With the previous approval from Michael Hirst, the Vikings will head towards the Mediterranean and Spain, later on, in season 4 and through into season 5.

Is it likely Meyers will play a Spanish character? As per an essay by Victor Manuel on Viking missions, the Vikings reach Spanish grounds almost around the time of civil battle between Charles the Bald and his nephew Peppin II. Could Jonathan Rhys Meyers possibly play one of these characters? Only time will reveal says Inquisitr.

Michael Hirst is the creator and sole writer of “Vikings” which is a family legend that tells the amazing story of raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages, their lives and great adventures.
