Season 2 of Barbarians will transport viewers back to 9 AD for another round of clashes between Roman forces and an uneasy alliance of Germanic tribes attempting to halt the Roman empire’s expansion.
In the first season of this German Netflix historical drama, Roman traitor Arminius joined forces with childhood friends Thusnelda and Folkwin to incite a rebellion against the Romans. All of this led up to the depiction of the Battle of Teutoburg Forest in the show, in which the Germanic people successfully routed the Roman forces and emerged victoriously.
The series is based on true events and was Netflix’s most successful German original ever (before Blood Red Sky overtook it), so it’s not surprising that it’s getting a second season.
Here’s everything we know so far about Barbarians season 2…
Season 2 of ‘Barbarians’: Renewed Or Cancelled?
Renewal Status: Renewed as of November 10, 2020 ‘Barbarians’ is officially returning for season 2 in November 2020, according to Netflix.
The renewal came just over a month after the historical war drama debuted on the streaming service in October 2020.
The early renewal is a result of the show’s outstanding performance, which saw it rise to second place in Netflix’s Top 10 in the United States during its peak, trailing only ‘The Queen’s Gambit.’
When will Barbarians Season 2 begin filming?
According to Deadline, filming for the second season began in Krakow, Poland, and the surrounding area in early September.
Predictions on the release date of Barbarians Season 2:
The second season of Barbarians has yet to be confirmed, although it is expected to be released on the streamer in 2022. Given that the show has only recently begun filming season 2, fans should not anticipate the series to return to Netflix until late this year.

Season 2 cast of Barbarians
Barbarians stars Jeanne Goursaud, Laurence Rupp, and David Schütter will all return for the second season as Thusnelda, Arminius, and Folkwin, respectively.
Daniel Donskoy as Flavus, Murathan Muslu as Marbod, Cynthia Micas as Dido, Katherine Heyer as Odarike, Giovanni Carta as Tiberius, and Alessandro Fella as Germanicus are among the new cast members.
“I am really happy to be part of the continuation of this great series and looking forward to the cooperation with the entire team in front of and behind the camera,” showrunner Stefan Ruzowitzky said of the second season.
“We were able to secure additional great actors and actresses whose characters enrich the narrative density of Barbarians even more.”
What can we expect from Barbarians season 2?
Barbarians season 2 will be based on historical events, as was the first. Although the show’s creators haven’t revealed what’s next for Arminius, Thusnelda, and Folkwin, history suggests that another horrible fight is on the way.
In 16 AD, Roman General Germanicus attempted to avenge the fallen legions by returning with even more troops for a new war. Unlike the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, the Battle of Idistaviso was a huge success for the Romans, so if the show stays true to history, this second series could mean disaster for our heroes.
The fact that Daniel Donskoy is playing Arminius’ younger brother Flavus as an adult indicates that we may certainly expect a dramatic family reunion.
Flavus, like his older brother, was kidnapped by the Romans as a child. He remained loyal to his Roman captors, though, and even served in the Roman army under Germanicus.
Also, we expect Folkwin’s oath with the gods, as well as the discovery that Thusnelda is pregnant with Folkwin’s child, to present problems for our three main characters, especially since she hopes to govern with Arminius!
