“Vikings” Season 4 will be intriguing as rumors are swirling that Queen Aslaug played by actress Alyssa Sutherland is going to die as she has been cast to join another series entitled “The Mist.”
The Hollywood Reporter noted that Sutherland will play the role of Eve Cunningham, a wife, and mother who will do anything to protect her teenage daughter from unknown dangers lurking both inside and outside the mist while facing down her past. The series is based on Stephen King’s 1980 novel of the same title that tells the harrowing story about a seemingly harmless mist that seeps into a small town which creates a huge chaos.

Sutherland’s character Aslaug is said to be on a collision course when the second half of “Vikings” Season 4 returns. And with Sutherland’s cast in ‘The Mist” fans and viewers can expect is she would make a return for next season or will her character die in the battle for supremacy over Kattegat against Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).
“Vikings” Season 4 is slated to make its return this month, but the show’s trailers suggests that it will make it return this fall in History Channel.
