The second season of Britannia will premiere on Sky Atlantic on Thursday November 7th at 9pm, it has been announced. The complete second season will be available on-demand on the same day.
Britannia is set in 43AD and followed the Roman army as they returned to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia, a mysterious land led by warrior women and powerful Druids who claim to channel the powerful forces of the underworld. Like never before, the nine-part series told the story of the emotional and physical power struggles between three tribes: the Druids, Celts and Romans, who battle for the heart of Britannia.
The drama series, which was created by Jez Butterworth, is produced by Vertigo Films in association with Neal Street Productions and stars David Morrissey, Annabel Schole, Eleanor Worthington-Cox, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Mackenzie Crook. In the show’s second season, two years on from invading Britannia, General Aulus is romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena, and crushing those who try to resist. Aulus’s behaviour raises suspicions that he has another agenda; one that raises ghosts in Amena’s past and makes his threat to the Druids ever more critical. The only form of hope for the Druids and Celts is Cait, a young girl being trained by outcast Druid Divis, to fulfil a prophecy that would save Britannia from the Romans. But when the dead man wakes, two Druid brothers – Veran and Harka begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.
