However, the decision of Fimmel to go into movies was pretty much confirmed when showrunner Michael Hirst was quoted in a recent interview that Season 4 will see a shifting of focus on “Vikings.”
Instead of concentrating heavily on King Ragnar Lothbrok and his adventures, the upcoming Season 4 will focus on Ragnar’s sons, particularly Bjorn.
In addition to Bjorn, another possible successor to Ragnar Lothbrok, is his brother King Rognvaldsson Rollo, played by Clive Standen.
But since Bjorn hates his uncle to the guts, it is possible that he and Rollo may have to fight it out themselves to determine who will be the next leader of the Vikings.
Rollo, however, has plenty of things running on his mind right now, but he has no plans of becoming the leader of the Vikings so it is likely that the next leader of Kattegat is Bjorn.
There are reports that Bjorn will actually rally his men against Rollo who has betrayed the Vikings by siding with France and King Charles in exchange for the promise of land, riches, and marriage to Charles’ daughter.
However, before King Ragnar finally bids his adieu on “Vikings,” he is expected to meet a new love in the upcoming season, which rumors say would by Yidu, played by Chinese actress Dianne Doan.
