Vinland Saga Season 2: Best News of the Year

Vinland Saga Season 2 best and updated news!

Many of you must have already watched this anime or read its manga; just like me, if you haven’t, then don’t worry, it’s not too late to dive into the action-filled world of Vikings and warfare.

If you’re here for Vinland Saga Season 2, then I must assume that you are also eager to know when Vinland Saga Season 2 will air, right? Since it makes you impatient when you read the manga, and can’t wait to see how it will be adapted into anime.

Well, I’m here, and I have Sharingan. I’m going to use it to tell you when it’s going to happen “wooo….” Just kidding (by the way, I know we can’t see the future using Sharingan; I hope you know that too), I’m just an average human like you *poker face* Okay, okay, I’m sorry for fooling around with my precious readers. I’ll accept any punishment but don’t tell me to do something crazy, I am still single, and I still have to go into one of my anime worlds. Oh, you’re telling me even give details on the Vinland Saga season 2? I guess I have no choice *sigh*.

Predicting if an anime is getting a sequel or not depends on various factors. For us viewers, anime or manga is just a source of entertainment, but it’s passion and daily bread for writers and producers. The factors which decide the sequel are

  • Official announcement
  • Source material
  • Popularity
  • Sales


Before indulging in the meat and potatoes, let’s gather the spices. Vinland Saga is set in the 11th century and about a person Thorfinn; it tastes medieval warzone and profound philosophical aspects.

The story first tells about young Thorfinn, who admires his father, Thors, the strongest Viking. Later in the story, his father was assassinated, and then Thorfinn’s mission is to avenge his father. The surprising thing is that Thorfinn was taken in by Askeladd, who was his father’s killer. Later, we see Prince Canute, who wants to make this place better, and asks Askeladd and Thorfinn’s help. Now, what happens next?

Top Factors to determine the release of Vinland Saga Season 2

Without further adieu, let’s get into it.

Check out the video for more information.

1. Official announcement

On Twitter, they’ve already announced that the team is working on a “special project,” which, let’s assume, is a Vinland Saga Movie or Vinland Saga Season 2. There is also a 10% chance for the release of OVA episodes as well. Also, due to Covid19, there was a delay in and cancellation of many events as well. (1)

The official Twitter account of Vinland Saga also tweeted on Dec 2019 (pinned tweet) :-

“TV anime “#ヴィンランド・サガ ” Special movie released

The story of a “real warrior” being spun ── Episode 24 “END OF THE PROLOGUE” Thank you for your viewing! We will deliver a special movie to everyone who watched the broadcast. Please enjoy this too!” (2)

2. Source Material

Many anime take a long break because there isn’t sufficient material in the manga for anime adaption. Checking on the source material and its progress gives a better hint about Vinland Saga Season 2.

For Vinland Saga, the source material is manga, and there have been 25 volumes published as of now. (3) Season 1 has covered 54 chapters in manga, and currently, the manga has reached chapter 179, so there is more than enough material for two sequels. The manga updates are regular, with the latest chapter on 25 Jan 2021 in English though it’s one chapter each month.

3. Popularity

The popularity and fan base are crucial for a sequel. There is no point in making an anime series when there aren’t many people watching it, making it a loss for the writer and the production house.

Regarding the popularity of Vinland Saga, it is #24 Highest rated all time and #3 Highest rated 2019 according to MAL, which clarifies how good the storyline is. Vinland Saga is #87 most popular, which depicts how popular the anime is since its release in 2019 and has maintained its position in the top 100 for two years.

The series was also nominated for the 2008 Taisho award; in 2009, it was awarded the grand prize in Japan Media Arts’s manga division. The anime also doesn’t lack in achievements, and it won Anime of the year in the 6th Anime Trending Awards.

Recently, a particular chapter in manga gave a crossover of the new game Assassins Creed: Valhalla and Vinland Saga, which gained immense popularity and support from the fans.

There is much more to say about Vinland Saga, but I guess with this, it is effortless to predict that there is no doubt that there will be Vinland Saga Season 2.

4. Sales

Sales are the most vital part in deciding the Vinland Saga Season 2; maybe not for us viewers, but it’s the most crucial factor for the production house. There were no Tokyo ravens Season 2 because the profit was not enough for the committee to start another season.

Vinland Saga Season 2 Best News Of The Year

Welcome, all future businessmen; let’s get talking.

Vinland Saga has sold over 5 million copies of manga as of 2018, and several volumes have appeared on the top ten bestselling manga.

The merchandise is a perfect way of making extra money for the anime, going through the store/good sales. I can say there are many items, but almost all of them are of Thorfinn, but I can predict that there will be more interesting characters and elements since season 1 only revolves around Thorfinn.

With the above information, I can say that the sales are pretty amazing in terms of manga. The goods are not yet popular because merch is limited, just like accel word or elite classroom. But I hope there will be better merch. No doubt the sales surely give a green light for Vinland Saga Season 2.


If you’ve been keeping with me, then it’s obvious. That the franchise is expected to release Vinland Saga Season 2, so why there aren’t any official news or announcement?. I think the production team had enough profit from Attack on Titan 3 seasons, and maybe they’re taking a break or planning something bug.

Vinland Saga Season 2 Best News Of The Year

So, I bet that we will get the news on the Vinland Saga Season 2 at the end of this year. And it’s possibly going to be aired by 2022. With this, I guess you will forgive me for joking.
