The History Channel has not yet committed to a second season of Vikings. Nevertheless, the network brought its main stars, Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha Lothbrok) and George Blagden (Athelstan) onto the WonderCon stage on Saturday to the exuberant cheers of fans. Set in Medieval Times, Vikings follows the story of a charismatic farmer, Ragnar, who is obsessed with traveling into the unchartered waters of the western seas. Ragnar’s efforts are opposed by his narrow minded, paranoid leader, Earl Haraldson. The battle of wills between the two men forms the central conflict of the season.

In the interviews below, TV Equals spoke with Winnick and Blagden about what motivates their characters and what viewers may expect over the remainder of the season. If you haven’t yet started watching Vikings, you should catch up on the first four episodes on the show’s website. With its fan base continuing to grow in numbers and enthusiasm, you can expect that at this summer’s Comic-Con, you will seek less drab Dothraki vestments and more eyeliner smeared, shield maidens.

Vikings airs on The History Channel on Sundays at 10/9 central.
