The first season was released on October 23, 2020. It was released in German and Latin.
What is the first season of Barbarians about?
The German war drama shows a fictional war between the Roman empire and the Germanic tribes when the Romans invaded Germany.
The series began showing the rule of the Roman occupation of Magna Germania in 9 A. D. They oppress the Germanic tribes with heavy taxes to exploit them. The growing rage from the Germanic tribes led them to form a unified Germanic resistance, but tribal chieftains keep fighting each other while others want a truce with the Romans.
The series follows Arminius, who was given away as a child along with his brother Flavus, to ensure peace between the Germanic Cherusci tribe and the Romans. He grows up to become an eques in the Roman Imperial Army. he returns to Germany to help his foster father, Varus, to bring discipline to the place. However, he becomes disheartened to see the torture on his childhood tribe, and in his hot blood, set out to form a proper rebellion against the Romans. This leads to the ambush of the Roman legions at the battle of the Teutoburg Forest, where the Germanic rebellion led by Arminius ultimately came out victorious.

What will happen in Barbarians II?
No specific synopsis has been released by the creators as of now. It is well known about the Roman conquest, so there is a lot of food for thought for the plot of Barbarians II. we can speculate that an anti-Roman alliance will be proposed in the second season, as in the end we saw Varus attempting suicide after being distraught from the fact that his foster son had betrayed him. We just have to wait, and watch!
