We discuss the Netflix series Barbarians season 2, including the release date, time, plot synopsis, cast, and trailer.

The first season of the Netflix original series Barbarians shocked people with how immediately successful it was. It is the most popular German-language original series on Netflix and recorded 37 million views in its first month on the streaming service. Thus, a second season was quickly ordered, which is now set to premiere later this month. The historical fiction show is set during the Roman Empire’s occupation of Germania (the land now known as Germany) and follows the rebellion of the Germanic tribes under the leadership of Arminius.

Netflix series Barbarians season 2 plot synopsis

Here is the official plot synopsis:

New Heroes, new alliances, new enemies – the battle is not over.” Meanwhile, Netflix Germany provided, “A year after the Varus Battle, the Roman troops have returned to Germania, stronger than ever, and Ari is once again confronted with his Roman past. His brother has joined the Roman side to punish Ari for his betrayal of Rome. While Thusnelda and Ari try to unite the tribes against Rome, Folkwin makes a sinister challenge to the gods.”

Our opinion of the premise

With the information released thus far, Barbarians Season 2 promises to be just as exciting and engaging as Season 1. There are certainly more battles against Rome ahead, and the character of Folkwin still stands as a wild card whose next actions are somewhat unpredictable. We can’t wait to see what happens with Ari’s brother and to see how Ari and Thusnelda are able to work together and if any issues will arise between them.

Barbarians season 2 release date

The second season will be released globally on Netflix on Friday, October 21st, at 12 am PT.

Is there a trailer? 

There sure is! Check it out below:

There is plenty of historical material for the creators of Barbarians to build off of, so it seems likely that if Season 2 is as popular as Season 1 was, they may approve a third season. It’s fantastic to see original content doing so well, in an age when so much of the media is dominated by franchises. It’s especially exciting to see a foreign language series spreading in popularity outside of the country in which it originated.
