What time is Barbarians II coming to Netflix?
Barbarians II is set to release Friday, Oct. 21, on Netflix. The streaming service will add the show to its catalog at 12 a.m. PT / 3 a.m. ET. Though it’s a pretty late night for those on the east coast, the next day is Friday. You’ll have the weekend to sleep in and finish the season!
Season 2 picks up one year after the Varus Battle. The Roman troops have returned to Germania stronger than ever, and Ari is confronted with his Roman past once more. His brother has joined the Roman side to punish Ari for his betrayal of Rome. While Thusnelda and Ari join forces to unite the tribes against Rome, Folkwin ominously challenges the gods.
Barbarians II debuts on Oct. 21 on Netflix.
