    Adam Copeland, former WWE Superstar Edge, is set for a recurring role in the upcoming fifth season of the hit History drama series Vikings.

    Copeland will play Ketill Flatnose, a fierce and brave warrior, chosen by Floki to be one of the leaders of the Viking party intent on traveling to Iceland to set up a community there. He joins Jonathan Rhys Meyers who was previously announced as joining the Season 5 cast.

    Copeland previously recurred on Syfy’s Haven and next will be seen in WWE’s action-thriller Interrogation.

    VIKINGS Renewed for Season 5, Jonathan Rhys Meyers Joins Cast


    [​IMG]

    The Vikings will fight for another season. History has renewed the Michael Hurst-created drama for a fifth season, the cable network announced Thursday. Additionally, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has joined the cast of the historical drama as a series regular. The 20-episode super-sized season will air in 2017. That episode count matches the current fifth season order.

    This season, Vikings has remained a top 10 cable drama series. It's the top telecast on Thursdays in all key demographics when factoring in three days of DVR with an average of 4.2 million total viewers, 2.1 million adults 25-54 and 1.9 million among adults under 50.

    Details on who Rhys Meyers will portray on the series are being kept under wraps. The Golden Globe-winning actor's credits include The Tudors and NBC's Dracula.

    For those that want their Vikings fix while the show is on a break, I will again suggest you try THE LAST KINGDOM.

    It's a really good show and will remind you how good Vikings was during the first two seasons.

    BTW, so we don't even have a premiere date for S4 Part 2?

    I didn't even know until today that all of S4 wasn't going to air together.

    Anyone else kind of surprised the History Channel hasn't tried to recreate their success with another show?

    I don't think they've even done a mini-series for a while now.

    That's weird. You'd think they'd have had this all worked out in the beginning and would be very clear about how this split season is going to work. Because I imagine that a lot of people are confused as fuck.

    So they split s4 into two halves? I just watched s4e10 last night and Direct TV had it listed as 'season finale'

    Great show btw, haven't posted in one of these threads yet. Been watching since the start of S1.

    edit - nvm saw the video in the first post.

    What topic can they do?
    PIrates, nope Starz has that.

    Maybe Rennaissance Italy, nope there is already a show about them popes, and Leonardo,

    Rome has been done to death. There is an East Asian show on Netflix already.

    Railroads check, cowboys have been done,

    I dont think there is a history topic left. Islam will not draw viewers unless in arab countries, but they may go to war if dont like the content. Hinduism, nah, Latin American Colonization, only in Latin america will they watch.

    Maybe Napoleonic era. But what person, and or what group will they focus that has international appeal?

    It is a remake, and they cannot do a full series, but it only appeals to a small demo.

    Another season of 20 after this one? In surprised there's that much more story to tell. Ragnar and Athelstan are the only complicated characters of the series, and Ragnar should be about done.

    Interesting to see who will take over the plotting and planning.

    This could go on for a while actually, even after Ragnar is gone. I do think I know how the series will end, though. Just read up on Ragnar and his sons. The exploits of Bjorn are very well documented.

    Granted, but 30 episodes is a lot.

    Im wondering if they will actually follow history faithfully. If they do then King Alla will kill Ragnar and his sons will exact revenge.

    Filming dates are pending on time estimates for the props department to make the parchment of Judith's scrolls age appropriately over the time jumps.

    If this show can do 20, why cant Game of Thrones do this? That way they can actually follow the books more closely, and not be the clusterfuck it is.

    Ivar was perfect. He's got this creepy menacing feel to him that will make his ambitious rise more compelling. Its not easy to make a cripple look badass.
