Woo hoo! Netflix has set the global premiere date for the second season of the terrific German drama series Barbarians (Barbaren)!
Without any further ado, Barbarians: Season 2, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Friday, October 21, exclusively on Netflix.
For folks who haven’t watched the series yet, Season 1 follows the interwoven fates of three people during the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 A.D. — a clash that will change the history of Europe.
The Roman occupiers under Governor Varus (Gaetano Aronica, Detective Montalbano) are extorting crushing tributes from the Germanic tribes, so two members of the latter — childhood friends and secret couple Thusnelda (Jeanne Goursaud, Para – We Are King), daughter of the Cheruscan prince, and Folkwin (David Schütter, 4 Blocks), a simple warrior — decide to fight back. Acting on their own in a daring night-and-fog act, they humiliate the Roman Empire.
To avenge the shame, the Roman governor sends his foster son, Arminius (Laurence Rupp, Murder by the Lake), a Roman officer, to deal with the rebels. But Varus doesn’t realize that Arminius is closely connected to Thusnelda and Folkwin. Torn between the devotion he feels for both sides, Arminius has to choose: be loyal to one and betray the other.
Thusnelda, Folkwin, and Arminius become the driving force behind the uprising, which unites the divided Germanic tribes into an army. Together they deliver one last battle to the superior Roman superpower, which will also change the lives of the three friends forever.
Season 2 opens a year after Varus’s defeat. As a new Roman general gets settled in Germania, Arminius (Ari to his intimates) seeks to become king of all the tribes — but a rival stands in his way.
Daniel Donskoy (St. Maik) joins the Barbarians cast as Flavus. Also featuring in the new season are David Wurawa (Shadow and Bone), Murathan Muslu (Skylines), Cynthia Micas (Professor T.), Katharina Heyer (Charité), Giovanni Carta (Mafia Only Kills in Summer), and Alessandro Fella (Paradise).
