Vinland Saga Season 2

The season 2 of the viking anime Vinland Saga is coming early in 2023. Twin Engine and Studio Mappa unveiled the show’s opening theme in a new trailer, which also set the premiere date. It opens on January 9, 2023 and will stream worldwide. The first season premiered back in mid-2019. Crunchyroll will offer it as part of its Winter 2023 season.

Check out the Vinland Saga season 2 trailer below. English subtitles are available in the closed captions.

The story of Vinland Saga is inspired by accounts of the Danelaw, a period in English history when the Vikings invaded and controlled parts of England. Set during the early 11th-century AD, the series follows Thorfinn, a young man seeking revenge for his father’s death. The Vinland Saga Season 2 trailer begins with Thorfinn living as a slave after the events of the first season. He’s instructed by his owner to befriend another slave, the Englishman Einar.

The Season 2 opening theme song is “River” by Anonymouz. Though the first season was produced by Wit Studio (which produced the first seasons of Attack on Titan), production for the second season is being handled by Studio Mappa (which is animating the ongoing Chainsaw Man anime). Key members of the first season staff are reprising their roles, though, including Director Shuhei Yabuta, writer Hiroshi Seko, and character designer Takahiko Abiru.

Vinland Saga Season 2 opens on January 9, 2023 and will stream on Netflix worldwide outside of China and on Crunchyroll worldwide outside of Asia. The first season is available on HIDIVE and Netflix.
