Vinland Saga Season 2 Reveals Season Premiere Synopsis and Stills

Vinland Saga is gearing up for its big comeback with Season 2 of the anime next month, and the series has given fans the first idea of what to expect from its premiere with the synopsis and first preview images from Episode 1 of the new season! With the first season going on to a ton of success with fans in the years since its initial debut, a second season of the series makes a ton of sense. Doubly so when you realize that it also means a new era of the Makoto Yukimura's original manga series can finally make it to the screen.

Vinland Saga Season 2 will be airing next month as part of the Winter 2023 anime schedule, and since its premiere is only a few weeks away from the time of this writing, the series is now getting ready for its first new episode. Showing fans a glance at Episode 1 of the new season (titled "Slave"), Vinland Saga has not only released the synopsis for the new season premiere but a few preview images as well.

"A new millennium begins in the southern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. After the death of his longtime enemy, Askeladd, Thorfinn lost his purpose in life. He was bought by the landowner Ketil as a 'slave' and engaged in land reclamation work on his farm. Thorfinn meets a young man there, Einar, who was also a slave like him. The encounter of Einar led Thorfinn to face the sins he had committed and began to find meaning in life. On the other hand, Canute, who became the King of England, attempted to extend his territory for the establishment of 'the promised land'. This is 'The Story of a True Warrior (Saga)'. 'The story of Atonement and Salvation (Saga)' that lies beyond the prologue."
