[BRIGHTCOVE "4048718037001" "" "" "auto"] The rise of Ragnar is nearly upon us.
The History Channel's hit is back for a brand new season, and the Vikings now have a new king.
In a clip of the season 3 premiere, we see the newly appointed Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and his son Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) discussing their next raid on the shores of Wessex.
"I feel my blood warming," Bjorn says of claiming the land that King Ecbert (Linus Roache) promised. "I want to fight, I want to raid."
