Barbarians, a German Netflix Original Series, caught the subscribers by guard in 20202 and soon rose to become one of the most watched originals of the year. The second season of Barbarians, which Netflix justifiably renewed, will premiere in October 2022. Here is all we know about Barbarians’ second season, including what to anticipate, when it will be filmed, and when Netflix will broadcast it. Jan Martin Scharf and Arne Nolting are the writers of the historical drama Barbarians, a German Netflix Original. On October 23, 2020, Netflix launched Season 1 in every country.
Barbarians has become the most watched German Netflix Original since it first debuted on the service (it was the overall but was topped by Blood Red Sky). With 37 million views in the first 28 days, Barbarians was the seventh most watched non-English language title on Netflix before Netflix ceased using the 2-minute statistic. Additionally, every top 10 ranking in the world for Netflix featured Barbarians.
What can fans expect from season 2 of Barbarians?
In light of a recent Netflix Germany release, we have a general notion of what season 2 will entail:
Ari is once more confronted with his Roman background a year after the Varus Battle, when the Roman forces have returned to Germania stronger than ever. To punish Ari for betraying Rome, his brother has sided with the Romans. Folkwin issues a dark challenge to the gods as Thusnelda and Ari work to rally the tribes against Rome.
The Barbarians first season finale left a lot to be explored. We also know what to anticipate from a prospective second season because to history. The three Roman Legions were successfully fought by the Germanic tribes under one banner thanks to Arminius and Thusnelda. The ambush was a huge success, and the Roman Empire suffered a humiliating loss. It is more likely than not that Arminius and Thusnelda will be crowned King and Queen of the tribes as they celebrate a significant victory.
Conflict close to home is often inevitable. Thusnelda’s father is plotting with Hadgan, her previous betrothed. They plan to strike when Arminius is least expecting it and seize control for themselves.
The conflict with Rome is far from done, and there will be many more battles in the future, according to history. While Arminius and the Germanic tribes are busy eradicating the remaining Romans east of the Rhine, Tiberius, the Emperor of Rome, is planning another army. More legions of Romans will be on their way to battle Arminius, led by Germanicus.
Folkwin has become estranged from the duo after nearly becoming a Roman slave and losing Thusnelda to Arminius. Despite Arminius’ pledge to make Folkwin a prince if crowned king, the latter saw it as an insult and declared his intention to assassinate Arminius if crowned Germanic King. Folkwin represents a wild card in Arminius’ desire. Folkwin is the reason Arminius is still alive, and he was the one who spread the myth that Thusnelda was connected to the gods. Both actions resulted in his ex-best friend and ex-lover marrying, uniting the tribes, and maybe becoming the next king and queen.
