“Vikings” Last Raid Comes to SDCC 2020 [At Home]

We are heartbroken to type the words “last raid” for one of our absolute favorite shows, HISTORY’s “Vikings.” Such a staple and mainstay of our convention life for the last several years, saying goodbye won’t be easy, but we’re so happy we’ll have the chance.

Announced as part of Friday, July 24th’s San Diego Comic Con 2020 At Home virtual panel schedule, “Vikings: A Look Back with The Lothbroks” panel sounds perfect.

Showrunner and sole writer for the entire series Michael Hirst will join fan favorites Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Alex Ludwig (Bjorn Ironside), Clive Standen (Rollo) and Jordan Patrick Smith (Ubbe) to discuss their favorite moments from the past six and a half seasons, favorite fan interactions during Comic-con and what makes Vikings so extraordinary.  

You’ll be able to watch the panel here when it goes live at 11am PST.
