Vikings season 6: Will Lagertha die in the final series? The 5 big clues you missed | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Season six of Vikings is expected to be hitting screens in November this year. The new series marks the final outing for the historical series which has gone from strength-to-strength over the years. Vikings will again feature the main players of Lagertha (played by Katheryn Winnick), Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen), Björn Ironside (Alexandr Ludwig) and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård).

Season six will be rounding off the story neatly with the loose ends finally tied up as we bid farewell to the sons of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) once and for all.

However, there are fears Lagertha may not survive to the finale of the show after being a mainstay since season one.

Here are the five big clues that suggest the end could be nigh for the fearsome warrior.

1. Katheryn Winnick is directing episodes of season 6

Actress Winnick has been speaking about directing on season six of Vikings after being in front of the camera for the best part of six years.

The star shared a photo of her first day directing way back when last year in 2018, hinting less screen time for Lagertha and possibly her death.

She previously revealed she had helmed episode eight of season six.

On top of this, Lagertha is ageing so her life is nearing its end. Winnick addressed this previously at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, saying: “I’ll tell you one thing, in season six especially, I definitely embraced it and I’ve allowed myself, I spent a good three hours a day in prosthetics to allow Lagertha to change and I hope you enjoy that.”

2. Katheryn Winnick has been involved in a new project

Netflix recently dropped its martial arts extravaganza Wu Assassins which combines high octane action with fantasy.

Winnick has a big role in Wu Assassins as undercover cop Christine Gavin, who is part of the team taking on the villains of the series.

While the new project may simply suggest filming on Vikings has concluded, it could also suggest Lagertha has perished and is no longer part of the show,

Speaking about joining Wu Assassins, Winnick said in a behind-the-scenes clip: “When I read the script I thought it would be really epic.”

The star has a background in Taekwondo which helped her win the role.

3. Vikings creator Michael Hirst teased more deaths

The creator of Vikings Michael Hirst has previously alluded to more deaths in season six, which seems inevitable as the show is coming to an end.

He previously told the Radio Times the final season would see “significant deaths”, prompting questions about Lagertha’s fate.

However, he also said Lagertha always survived and would get herself out of any future scrapes. But fans will have to wait and see whether this will be the case in season six.

4. The prophecy

Perhaps one of the biggest clues is the prophecy Lagertha was foretold by the Seer (John Kavanagh) that she would die at the hands of one of Ragnar’s sons.

Speaking to TV Guide, she said of the deadly prediction: “I feel like since that prophecy, since that meeting with the Seer, I feel like she has gotten to a stage of her life that has a certain amount of peace.”

The star added: “She’s not acting out of fear. She’s not trying to change fate. If anything, she knows that’s how she’ll go: that one day, a son will kill her. A son of Ragnar will kill Lagertha.”

5. A leaked photo on Reddit

Vikings fans were sent into overdrive after a photo purporting from season six surfaced online.

The image in question turned up on Reddit and featured a burning Viking ship containing Lagertha’s body as she was sent to Valhalla in a common funerary rite.

Winnick poured further fuel on the fire after she reshaped in the image and simply captioned the snap: “Major Death Teased.”

Again, the star seemed to be implying her character would be meeting her maker at some point in the not-too-distant future.

Vikings season 6 will be returning to History and Amazon Prime later this year
