vikings series four

The fifth series of 'Vikings' will get its UK premiere on Thursday on Amazon Prime Video. New episodes will drop every Thursday, less than 24 hours after they air on History in the US.

Episodes will continue to air every week until the midseason finale in January.

The historical drama follows Ragnar Lothbrok and his band of viking brothers as they rampage their way over the high seas.

Series five starts with Ivar the Boneless asserting his leadership over the Great Heathen Army, while Lagertha reigns as Queen of Kattegat. Ivar murders his brother Sigurd, which sets up some vicious battles to come, while Ragnar's sons plot their next moves after avenging their father's death.

But that's not all. Bjorn follows his destiny into the Mediterranean Sea, while Floki, who is suffering following the loss of his wife Helga, takes to the seas submitting himself to the will of the gods.

The show was created by Michael Hirst ('The Tudors'), and stars Gabriel Byrne, George Blagden, Travis Fimmel and Jessalyn Gilsig.
