Vinland Saga Season 2: Plot Details & Theories
Two weeks ago, when the makers of the show dropped the latest trailer of the anime, the popularity of the sequel and demand for it increased exponentially. The trailer of Vinland Saga Season 2 confirms that the sequel will officially mark the entrance of Thorfinn in the Ketil Farm Arc. This arc focuses on the rather real aspect of slavery in the kingdom. Since childhood, the naive Thorfinn used to believe that slavery is a concept that should be abolished at once.
But here, he will witness the dark reality of the economy that runs through the slave trade. Furthermore, the season will also feature some much-awaited appearances like that of Gudrid and Hild. The season also skips a large part of Thorfinn’s young adult phase since we see him all grown up in the trailer. Thus, fans can expect a grand return of Vinland Saga in the second season!
