History often serves as the background for amazing cinematic moments in television and film. To name a few, we may point to masterworks such as ‘Spartacus,’ ‘The Tudors,’ ‘The Last Kingdom,’ and ‘Vikings.’ Netflix’s German original ‘Barbarians’ joins this league of audacious historical dramas.
It recounts the epic Battle of Teutoburg Forest – a historical turning point. Naturally, the first installment of the series immediately attracted lovers of brutal, gruesome, and action-packed docu-dramas inspired by history. Now, spectators wait with bated breath for information about the second season. Now, let’s dive right in!
Barbarians Season 2 Release date
‘Barbarians’ season 1 launched on Netflix on October 23, 2020. It is divided into six episodes. The first season chronicles the events leading up to and after the Battle of Teutoburg Forest.
The program has enormous potential for continuation in terms of substance. History buffs will be aware that the previous fight significantly impacted the Roman conquest’s later plans.
Once again, the drama’s first installment drew a massive audience. And this was entirely predictable. The streamer has never been incorrect with its historical endeavors.
Considering everything, we are certain that Netflix will announce a renewal shortly. If that occurs in the next months, we may anticipate the release of ‘Barbarians’ season 2 in 2022.
What Could the Barbarians Season 2 Plot Be About?
‘Barbarians’ is a historical play set during the Roman Imperial Campaign in Germania in 9 A.D. Publius Quinctilius Varus commands three Roman legions and their allies.
On the other hand, Arminius, a Germanic Chieftain, is well-versed in Roman military techniques. He leads and unifies the Germanic tribes in their struggle against Southern invaders.
The first season concludes with a bloody conflict in which the tribes beat the Romans in the Battle of Teutoburg Forest. Arminius delivers Varus’ severed head to Maroboduus, the Marcomanni’s ruler, offering anti-Roman cooperation.
It concludes the first excursion. And the next season should begin-up where the previous one left off, with Maroboduus rejecting the offer and sending the head to Rome for burial.
Additionally, Season 2 will explore Thusnelda’s relationship narrative with Arminius and Folkwin. We do know, though, that the first season concludes with her pregnant with Arminius’ child.
And Runa forecasts that the Gods would punish imposters in their unique manner (note: Thusnelda had been claiming to be a seer although she is not). Thus, what will become to her unborn child?
According to history, this is sad. Again, long-time friends Arminius and Folkwin may fight for the same lady. It will be intriguing to watch how season 2 resolves this love triangle.
