Vinland Saga Season 2: Official Announcement
Twin Engine streamed a new trailer for the new season on Monday, revealing a preview and the ending theme song. LMYK will be performing the ending theme song “Without Love.” Cast members from season one will also be returning for this new season. Among the returning cast members are Yuto Uemura, Kensho Ono, and Akio Ohtsuka, who will play Thorfinn, Canute, and Thorkell. Moreover, Yoji Ueda will also be returning to voice the character of Leif Ericson.
New cast members for season two have also been revealed. Shunsuke Takeuchi, Mayumi Sako, and Yuu Hayashi will be in the cast as Einar, Arnheid, and Olmar. Other new cast members include Fuminori Komatsu, Taiten Kusunoki, and Mugihito. They will be voicing the characters of Snake, Thorgil, and Sverkel. First-season staff members, including the director, series scriptwriter, and music composer, will also be returning for this new season.
Season 2 of the anime will be following the manga’s Slave Arc. So far, according to speculations, it will reveal Thorfinn’s new side and share his pain of being enslaved. At the same time, Canute might negatively impact the story for season 2. With only two arcs to go for the remaining anime, the story will be tight and crisp.

This is the first time when we are going to see Thorfinn go through the life of a slave. This chapter will not only shape Thorfinn into a man of justice, but we will also see the changes in him as a leader.
