Vikings season 6 may not be returning to History for many more months, but that isn’t stopping us from asking questions! We know that the History series has a lot of great content still to deliver, and we say that even knowing that there are many mysteries afoot. Take, for example, the uncertain status of Bjorn, whose life seemed to be very much in the balance on this past episode.

For the sake of this article, we want to focus on the possibility of some other characters finding their way back to the show. Take, for example, someone like Clive Standen’s Rollo or even Floki, whose fate seems to be very much unclear still after the great volcano incident in the past.
Speaking in a recent postmortem interview on the finale (to TV Guide), executive producer Michael Hirst said the following on the specific subject of a Rollo return:
My lips are sealed. I couldn’t possibly say. But it is certainly possible that there is a return for one or more of our original characters.
In general, you could take that quote and apply it to a number of familiar faces from the past. Rollo and Floki are at the top of our personal wishlist, though, mostly because there are some interesting story and nostalgia-related reasons to bring them back. (Of course, having a cameo from Ragnar or Lagertha could be interesting depending on the context, but those two characters are confirmed dead.) Rollo still has many stories still to tell within the history books, which is probably one of the reasons why there are folks clamoring for a spin-off. (It doesn’t seem like the follow-up series at Netflix will be about that, but we miss Standen as a part of the show’s universe.)
