'Vikings' Wraps Filming on Season 2 in Ashford Studios
13 Nov 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
Ragnar and his troops form a shield wall against the English.
Hundreds of Irish extras garbed as Scandinavian barbarians have laid their battle-axes to rest and wiped the last of the fake blood from their beards as the History Channel’s ‘Vikings’ has completed filming on another season at Ashford Studios, Wicklow.

The series is an Irish Canadian co-production between Octagon Films, Take 5 Productions and World 2000 Entertainment, with season two set to premiere on the History Channel in the US in March 2014.

Although RTÉ had featured ‘Vikings’ season one in publicity material for its Autumn 2013 schedule, it is now likely to air on RTÉ early in the New Year, according to an RTÉ spokesperson.

Principal photography on the second set of ten episodes wrapped on Friday 8th November, according to producer James Flynn of Octagon Films - with series creator Michael Hirst promising fans at Comic Con 2013 that the new episodes would boast ‘more armies; more Viking ships.’

Among the Irish crew members who have worked on 'Vikings' are director Ciarán Donnelly; line producer Séamus McInerney; production designer Tom Conroy; costume designer Joan Bergin; and make-up and hair designers Tom McInerney and Dee Corcoran.

‘Vikings’ was the first production to use the newly-built €22m Ashford Studios, in Ballyhenry, Co Wicklow, when it began production in April of last year.

A season one battle sequence between the Vikings and English can be viewed below:
