Netflix has revealed that the second season of the German television series Barbarians will premiere in late 2022, following a lengthy hiatus.
Following a lengthy absence, Netflix has announced that the second season of the German television series Barbarians would release in late 2022, following a pause of more than a decade.
Barbarians is a German historical drama television series produced by Jan Martin Scharf and Arne Nolting for Netflix Originals. Season 1 of Stranger Things premiered on Netflix on October 23rd, 2020, in every country in the world.
Barbarians has quickly risen to become the most watched German Netflix Original series in the short period of time since its premiere on the streaming service (it was the overall but was topped by Blood Red Sky).
Barbarians was the seventh most-watched non-English language title on Netflix prior to the service’s discontinuation of the 2-minute statistic, with 37 million views logged in the first 28 days of availability.
Barbarians also achieved notable success on Netflix, reaching the top 10 of every top ten list in the globe.

Barbarians Season 2 Plot
The following is an outline of what we might expect from season 2 of Stranger Things, courtesy of a recent Netflix Germany release:
“A year after the Varus Battle, the Roman troops have returned to Germania, stronger than ever, and Ari is once again confronted with his Roman past. His brother has joined the Roman side to punish Ari for his betrayal of Rome. While Thusnelda and Ari try to unite the tribes against Rome, Folkwin makes a sinister challenge to the gods.”
We’ve also heard a lot of conjecture about what we may expect from season 2, which is exciting.
From the conclusion of the first season of Barbarians, there was a lot to think about. We also know what to expect from a prospective second season, according to the lessons of the past.
King of Barbarian
As a result of their efforts, Arminius and Thusnelda were successful in unifying the Germanic tribes under a single banner in order to confront the three Roman Legions. The ambush was a resounding success, and the Roman Empire suffered a terrible loss as a result.
While still reeling from the aftermath of a major victory, it is becoming more and more probable that Arminius and Thusnelda will be crowned King and Queen of the Tribes, respectively.
It goes without saying that conflict at home is likely to occur. Thusnelda’s father is conniving with Hadgan, the man she used to be engaged to. The duo intends to strike when Arminius is least expecting it in order to seize control of the situation.
Is this Rome’s wrath?
The struggle against Rome is far from ended, and there will be many more battles to come in history.
The Emporer of Rome, Tiberius, will be busy assembling another army while Arminius and the Germanic tribes are busy eradicating the last Romans east of the Rhine. Germanicus will lead more Roman forces to confront Arminius.
Folkwin has distanced himself from the duo after almost becoming a slave to the Romans and losing Thusnelda to Arminius. Instead of seeing it as a gift, Arminius saw it was an insult and declared his plan to assassinate Folkwin should the Germanic King choose him.
Arminius’ ambitions are put at risk by Folkwin. Arminius is still alive because to Folkwin, who also spread the myth that Thusnelda was linked to the gods. In the end, both of these activities have culminated in the marriage of his former best friend and his former girlfriend, bringing the tribes together and perhaps making them king and queen.
Barbarians Season 2 Release Date
For a long time, it appeared that Barbarians season 2 would be delayed in its production. However, it wasn’t until September 2021 that Deadline revealed that shooting had begun in Krakow, Poland (which represents a shift in filming site from season 1, which was shot in Budapest, Hungary).
Barbarians season 2 will premiere on Netflix in the autumn/winter of 2022, according to a Netflix Germany announcement in early 2022.
