A large number of anime fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Vinland Saga season 2.
A lot of people have been loving Vinind Saga, one of the most popular anime series. Written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura, the story is based on Japanese manga. The series is directed by Shuhei Yabuta. Japan aired season 1 from July 7, 2019, to December 29, 2019, consisting of 24 episodes.

Vinland Saga – what is it about?
A Viking lord called Thors Snorresson is the protagonist of this historical anime who forfeited a battle just to live peacefully with his family again. The mysterious Floki approaches him and invites him to explore the distant land of Vinland. In addition to the revenge Floki seeks, he also wants Thor to die as punishment for leaving the battle midway. In the absence of Thor’s knowledge, his son Thorfinn gets on board the ship and they set out to explore. A mercenary group hired by Floki to kill Thor attacks them near the middle of the voyage. While Thors fights all his might, he finally gives up after his son is taken, hostage. Thorfinn vows to avenge his father’s death and joins the same group of mercenaries who killed his father Thors.
A look at the second season of Vinland Saga
The director of Vinland Saga Shuuhei Yabuta tweeted three illustrations of the main characters in September 2020. A small easter egg was hidden somewhere, he said, and he invited his followers to find it.
A Nordic Script symbol is found on the bottom left corner of each artwork, which represents one of the English character sounds.
According to the runes, it says “sea son two”.
There is additionally Japanese text in which characters complain about having to wait.
“Have we got much longer to wait?” Thorfinn asks.” Upon hearing this, Askeladd responds, “That’s why I hate kids…” and Canute replies, “I suppose it’s coming soon…”
In addition to teasing Season 2 of Vinland Saga, the director also commented “Whatever it [the easter egg] maybe, its meaning is not profound.”
There are no details about the second season available from the producers and studio. The second season of the show is already in production, according to what I understand. The official announcement is expected to come soon. It’s expected that season 2 of Vinland Saga will arrive sometime in 2021 or early 2022.
Another update on Vinland Saga 2 has also been tweeted by Abiru Takahiko, the character designer of this anime series. In his letter, he said that he had to continue working on Attack on Titan while also dedicating his time to The Ancient Magus Bride. He added, “But there is an even more important work I have to do today, you know. I plowed fields again today.”.
In other words, there has not been any official confirmation from the makers yet beyond these two tweets. Until confirmation is provided, fans will need to wait a little longer.
Where you can watch Vinland Saga after it releases?
Amazon Prime Video currently offers the first season of the Vinland Saga. There is no such confirmation yet about the streaming platform of Season 2 but I think it will be available to watch on Amazon Prime only.
