It was officially announced on July 7th, 2021, that the anime adaptation of Vinland Saga is getting a second season, but the question is when will Vinland Saga season 2 be released, and what will the plot be about?
Here’s everything we know so far regarding the new season of Vinland Saga and when it will be released.
The anime series Vinland Saga, known as Vinrando Saga in Japanese, is based on a successful manga of the same name that was first published in 2005. The Vinland Saga manga series is written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura.
Vinland Saga is a popular historical adventure anime series with Norse mythology elements loved by people worldwide, which follows a young Thorfinn who grew up listening to the stories of old sailors that had traveled the ocean and reached the place of legend, Vinland.
The anime television series Vinland Saga has only had one season so far directed by Shūhei Yabuta and animated by Wit Studio. Director Shūhei Yabuta and the same people under a newly formed Studio Kafka are returning for the second season.
The first 24-episode Vinland Saga television anime series premiered in Japan in July 2019. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting patiently for Vinland Saga Season 2 Episode 1.
Vinland Saga Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, Studio Kafka has yet to announce when Vinland Saga season 2 will be released, so there is no countdown yet. We need to wait for more information about the second season. But, when the second season gets a release date on the Vinland Saga official Twitter account, we will let you know.
However, the most likely release date is either April 2022 or July 2022. Most anime series are usually released 6 to 9 months after they are announced. So we should hear something about the date in the next few months.
Let’s hope we will get to learn when Vinland Saga season 2 is coming out soon. Many anime fans want to know when season 2 of Vinland Saga will be released, but for now, all we can do is wait for some news or updates.
Vinland Saga Season 2 Plot
So far, the anime adaptation of Vinland Saga has covered volumes 1 to 8. As a result, volume 9 continues where the anime ends. So, if you can’t wait for Vinland Saga Season 2 to be out, you may start reading volume 9 now.
In Japan, there are currently 25 manga volumes of Vinland Saga released so far. In 2021, the manga Vinland Saga is still ongoing. That means the story isn’t over yet. Vinland Saga Season 2 will take the story forward and it’s expected to cover manga volumes 9 to 14.
So the whole farm arc of Vinland Saga should be adapted into anime by Studio Kafka, but that depends on how many episodes the second season has. Two more seasons after that should adapt everything that is currently available for the Vinland Saga franchise.
