Vinland Saga was one of the most popular anime series of 2019 and fans have been eagerly waiting for the second season to announced. Now the anime show director has revealed that the series will be returning soon. Well, he teased it on Twitter. Shuhei Yabuta shared a comic sketch featuring a conversation between Thorfinn, Askeladd, and Canute in a set.
The sketch shows Thorfinn asking “how long must we wait?” – presumedly for the anime season- then Askeladd says “That’s why I hate kids…” before
Canute replies “It’s soon…, I guess…”

This probably means the series second could be announced sometimes this year. Looking at how the coronavirus outbreak has affected most series production the second season of Vinland Saga anime could start broadcasting in 2021.
Vinland Saga anime first season began airing on July 7. The show is listed for 24-episodes in total. The anime show first three episodes streamed on the same day exclusively on Amazon Prime. Yukimura serialized Vinland manga in Japan in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2005. The series has more than 5 million copies in print.
As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band’s leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Thorfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery… the land Leif called Vinland.
