Vikings season 4 concluded on February 1, 2017, and since then, fans of the hit TV series have been eagerly waiting for the next season to arrive. The previous season was a rather amazing one as it was filled with surprises and revealed a lot of stuff. This is the very reason why fans are currently craving for more. In March 2016, History did confirm that Vikings will be renewed for another reason, but no specific release date was provided for it.
While fans wait for the next season to arrive, many rumors and speculations regarding what the next season will feature surfaced, thus giving an increase to its hype. Even the creator of the series has been busy revealing stuff about it from time to time to keep fans hyped up for it. Recently, Vikings’ creator Michael Hirst held an AMA session on Reddit where he revealed some stuff about Ivar the Boneless.
Michael Hirst Talks About Ivar’s Evil Nature
During the AMA session on Reddit, a fan asked Hirst about why Ivar the Boneless is evil, to which the creator replied by saying that he isn’t actually evil by nature. According to him, the thing which makes him evil is not his nature but is his current condition. The creator revealed that Ivar is suffering from the brittle bone syndrome, a disease because of which a person keeps on breaking his bones every day, and this makes the person angry.
“Well, he’s, in a way, not evil,” said Hirst. “He has brittle bone syndrome. It’s a terrible disease and what we’ve learned is [that] people suffering from this syndrome [are] at risk for breaking their bones every day, [and] they’re angry.”
Dealing with brittle bone syndrome is the very reason why Ivar has become what he is now. Hirst further revealed that Ivar always wants to stay ahead of everyone, and he wishes to be better than everyone, even his brothers. To do that, Ivar crosses his limits. “He knows that he was left outside to die by Ragnar, and he’s always trying to prove himself,” said Hirst while talking about Ivar. “He doesn’t recognize boundaries.”
Lothbrok Brothers To Go Against Each Other In Vikings Season 5
Along with this, Hirst previously revealed that the Lothbrok are going to go against each other in Vikings season 5. According to him, a battle between the brothers will take place as soon as one of them tries to claim the throne their father left behind. On the other hand, the person who currently wishes to become the King of whole Norway, Harald is said to become a big threat for Lagertha. He is going to try to take her throne for himself. Whatever the case is, the next season of Vikings is going to be filled with action.
