In the trailer for the final season, Oleg can be heard saying: “I have decided to treat your arrival here as a sign Ivar the Boneless. I have ordered the construction of a great fleet, for the invasion of Scandinavia.

“And you can help and be avenged upon your brothers. The Rus are coming.”

Speaking to Variety, show creator Michael Hirst revealed fans will see a lot more of Ivar in the final series.

He said: “There have been some comments that Ivar is a little two-dimensional and that he hasn’t got any secrets left, or that he’s not as interesting as Ragnar was. The fact is that we’re going to learn a lot more about Ivar in season six.

“We’re going to see other aspects of his character and things we didn’t expect from him. I’m very pleased with the way his character deepens and changes.“

Vikings fans are also hoping to find out if Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) is alive or dead.

In season five, Floki became trapped in an Icelandic cave and his whereabouts have remained unknown ever since.

Fears Folki will not survive were heightened when Skarsgard hinted at his character’s impending death in the new series.

Skarsgard shared a photo of Bjorn Ironside with his 831,000 followers.

He captioned the photo: “Who’s ready for season six? Floki might not have made it out of the cave but I’m as excited as the rest of you to follow the fates of all the other characters! Hail King Björn! Premieres on Dec 4!’

Judging by the trailer for season six, Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) have not given up on finding Floki alive, and may even travel to Iceland to find him.

For Ragnar’s widow, Lagertha (Kathryn Winnick) she will be trying to live a much quieter and normal life in the final season but her new life is compromised when a new enemy attacks her homeland.

Speaking to TV Line, Hirst said: “I always knew how Vikings would end and, after 89 episodes, I truly believe the saga of Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons has been told and we are leaving our beloved fans with the proper and definitive ending they so deserve.

“Although it is bittersweet, there are still 20 episodes left and the most ambitious and intensely emotional episodes are still to come.”
