Vikings Season 2 Comic-Con Trailer. The History Channel‘s Vikings: Season 2 TV show trailer from the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con stars Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Gustaf Skarsgård, Donal Logue, and Thorbjørn Harr. Vikings‘ plot synopsis: “The HISTORY® original series Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.
But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar’s brother Rollo (Clive Standen), a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously.”
On the plot and some of the new characters in season 2 of Vikings:
Based on online articles and audition videos for roles being cast for Vikings season 2:There will be a time jump of several years.
The regular role of Ragnar’s son Bjorn will now be played by Alexander Ludwig, who played Cato in ‘The Hunger Games.’
Linus Roache will play the regular role of King Ecbert of Wessex.
The Vikings land in Wessex. (There was an audition video for the role of King’s messenger, and he announces to the king that the Northmen have come ashore in Wessex.).
Ragnar and Bjorn are separated for a long period of time, but are reunited, and Bjorn talks with his father about the good times they’ve shared and how happy he is that he is that both Ragnar and Lagertha are there together with him. (This information is from an audition video for the part of Bjorn.)
Lagertha remarries, to a wealthy earl. (There was an audition video for an earl who is Bjorn’s stepfather. In the scene, Bjorn tells his stepfather that he wants to go live in a cabin in the mountains by himself, so that he can test himself and learn what is essential to life, but his stepfather refuses.)
The footage below would suggest that the time jump does not happen immediately as the war seems to start off near or at where last season ended. Season 2 of Vikings is still in production.
