Barbarians Season 2 Updates: You devoured the (short) season 1 of Barbarians on Netflix and you now hope to discover a sequel? The creators of the series have expressed themselves on the possibility of returning with Barbarians Season 2.
After Dark, a new German series has just appeared on Netflix: Barbarians. On the program here? No time travel, but a real step back since the story takes us to the year 9 after Jesus Christ, in the heart of the Battle of Teutoburg which saw the Romans and the Germans engage in a violent fight and murderer.
Barbarians Season 2: A series that mixes reality and fiction
A new historical series, therefore, did not prevent the creative team from integrating many elements of fiction. Asked by BusinessInsider about the part between the real and the fictional in this story, Arne Nolting (co-creator) said, “Our approach was: let’s stay as authentic as possible and fill in the gaps with exciting stories and emotion.”
In this regard, Nolting took as an example the relationship between Arminius and Varus that we can follow on the screen, “No one really knows what their story was like. So we made the choice to elevate this relationship in order to bring it to something stronger. “ Comments shared by Andreas Heckmann (co-creator), who for his part added, “Barbarians is not a documentary, but a fiction. Our goal is to entertain and this through an authentic setting”. To put it simply, Barbarians is the image of what Vikings can regularly do with his characters, which is not to displease us.
Season 2: A possible sequel
How to understand that the series, despite this historical framework, has the potential to last a few years on the platform? Absolutely. If the duo is not yet looking to the future, “We are for the moment very happy to see that the series is as popular as we would hope”, it does not refrain from offering a sequel to Barbarians, “What will happen next? We will have to wait. But there is enough material for Barbarians Season 2”.
It remains to be hoped that Netflix, which has taken the annoying habit of canceling its series early in recent weeks, will be of the same opinion …
