After being confirmed to be in production last July, we finally have more information on Vinland Saga season 2, including who’s animating it this time. The first season was animated at WIT STUDIO, but this time around the production has been handed over to the ever-busy MAPPA. The staff from the first season will remain the same, however, including previously confirmed director Shuhei Yabuta, character designer Takahiko Abiru and more.
Check out the new trailer and key visual, and look for Vinland Saga season 2 to kick off in January 2023.

Kodansha publishes Makoto Yukimura’s Vinland Saga manga in English and describes it:
As a child, Thorfinn sat at the feet of the great Leif Ericson and thrilled to wild tales of a land far to the west. But his youthful fantasies were shattered by a mercenary raid. Raised by the Vikings who murdered his family, Thorfinn became a terrifying warrior, forever seeking to kill the band’s leader, Askeladd, and avenge his father. Sustaining Thorfinn through his ordeal are his pride in his family and his dreams of a fertile westward land, a land without war or slavery … the land Leif called Vinland.
