Vinland Saga Season 2 – Important Updates

- Advertisment -

Vinland Saga Season 2 has been announced officially, however no launch date for the second season of this anime series has been set.

Vinland Saga is a historical manga and anime set about 1000 CE, during the Viking era. The series is based on the real-life Icelandic adventurer Thorfinn Karlsefni, the young son of a renowned ex-warrior named Thors.

Despite his strength, Thors is a pacifist who gives up his life to defend the people of his community. Against Thors’ desires, the 6-year-old Thorfinn chases the militants who murdered his father in order to learn to battle their leader, Askeladd. The manga is loosely inspired by real past events from the time period, while it makes numerous liberties with its people and situations.

The Vinland Saga anime has only had one season so far. The first season consists of 24 episodes that broadcast from July 8, 2019, to December 30, 2019. Vinland Saga season 2 is yet to air, and here’s all you need to know about it.

The classic manga, written by Makoto Yukimura, was initially released in 2005 by the Kodansha publishing business. In 2019, Japanese animation production house Wit (the same studio that created the first three seasons of “Attack on Titan”) developed a 24-episode anime version of the manga up to the 54th chapter.

The Season 1 conclusion of Vinland Saga has left both the story’s protagonists and its viewers reeling. Askeladd, Thorkell, and Thorfinn, now in the hands of the Danish Prince Canute, plotted to depose King Sweyn and install Canute in authority. To do this, Askeladd pretended to be insane and murdered the king, surrendering himself to allow Canute to assume power.

Thorfinn, unable to complete his lifetime goal for vengeance, lost all control and was taken away to an unknown destination before he could harm the newly-crowned Canute.

So, what about Vinland Saga season 2?

This occurrence appears to be a key turning point in the manga, which afterward endures a time jump. Years later, Thorfinn is traded into the Scandinavian institution of slavery. He has lost both his true calling and his will to survive.

Thorfinn works till he meets a fellow slave called Einar, who is reluctant to even attempt to defy his captors. They labor with each other to gain their independence and start a new, tranquil existence. If the anime follows the same continuous storyline as the original content, fans may look to see these incidents and more develop as Thorfinn progressively rekindles his meaning in life.

Fans are anxious to see the rest of the narrative completely animated, despite the fact that just the first half of the original material has been adapted. While there have been clues from the show’s creators that Vinland Saga Season 2 is on the way, no formal statements have been made.

Then again, there have been hints.

There have been suggestions that it will be produced. Shuhei Yabuta, the series’ director, shared a sketch of three main Vinland Saga protagonists on Twitter in September 2020. Yabuta, on the other hand, was eager to dismiss any premature speculations, declaring that “there is no deeper meaning.”

We estimate the release to be scheduled around mid-2022.
