The second season of the historical drama television series Vikings premiered on 27 February 2014 on History in Canada, and concluded on 01 May 2014, consisting of ten episodes.
The series broadly follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew, and later those of his sons. The first season of the series begins at the start of the Viking Age, marked by the Lindisfarne raid in 793.
Four years later, Ragnar finally announces plans to raid England. Horik and Borg arrive, but his resentment leads Ragnar to break the pact with Borg. Ragnar accepts Rollo back into his family, but forbids him from raiding. The Seer tells Ragnar that his sons will be more famous than him. Ragnar and Horik’s men set sail for England, but a violent storm throws them off course. While exploring, they are ambushed by soldiers and several men are killed including one of Horik’s sons. Athelstan saves Ragnar’s life during the fight. They learn that they are in Wessex, which is ruled by King Ecbert, a man described as similar to Ragnar.
