The highly awaited second season of Vinland Saga will begin streaming on Netflix every week in early 2023, much to the fans’ joy. The first season of the series only recently debuted on the service in July 2022. Based on Makoto Yukimura’s manga Vinrando Saga, the historical-drama television series Vinland Saga is produced in Japan. Manga serialisation started in Weekly Shnen Magazine in April 2005 and quickly transferred to Monthly Afternoon. The anime’s first season’s animation was done by WIT Studio, but for its second season, Studio MAPPA—the animators behind brilliant shows like Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen—will take over.
The events of the Vinland Saga take place at the height of Viking dominance in Europe, and they include King Cnut the Great’s ascension to the English throne and the establishment of his North Sea Empire. Young Icelandic adventurer Thorfinn, whose father was killed by mercenaries, works for the mercenaries for the sole goal of exacting retribution against them. Thorfinn’s genuine aspiration is to sail over the ocean and arrive in Vinland, a place of happiness.
When will Netflix release Vinland Saga season 2?
Updates on the anime’s official website indicated that, with the exception of China, Netflix will stream Vinland Saga season 2 globally. It has also been revealed that Crunchyroll will stream the show in every country besides Asia. As a result, streaming rights will be split between Netflix and Crunchyroll in the US. On January 9th, 2023, Japan will start to broadcast the second season of Vinland Saga. Netflix has never screened anime outside of Asia, thus it is still unknown when the first Vinland Saga episodes will be available on the service. Prior to now, there had been a little delay for each weekly anime show that Netflix had obtained a licence for, ranging from a few days to a few weeks.
As a result of simulcasting, Crunchyroll may be able to see episodes before Netflix. But we’re still waiting for Netflix to provide the precise release date for Vinland Saga season 2. The wiki states that Netflix has the streaming rights for the anime’s English dub by VSI. This implies that the English dub might be released later in the year if VSI offers one soon after the Japanese broadcast’s release. We are currently awaiting Netflix and Studio Mappa’s official confirmation.
