History announced today that their hit scripted drama series, "Vikings," will return to Comic-Con International in San Diego with several exciting opportunities for fans, including a panel with exclusive season three footage, an interactive “On the Set” experience and autograph signing.

“On the Set with VIKINGS” will take place throughout the con, from Thursday, July 24 to Saturday, July 26 at a special location at 450 2nd Avenue. Fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at "Vikings" and have a starring role in their own custom video that can be shared on social media. From the moment fans enter the “back-lot” they will be treated as cast members. Upon entering, guests will create a character profile and choose a weapon of choice. Next, they will meet with hair and make-up artists to become transformed into a fierce Viking and be placed into three scenes complete with Vikings ships, battles, axes and villages. When fans have completed the experience they will have a :30 video to share via Twitter, Facebook or Vine.

A custom, limited edition VIKINGS comic book will be given to select fans who visit the “On the Set” activation on 450 2nd Avenue. In this exclusive comic book for SDCC, the character Floki entertains the Vikings with a humorous tale of Thor, Loki and other gods.

A cast autograph signing will be also held there on Friday, July 25 from 1 to 2 p.m. with Travis Fimmel (Ragnar), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Clive Standen (Rollo) and Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn) set to make appearances to sign autographs and take photos with fans.

The "Vikings" panel will then be held Friday, July 25 from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m. in Room 6A. The series returns to SDCC fresh from the season three set. Fimmel, Winnick, Standen and Ludwig along with Michael Hirst (writer/creator) and Julian Hobbs (VP Scripted & Non-Fiction Development & Programming, History) will reveal an exclusive sneak peek of the new season.
