According to a press release touting the show's return date, Season 2 "brings crises of faith, of power, of relationships," as Ragnar's (Travis Fimmel) indiscretions put his marriage to Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) in jeopardy and risk tearing him and his son apart. Law & Order alum Linus Roache joins the cast as Ecbert, King of Wessex, a man of strength, intelligence and undisguised ambition. The Hunger Games' Alexander Ludwig will also debut in Season 2 as Ragnar's smart and bold warrior son, Bjorn.
