apocalypse). Here and there, of course, the creators had to rely solely on the design assumptions – there are not many details about what kind of clothes worn by the Vikings at that time or what hairstyle would be the soldiers;
Curiously, the show hired mostly Irish Actors. But Flock is played by the Swedish actor Gustaf Skarsg?rd (the son of the famous actor Stellan Skaarsgard and the brother of Alexander Skaarsgard). That he had to train other Actors of the correct pronunciation of many words. But fencing had to be taught to all without exceptional performers;
- In Vikings season 5 premiere there are often used the natural locations instead of fake decorations (according to some estimates – up to 70% of the footage). However, they are filmed not in Sweden but in Ireland;
In March 2015, the HiStory Channel has announced that the series renewed for the fourth season consisting of 16 episodes.
