In the first season of ‘Barbarians,’ we see a confrontation between Rome and a group of Goth tribes. In the upcoming second season, both cultures will be further pushed to their limits. Not only will their cultures collide, but the Romans and Goths will also come up against each other in battle. Speaking of battles, 20th Century Fox is producing the upcoming ‘Barbarians Season 2’ (TBD). The new seasons will depict events in the Roman Empire and in the Goths’ home away from home, Germany. In addition to Rome and Germany, many other nations will also be featured in Season 2. Fans say that Excalibur attempted to get the rights for “Barbarians”, but the story was deemed too similar to “The Saracen.” Excalibur’s version of “The Saracen” was named “Lands of the Saracen”.

What is the series about?
“Barbarian” is a European/German production. It is a historical drama, set during the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th Century. The series will feature intrigue, treachery, monsters, and men of honour. It will also show how a young man is tormented by his father’s death and must find his place in the world. The first season of “Barbarians” ended with Rufio defeating the Goths, but losing the respect of his fellow Romans. He has finally acquired what he wants, but at a price that may be too costly to bear. The first season also covered Rufio’s journey from a Roman citizen to being elected as a general.
How is this series different from others?
The series will show tension between two ancient cultures. It will also show what it’s like to be a soldier in a time of turmoil, as well as how fortune can turn away from you overnight. The plot involves political intrigue, betrayal, and revenge. It also covers the religious beliefs of both Rome and the Ostrogoths at that time in history. The first season featured many battles and Roman victories but never seemed to end in defeat for the Romans. Much of the story has yet to be told. “Barbarians” portrays how two cultures affected each other around that time period, both on a personal and physical level as well as on an intellectual level.
What fans are expecting from season 2?
Some fans are looking forward to seeing how Rufio will deal with his new challenges in season 2. They are also eager to see how the power struggle unfolds between the Romans, Franks, and Saxons. Some fans have warned that “Barbarians” may not be suitable for younger viewers due to its graphic content and mature storyline and some posters are urging those under the age of 18 not to watch it.
