The latest season two teaser has just gone live, revealing what we may anticipate from the return of Vinland Saga.
As you can see above, the clip is truly stunning, and it demonstrates MAPPA’s attention to detail. This video has it all, from fire to rage to fortune. Season two will follow an adult Thorfinn as he continues his journey through a new world destroyed by Vikings. And when he meets some new allies, well, the man’s world is flipped upside down once more.
What will be the plot for Vinland Saga season 2?
In the first season, we saw Thors, an honorable Jomsviking commander, murdered in an unfair fight by Askeladd, the head of a gang of mercenaries. Thorfinn, his son, who observed all that happened, promised to revenge on his father in a fair fight against Askeladd.
However, after years of growing up with Askeladd and eventually seeing his death, he killed the Vengeful Thorfinn within him and lost the desire to live.
The first season concludes Thorfinn’s character growth, although manga aficionados argue that the main drama has just begun. Season 2 of Vinland Saga continues the manga’s Slave Arc, also known as Ketil’s Farm Arc.
Thorfinn is enslaved as a punishment for assaulting Canute, the new king and stealing his reason for being with the killing of Askeladd at the end of the first season.
Thorfinn has only known war as a killing machine fighting for Askeladd, but season 2 will unveil a new side of him and share the misery of an oppressed human.
Thorfinn will most likely be reformed, with a new will to survive. Canute, on the other hand, wants to create Earth a paradise in his own way, and while he plans to establish a peaceful society, he may have a detrimental influence on the plot.
