vikings season 2 first look 'Vikings' Season 2 first look: Rollo prepares for war against Ragnar

The return of the History Channel’s series “Vikings” is not far off. The network released two photos from the upcoming Season 2 to tease fans with a look at the war that is coming.

In the above photo, Clive Standen‘s Rollo prepares to battle against his brother Ragnar. Standing alongside him is Thorbjorn Harr‘s Jarl Borg.

Preparations for the battle come from both sides, of course. Below, Travis Fimmel‘s Ragnar joins forces with Donal Logue‘s King Horik.

“What happens in Season 2 is that all of the major characters have to make huge choices and huge sacrifices. They realize whatever dreams they have, whatever expectations they have, will involve sacrifice, sometimes terrible sacrifices,” creator Michael Hirst told Zap2it at San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s Season 2 of an established show, it has to get bigger and better. The stakes get higher.”

The official synopsis for the season premiere of “Vikings” reads: “The battle begins between Ragnar and Rollo. This Viking clash pits brother against brother and there can only be one victor.” The series returns in February 2014.
