Anticipated Release Date for Vinland Saga Season 2
The first season of the Vinland Saga was released in 2019. Fans immediately liked the anime series. It got a good response from the audience. After the first season, everyone is desperate for the release of Vinland Saga Season 2. It is expected that the wait for the second season will be over in 2022. The first season had a total of 24 episodes. The first season premiered on July 7, 2019, and ended on December 29, 2019. After the completion of the first season, the second season of the Vinland Saga was announced. Now after this announcement trailer of the second season was also released but there is no official date announced for the release.
Since there have been no official announcements regarding “Vinland Saga” Season 2, there’s no way to determine a solid release date. However, there have been hints pointing toward its production. In September 2020, series director Shuhei Yabuta posted a drawing on Twitter of three primaries of “Vinland Saga” characters. Runes are drawn below each character supposedly spelling out the words sea, son, and two, according to The Cinemaholic. The phonetics of these words would spell out “Season 2” when combined. However, Yabuta was quick to dismiss any premature theories, stating “there is no deeper meaning.”
Likewise, “Vinland Saga” animation director Abiru Takahiko posted in March 2021 that he has been distracted from work on “Attack on Titan” and “The Ancient Magus Bride” by another project. Many fans in the comments speculate that his “other work” is actually “Vinland Saga” Season 2. However, this is nothing more than speculation.
Vinland Saga is written by Makoto Yukimura. It is a shonen manga. The manga was published in a weekly shonen magazine. It consisted of a total of 25 volumes. The anime series was produced by Naokado Fujiwara, Yoko Ueda, Mitsuhiro Sugita. The direction of the anime series was done by Shuhei Yabuta. It is written by Hiroshi Seko and Kenta Ihara. The series premiered on NHK General TV and Amazon Prime Video. The cast of the series includes Yûto Uemura, Kenshô Ono, Akio Otsuka, Naoya Uchida, and Hiroki Yasumoto. It is expected the same cast members would be retained in the second installment of Vinland Saga. However, it is reported that Naoya Uchida and Hiroki Yasumoto have left the series. So they would not return in Vinland Saga Season 2.
