What To Expect From Barbarians Season 2?

The Roman Empire suffered a terrible loss as a result of the successful ambush.

Hadgan and Thusnelda’s father is planning a major onslaught. The two plan to strike when Arminius is least expecting it in order to seize power for themselves. Besides the threat to their family, Arminius and Thusnelda face a much greater danger.
