at .

Bigger, badder, bloodier than ever!

That's what we can expect from Vikings Season 4 when it premieres on The History Channel on February 18 at 10/9c. 

Like other networks, The History Channel knows a good thing when it has it, and Vikings will air ten episodes concurrently beginning in February, and the remaining ten will air at a later date. Still, good news is good news, right?

Rollo Enters the Throne Room - Vikings

They've kindly provided us with a synopsis for Vikings Season 3 for those who need the refresher.

It culminated with the extraordinary battle in Paris, where Ragnar seized victory from the jaws of defeat – but still returns to Kattegat dangerously ill. Thoughts of his death galvanize the forces who seek to succeed him as king, including his wife Queen Aslaug and his oldest son, Bjorn.

Meanwhile, Lagertha continues power struggles with her calculating, former second in command, Kalf; Rollo betrays his Vikings heritage by remaining in Frankia and Floki is seized for his brutal actions to the Christian priest Athelstan.

Joining the stellar cast this season is Peter Franzén (The Gunman) as King Harold Finehair, a complex character who seeks to be King of Norway and a potential threat to Ragnar; Jasper Pääkkönen (Jet Trash) as Halfdan The Black, King Harold’s violent younger brother; and Dianne Doan (Descendants) as Yidu, a completely different character within the world of the Vikings who fascinates Ragnar.

Alright! Who is ready for February to roll around now? If Ragnar is being fascinated, it looks like we don't have to worry about him dying any time soon. That's a relief.

Vikings Quotes

Ragnar: What do you see?
Bjorn: Power, the power of a king.
Ragnar: Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.

Ragnar: I have something to say. I did not become Earl because I aspired to be one. It came about because of other people's actions. And I did not become king out of ambition, but once again I had no choice as a result of other people's actions. But nonetheless, I am king. King Ragnar, that is my name. What does a king do Bjorn?
Bjorn: He rules.
Ragnar: Yes, good... he rules. And as a ruler, I have the last say. Me! Not you, not you and not you.
