Suddenly throwing cannibalism into the mix in the last season would be grisly yet surprisingly fitting for the grim historic series.
Peter Franzen, who plays Harald on the series, acknowledged that his historical counterpart simply died of old age.
However, for the more fictitious show for History, he had a simple request: “Of course I would like him to pick up a sword and go into battle blazing, then just get hacked to pieces.”
It surely wouldn’t be a complete season of Vikings without someone getting dismembered.
Vikings season 6 airs on History on Wednesdays and on Thursday on Amazon Prime.
