German Netflix original Barbarians (also known as Barbaren in Germany) surprised viewers in 20202 and swiftly rose to the top of the year’s most popular originals. Barbarians have been renewed for a second season and will premiere on Netflix in the fall of 2022, as previously announced.
What do we know about Barbarians’ upcoming second season? Here’s everything we know so far, from what to expect when the show will be filmed, and when it will be available on Netflix.
Jan Martin Scharf and Arne Nolting are the minds behind the German historical drama Barbarians, a Netflix Original from Germany. In every country, Netflix began streaming Season 1 on October 23, 2020.
Barbarians, a German Netflix Original series that debuted a few months ago, has quickly grown in popularity (it was the overall but was topped by Blood Red Sky).
Barbarians had 37 million views in the first 28 days before Netflix ceased utilizing the 2-minute statistic, making it the ninth most watched non-English language video on Netflix.
On Netflix, Barbarians made it into every top 10 list in the world.
Barbarians Season 2 Cast
Some of the cast members from Barbarians season 1 are likely to return for the second season. This time around, it’s also safe to expect that there will be a considerable amount of new characters introduced. Whoever joins the fan-favorite cast of great players will be exciting to watch.
Arminius will most definitely return for Barbarians season 2 in the hands of Laurence Rupp. And it wouldn’t be proper without Jeanne Goursaud’s reappearance as Thusnelda.
Additionally, David Schütter, Bernhard Schütz, Eva Verena Müller, Jeremy Miliker and Sergej Onopko are all expected to return for Barbarians season 2 in some capacity.
Barbarians Season 2 Plot
Season 2 will need to go into a slew of new territory. Thusnelda and Arminius succeeded in uniting the Germanic tribes and defeating the three Roman legions. The Roman Empire suffered a terrible defeat as a result of the successful ambush.
Arminius and Thusnelda will most likely be crowned king and queen of the tribes as a result of the triumph. However, the abyss is only a short distance away.
Hagan and Thusnelda’s father is planning a major onslaught. The two plan to strike when Arminius least expects, so they may seize control of the organization.
Arminius and Thusnelda face a much greater threat than the menace posed by their own families. But despite their victory, the conflict with Rome is far from being won. When Germanic tribes and Arminius force the Romans east of the Rhine, Tiberius is putting up another army.
Germanicus’s army will grow in size and strength as Arminius faces more and more Romans. Folkwin Wolfspeer, on the other hand, may suffer a painful betrayal as a result of his unfortunate experiences.
When Folkwin nearly became a slave to the Romans and so lost Thusnelda to Arminius, he distanced himself from the two characters.
Thusnelda and Arminius’ success can be attributed to Folkwin. That Thusnelda was somehow linked to the gods, and that Arminius is still alive, was all thanks to him.
In the present, Folkwin’s ex-girlfriend is going to marry his ex-best buddy, who could become the Queen and King in the process.
Folkwin considers Arminius’ promise to elevate him to the rank of prince an insult. If he becomes Germanic King, he intends to assassinate Arminius.
Barbarians Season 2 Release Date
Netflix announced the release date for Barbarians 2 during Geeked Week. However, no specific date has been set for its release as of yet. It is to be released sometime between September and November of 2022.
