History Channel’s hit show Vikings invades the biggest convention of the year, San Diego Comic-Con, later this month with never-before-scene footage, exclusive merchandise, autographs, a panel, and a “Vikings Viper’s Den” where fans will get to feel what it’s like to be in an abyss filled with snakes.
Check out all the details here below, along with the teaser video for the Vikings Season 4 trailer, which will make its debut exclusively at this year’s SDCC.
The teaser video, which is a snippet of what will be shown to attendees of the Vikings panel at the Con, is a series of flashes of faces, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) Lothbrok’s true family – his four sons and Lagertha (Kathryn Winnick), and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard). Are these 7 faces competing to be king? The video ends on Ragnar alone, as usual, with a long white beard, looking very shaman-ish. It seems 10 years away does not make the heart grow fonder towards him in Kattegat.
SDCC begins Wednesday, July 20, 2016 for “Preview Night” and runs through Sunday, July 24, 2016. The A&E Networks will present their panels on Friday, July 22, beginning with A&E’s Bates Motel, where the cast and crew will reveal exclusive content from the upcoming fifth season from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in Room 6A. The Vikings panel, which will debut a new Season 4 trailer, will take place the same day from 5:45pm to 6:45pm in Room 6BCF with Travis Fimmel (“Ragnar”), Katheryn Winnick (“Lagertha”), Clive Standen (“Rollo”), Alexander Ludwig (“Bjorn”), Gustaf Skarsgard (“Floki”), and Michael Hirst (writer/creator) in attendance.
Along with the aforementioned panels, fans will have a chance to meet the stars during a scheduled autograph session, and attendees can also visit the “Viper’s Den” experience on the convention floor in Booth #4215 for the duration of the Con.
Vikings returns with Season 4 in 2017 on The History Channel.

“VIKINGS” VIPERS DEN – San Diego Convention Center – Booth #4215 – July 20-24
There were many ways to die during the Vikings era, however the most brutal and sinister form of death was being thrown into a snake pit. HISTORY assimilates the torture and terror with the “Vikings” Vipers Den on the SDCC floor. Fans will experience the fear of being surrounded by real snakes in a dark, dank abyss with no immediate escape.
Attendees will have their screams and writhing captured on camera in sharable gifs and receive a “Vikings” viper cuff as a token of their triumph over death. Throughout the five day booth activation, there will be opportunities for fans to enter for chances to win tickets to the “Vikings” cast panel or the “Vikings” cast autograph session, both on Friday, July 22.
SDCC “VIKINGS” EXCLUSIVES – Also available to fans while supplies last is a custom “Vikings” limited edition comic book from a story created by Michael Hirst, exclusively for SDCC and a “Vikings” drinking horn.
