Fans of the History channel’s hit show Vikings were sent into meltdown after Freydis star Alicia Agneson posted huge news of her return to the show on Instagram.
The Vikings season six trailer briefly showed her return, but now fans can get a true look at her return to the show.
The post was captioned: “Who is she? What does she want? Where did she come from? Can’t wait for you all to see season six.
She asks the questions that fans have been desperate for the answers to.
The actress, whose character was killed in season five, teased her return with a surprise new look and got fans speculating as to who she is returning as.
The star is to return to the show as a completely new character, and will appear radically different.
One fan replied: “She’s the twin sister! Here for revenge.”
Another replied: “They made it a point to show Freydis dead on the bed. So we’ll be as shocked as Ivar when we see her alive and well in Rus. She is either family to Freydis or a doppelganger that will drive Ivar even more crazy.”
One fan believed she could be a very specific historical figure: “I’m guessing this is the wife of Oleg the prophet played by Danila Kozlovsky, the tyrant king of Rus. I bet money Ivar is going to fall for her because she looks like Freydis.”
Other fans were just happy to see the star return to the show: “The folks over at Vikings were smart to keep you around. I know this isn’t my Freydis but I am very excited to meet her, whoever she is. This mystery has been hyped for season six!”
She is clad in what appears to be Russian dress, teasing the direction of the show as it moves into Rus.
It raises the question of whether she will come across Ivar in her new role and what his reaction will be.
Also, will the character be of some relation to her old character Freydis, even though they would be culturally different?
Her previous character Freydis was strangled to death by husband Ivar the Boneless (played by Alex Høgh Anderson) in season five after she betrayed him.
Ivar had killed their son so Freydis decided to get revenge by revealing to Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), Hvitserk (Macro Ilso) and Harald (Peter Franzen) a secret entrance into Kattegat so they could invade.
They invaded and Ivar realised it was due to her betrayal and so he killed her.
Meanwhile, fans have been speculating on how Ragnar Lodbrok’s (Travis Fimmel) death could have been avoided.
They believe the key was his relationship with brother Rollo Sigurdsson (Clive Standen).
Also, fans believe he could return to the show in some capacity and could be in the form of a vision.
Fans will have to wait to find out who her character is and what impact she will have on the Vikings.
Vikings season six is due to arrive on History and Amazon Prime Video later on this year.
