The German series Barbarians landed on Netflix last fall with a mighty warrior’s cry. thrusting audiences into the struggle between the Roman empire and the Germanic tribes fighting to retain sovereignty over their land. We’ve patiently been waiting for Barbarians season 2 since news of the show’s renewal but how much longer do fans have until it arrives?
We left our three main players—Arminius, Thusnelda, and Folkwin Wolfspeer—in the aftermath of the Battle of Teutoburg Forest. It was a bloody exchange that set the trio on a treacherous path, one full of lies and betrayal.
When the series picks back up, they’ll each be dealing with a new political landscape. A landscape they helped forge with their literal blood, sweat, and tears. But the decisions they made to rise to power and defeat their enemies are liable to break the fragile alliances they’ve built.
Not to mention, Rome’s defeat can’t possibly be a victory left unchecked. An empire doesn’t crumble after one lost battle; it usually takes prolonged warfare.
When is Barbarians season 2 coming to Netflix?
Only time, a glimpse into history, and a new season will tell what comes next on Barbarians, so here’s what we know about a season 2 release date.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely Barbarians season 2 will be out this year. While the series premiered in October 2020, the likelihood of a similar release time for the second season decreases the further we move into 2021. There’s yet to be an announcement of when filming is set to commence for the next leg of the series.
What’s on Netflix has posited that if shooting were to begin in the summer for the second season then fans could be looking at a 2022 release date which is the best case scenario.
Hopefully, we’ll know more soon about Barbarians season 2. We’ll keep you posted on the latest news about the show including a confirmed release date.
