Based on the manga Vinrando Saga by Makoto Yukimura, Vinland Saga is a Japanese historical drama anime series that premiered on Netflix in July 2022. Beginning in April 2005, the manga was produced in a serialized format in Weekly Shonen Magazine and was later moved to Monthly Afternoon.
For those unversed, the story of Vinland Saga is situated in the historical context of the Vikings’ power in Europe, focusing on the rise of King Cnut to the English throne. The official synopsis of Vinland Saga reads:
“Thorfinn pursues a journey with his father’s killer in order to take revenge and end his life in a duel as an honorable warrior and pay his father a homage.”
According to What’s on Netflix, the animation for season 1 of Vinland Saga was in the hands of WIT Studio; however, the second season is transitioned into the hands of Studio MAPPA, whose name is associated with incredible animes such as Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen.
Ever since the release of season one of Vinland Saga in July 2022, fans have been (impatiently) anticipating the second season. If you’re one of them, continue to read more about the release date of Vinland Saga.
When will Vinland Saga Season 2 hit the Netflix library?
Initially, the second season of Vinland Saga was scheduled to release three years after its season one premiere. However, the fans couldn’t be happier to know that it was just a rumor. As per the anime’s official website, Vinland Saga season 2 is officially confirmed to release on Netflix worldwide on January 9. However, Netflix China won’t be streaming the second season of Vinland Saga.
According to What’s on Netflix:
“…We recently learned that the anime will be simulcasted on Netflix and Crunchyroll on the same day as the Japanese broadcast.”
As far as the English dub of the anime series is concerned, according to the wiki, Netflix has the official streaming rights for VSI’s English dub. This implies that the English dub could arrive later in 2023 after the release of the Japanese broadcast. Be that as it may, neither Netflix nor Studio Mappa has released any official confirmation.
Is the trailer for Vinland Saga Season 2 released?
Fortunately, yes! The released trailer features the show’s new opening title song, “River” by Anonymouz. Not only that, but the new trailer also unravels some of the key plot details such as how Thorfinn will work as a slave on a Danish farm after his failure to exact revenge on Askeladd. In addition, we also see the parallel tangent of King Cnut or Canute the Great growing.
