Vinland Saga season 2: a different sequel, release date, trailer… The first info!

Vinland Saga (almost) back

Three years after the broadcast of season 1 in Japan (available on Prime Video in France), the anime Vinland Saga – adapted from the famous manga by Makoto Yukimura, will make its big comeback on our screens with a long-awaited season 2. Well almost. The news was confirmed this Wednesday, June 8, 2022, we will have to wait January 2023 to find new episodes.

Disappointment ? Yes, but we reassure you, this interminable wait will be fully rewarded. First, if the Wit studio will no longer be in production, it will be replaced by… MAPPA (Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan). Suffice to say that we do not really lose in terms of quality.

A different season 2

Secondly, Shūhei Yabuta – the director of the anime, took to his Twitter account to promise us great things. Aware of fans’ frustration, the one who was already behind the hugely successful season 1 revealed that the sequel will take a different but necessary turn in order to keep surprising us, “The spectacular moments will diminish and the pace of the story will slow down. However, the emotions of the characters will take on a more important and intense place. I can promise you it will be a unique experience like no other. Hope you all enjoy season 2“.

In other words, where season 1 was mainly content to amaze us with a succession (sometimes too much) of action scenes without really being interested in the development of the characters, season 2 will further explore their psychology which should raise the stakes and tensions, and thus bring real power to the clashes.
