Vinland Saga character designer, Takahiko Abiru, took to Twitter to ask the show’s fans to prolong their patience for Vinland Saga Season 2.
Abiru pointed out that they are aware of the long time that has passed since the franchise announced the upcoming season to be in the works in July last year.
The designer posted the update along with a special illustration:
There is currently no production information or an estimated release date for the second season of Vinland Saga anime.
The franchise released a trailer and key visual for the new anime on July 7, 2021.
Shuuhei Yabuta (Vinland Saga, Inuyashiki) is returning to direct the new season, with Takahiko Abiru (Hunter x Hunter (2011), Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season animation director) also returning as the animation director and character designer.
Author Makoto Yukimura also assured the fans in a recent tweet that “season 2 won’t skip any material from the manga.”
The first anime season premiered on July 7, 2019, to December 29, 2019, consisting of 24 episodes.
