Barbarians Season 2: More and more people are watching historical dramas and war-themed shows on Netflix. Take Outlander, Roman Empire, and The Last Kingdom as examples. Barbarians is another show in this genre that has been getting a lot of attention from viewers lately.

For those who don’t know, Barbarians is a historical war drama series that tells the story of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. This real-life battle happened around the year 9 CE when the Germanic people fought off the Romans, who were trying to make more of the country part of the Roman Empire. In this battle, the Germanic forces stopped the Roman emperor Augustus from taking over the land east of the Rhine.

Arminius was the one who got all of the Germanic tribes to work together against the Romans. As a child, he was taken away by the Roman Empire. To get back at them, he got the Roman military involved and then used their methods against them.

The first episode of the show aired on October 23, 2020, and both viewers and critics liked it. For Forbes, film historian Sheena Scott called Barbarians “an excellent series that tells a gripping story of love, friendship, betrayal, and revenge through the lens of a key historical event in Europe.”

Fans have been eagerly waiting for the second season ever since. On November 10, 2020, the show was renewed for a second season.

Barbarians Season 2 Release Date

Netflix said at Geeked Week that Barbarians 2 would come out in the fall. But as of now, there is no exact date for the same. We should get the series between September and November of 2022.

Barbarians Season 2 Plot

The synopsis for Season 2 of Barbarians has been posted on Netflix Germany. It says, “A year after the Battle of Varus, the Roman troops have returned to Germania, stronger than ever, and Ari is once again forced to deal with his Roman past. Ari betrayed Rome, so his brother joined the Roman side to punish him. Folkwin makes a dangerous challenge to the gods while Thusnelda and Ari try to get the tribes to work together against Rome.

Season 2 of Barbarians will look at a lot of different things. In the previous season, Arminius and Thusnelda were able to bring all of the Germanic tribes together under one roof. They then attacked the three Roman regions, which led to a big loss for the Roman Empire. Arminius and Thusnelda are still in a dark place, though.

Thusnelda’s father is planning a big attack with Hagan to take power from Arminius. Tiberius, the Emperor of Rome, is also putting together a new army. So, the war is still going on with Rome.

If the series follows what happened in real life, we can also expect Folkwin to make a deal with the gods and for it to come out that Thusnelda is carrying Folkwin’s child. This will make things hard for all three of them since Thusnelda wants to rule with Arminius and Folkwin may want to kill him to take the crown for himself.

It would also be interesting to find out how Varus proposes an anti-Roman alliance to Maroboduss, the king of the Marcomanni, among many other things. Because of this, Netflix subscribers shouldn’t have to wait too long to see the next chapter. Barbarians II will be on Netflix this fall.


Barbarians Season 1

It is, for sure. The real Battle of the Teutoburg Forest is what the movie Barbarians is based on. Like in the show, this important battle took place at night when a group of Germanic tribes came together to fight the Roman forces that were hurting them.
At Geeked Week 2022, Netflix confirmed that season 2 of Barbarians, which will be called Barbarians II, will come out later this year. The show takes place during the Roman occupation of Magna Germania in 9 A.D. when the oppressed Germanic tribes banded together to stop the Roman Empire from expanding.
