History has released another promo and some "meet-the-character" videos for its upcoming scripted drama "Vikings," which launches March 3.
It's the network's first scripted series after dabbling in the format with the miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys" last year. "Vikings" explores the 8th century warriors who, as you can see in the promo above, sailed west from Scandinavia to attack what is now Britain and France. Travis Fimmel, Gabriel Byrne, Katheryn Winnick, Jessalyn Gilsig, Clive Standen, George Blagden and Gustaf Skarsgard star.
In the character videos below, we learn more about the brother Rollo (Standen); the monk Athelstan (Blagden); the visionary Floki (Skarsgard); the warrior Lagertha (Winnick); the ruler Earl (Byrne), and the ancient seer. One video even proves that underneath his character's pelts and leather, Fimmel still has that smokin' "Tarzan" body.
Check out the "Vikings" photo gallery.
