Vikings was one one of the most expensive productions that HISTORY had undertaken in recent memory, with over US$40 million to produce the first season.
And it paid off as well, with Vikings fairing well with critics, and topping all broadcast networks in the US among the 18-to-49 year old demographics when the season premiered.
Fans of the norsemen-inspired show can now look forward to the second season, which will see Ragnar's struggles with the burden and power of him being an Earl.
This season will see some drastic changes in the relationships between the characters, with death and heartbreak shown in some teasers to the new season. If you had invested time in researching on the actual lore and history of the Norsemen, then you may already know what I mean. But if not, here's a teaser from last year's Comic-Con.
To drum up hype for the new season, HISTORY Asia had asked fans to complete 3 tasks to unlock the date, month, and time of the premiere.
While I am uncertain of the exact date, the premiere date has already been set for 27 Feburary, 10pm in the US. I can only assume that the premiere date in Asia will be similar.
[Update: Since this posting, the date has already been released as 28, and as such the month and date so follow as my prediction above, you heard it hear first!]
