Vikings has been the biggest series in History Channel so far. The story follows the story of Lagnar Rothbrok (Travis Fimmel) and how the Vikings has started to conquer the world. The fourth season of the series will premiere this coming February 18, with additional cast on its list. 

Here's the latest on Vikings Season 4 Premiere Date, Spoilers, and News.

In a statement released last December 17, announced the additional 4 episodes and the release date of the initial first 10 episodes,

 "Vikings" returns for a gripping fourth season led by Travis Fimmel, star of the upcoming film Warcraft, on Thursday, February 18 at 10 p.m. ET. The network has added four episodes to its initial 16 episode order. Beginning February 18, a new episode will air every Thursday for ten weeks with the remaining episodes to air later in the year.

The statement also revealed some compelling stories bridging Vikings Season 3 to Season 4, and what could be expected when Vikings return this February,

Season three culminated with the extraordinary battle in Paris, where Ragnar (Fimmel) seized victory from the jaws of defeat - but still returns to Kattegat dangerously ill. Thoughts of his death galvanize the forces who seek to succeed him as king, including his wife Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) and his oldest son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) continues power struggles with her calculating, former second in command, Kalf (Ben Robson); Rollo (Clive Standen) betrays his Vikings heritage by remaining in Frankia and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) is seized for his brutal actions to the Christian priest Athelstan.

Finally, the network revealed the latest character additions when Viking returns,

Joining the stellar cast this season is Peter Franzén (The Gunman) as "King Harold Finehair," a complex character who seeks to be King of Norway and a potential threat to Ragnar; Jasper Pääkkönen (Jet Trash) as "Halfdan The Black," King Harold's violent younger brother; and Dianne Doan ("Descendants") as "Yidu," a completely different character within the world of the Vikings who fascinates Ragnar.
