Vinland Saga Season 2 Release Date: Everything We Know So Far!

After nearly a year of teasing, fans of the historical anime series ‘Vinland Saga’ are still waiting for the second season.

In Japan, an anime adaptation of Makoto Yukimura’s manga aired in 2019, with adequate source material for a second season. The account of Icelandic adventurer Thorfinn Karlsefni is told in ‘Vinland Saga,’ which is set during the Viking Age. He was the son of Thors, a famed ex-warrior who was killed by a band of mercenaries commanded by Askeladd during an ambush.

Shuhei Yabuta, the anime director, seemed to indicate that a second season was already in the works even before it was revealed.

The filmmaker posted a graphic of the three major characters from the ‘Vinland Saga’ in September 2020. Fans were quick to discover the runes written under each character, which the director described as a “little easter egg.” The words sea, son, and two are written in runes. Those who discovered the easter egg assumed the new season was finally in the works. The filmmaker, on the other hand, was eager to deny these hypotheses, claiming that “there is no deeper meaning.”

Abiru Takahiko, the animation director for ‘Vinland Saga,’ made a cryptic statement in March 2021, leading fans to believe (again) that season 2 of the anime is finally moving forward.

Takahiko claims he’s been sidetracked from work on ‘Attack on Titan,’ ‘The Ancient Magus Bride,’ and another project. Fans hypothesized that his “other work” is season 2 of ‘Vinland Saga.’ These were, however, just wild guesses at the time.

Then, in July 2021, the exciting news arrives for ‘Vinland Saga enthusiasts. ‘Vinland Saga’ has been renewed for a second season. A teaser clip including fragments from the new season was also included in the announcement. Check out the trailer below.

Thorfinn served under the group of mercenaries responsible for his father’s killing, vowing to get retribution when the time came.

The first season came to a close with a frenzy of events that left fans with conflicting feelings. Will there be a sequel to the anime? Here’s what we currently know.

We’ll keep an eye on future developments and update this section once we get an official release date for season 2 of ‘Vinland Saga.’

What Is The Possible Plot Of ‘Vinland Saga’ Season 2?

The first season came to a dramatic conclusion for each of the characters. Thorfinn has been hell-bent on avenging his father since his death. After a duel with Askeladd, he finally had the chance to revenge on his father’s death. Thorfinn, on the other hand, is not yet equal to the duty of catching his father’s killer, especially when his emotions and wrath get in the way. Askeladd, Thorkell, and Thorfinn had previously been hired by Danish Prince Canute. They banded together to depose King Sweyn and install Canute asking.

Askeladd felt trapped when the Danish king prepared to attack Wales. Askeladd beheaded King Sweyn and offered himself as a sacrifice so that Canute may claim the kingdom.

In the process, Askeladd died, and Thorfinn was taken aback by the death of the man he had vowed to avenge for so long. Before Thorfinn could injure the newly-crowned Canute, he was taken to an unknown destination.

When the anime returns, we should expect the second season to be true to the source material, with the story of Canute continuing.

After Canute is banished to a remote land in the manga, there is a time jump in the story. Thorfinn is sold into the slave trade in Scandinavia. He loses his will to live as well as his sense of purpose. He obeyed his new lords’ orders without question until he met Einar, another slave. Thorfinn’s life will be forever changed by Einar’s arrival. They will collaborate to achieve their release and begin a new, tranquil existence. Thorfinn gradually rediscovers his new purpose and discovers a new cause for life. Thorfinn’s revenge mission was the subject of the first season. However, since his father’s assailant is no longer alive, the second season, if approved, will have to focus on a new chapter in his life.
