LONDON — Amazon’s streaming service Lovefilm has inked a deal with MGM Television for the exclusive U.K. rights to the second season of Michael Hirst’s Norse epic “Vikings,” which airs on History in the U.S.

Lovefilm, which also had the rights to the first season of “Vikings,” will debut the second season Feb. 28. Each weekly installment in the 10-episode season will be available to stream the day after it broadcasts in the U.S.

Season two sees Norse warrior Ragnar Lothbrok use his new position as Earl to continue to pillage new kingdoms with his band of warriors.
