Vikings season six part two was expected to air in December 2020 and fans have figured out King Alfred (played by Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) will be making a comeback. At the end of the first half of season six, Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) joined forces with Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) to launch an attack on the Scandinavian Vikings. Fans are wondering whether Alfred the Great will defeat Ivar and the Vikings in the second half of season six.
The first half of season six left fans on the edge of their seats as the Rus Vikings invaded Scandanavia during an attack led by Ivar, his brother Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) and Prince Oleg.
There were a number of catastrophic blows in the final episode as King Harald (Peter Franzén) was injured as was Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig).
With their brother Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) in Iceland on a mission to discover new settlements, Ivar and Hvitserk had an open window to try and take down Bjorn.
However, Bjorn managed to survive the seemingly fatal blow, and he shocked fans when he appeared in the teaser for season six part B.
With Bjorn now as weak as ever, he may call on the help of King Alfred, who had once been familiar with his father Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel).

King Alfred had not been seen in season six, so when fans heard of his return, they were excited to see what he has in store.
His character is based on the real Saxon king, Alfred the Great, who ruled the Anglo-Saxons from the years 886 to 899.
Season six may well introduce the concept of Danelaw, which came as a result of Alfred defeating Vikings at the Battle of Edington in 878.
The king was known to have led many battles against Vikings while he was on the throne, including during an attempt to drive out the Great Heathen Army led by Ivar the Boneless in 868.
While the king was at war he experienced a mix of victories and defeats, so fans will be keen to find out what happens to him in the impending battle.
The real King Alfred died of an unexplained illness, so hopefully, the fictional version will not be killed off in battle.
