Check Out The Trailer For Season 4 Of Vikings

HISTORY’s hit drama series “Vikings” returns for a gripping fourth season led by Travis Fimmel, star of the upcoming film Warcraft, on Thursday, February 18 at 10 p.m. ET. The network has added four episodes to its initial 16 episode order. Beginning February 18, a new episode will air every Thursday for ten weeks with the remaining episodes to air later in the year.

Season three culminated with the extraordinary battle in Paris, where Ragnar (Fimmel) seized victory from the jaws of defeat – but still returns to Kattegat dangerously ill. Thoughts of his death galvanize the forces who seek to succeed him as king, including his wife Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) and his oldest son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) continues power struggles with her calculating, former second in command, Kalf (Ben Robson); Rollo (Clive Standen) betrays his Vikings heritage by remaining in Frankia and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) is seized for his brutal actions to the Christian priest Athelstan.

Joining the stellar cast this season is Peter Franzén (The Gunman) as “King Harold Finehair,” a complex character who seeks to be King of Norway and a potential threat to Ragnar; Jasper Pääkkönen (Jet Trash) as “Halfdan The Black,” King Harold’s violent younger brother; and Dianne Doan (“Descendants”) as “Yidu,” a completely different character within the world of the Vikings who fascinates Ragnar.

“Vikings” is the critically acclaimed series from creator and sole writer Michael Hirst (Academy Award® winning film Elizabeth and the Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated series “The Tudors”) and is a family saga that tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages.

Chuck Taylor Adds New Design To Their Classic Line

Have you checked out the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 “Souvenir Jacket” Collection? If not you should make sure that you do. The sneakers are available in two premium incarnations of the classic high-top model and draw creative references from the commemorative jackets known as “Sukajyan” that originated in post-WWII Japan.

Departing U.S. servicemen and women commissioned local Japanese craftsmen to produce unique items of clothing that they could take home as a memento of their time in Asia. The jackets were typically created by modifying existing garments or fabricated from excess parachute silk, embellishing simple Western silhouettes with ornate and vibrant embroidery that symbolized Eastern cultures – such as tigers, dragons, flowers and trees. American iconography completed the look with eagles, military regalia, local maps and squadron names featuring regularly. The trend spread to many other places in the Far East where U.S. troops were stationed, but it was the disruptive youth subcultures of the ‘60s that adopted the jackets as a defiant statement against mainstream conformity.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 “Souvenir Jacket” sneakers are offered in soft goat leather, as a seasonally relevant alternative to the lightweight silk and satin garments that inspired them. Bright crouching tigers adorn the black pair, while the dark blue is enhanced by an intertwined snake and skull pattern, with green and pink color pops. Both have contrasting satin linings while leather ankle patches, toecaps and rounded rope laces compliment the refined, rebellious look.

Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level.
