Britannia returns for second season

Epic fantasy series Britannia returns for its second season next month.

At the far edges of the Roman Empire lies a land of powerful Druids and warrior queens – Britannia. And the Romans are here and set to stay. Two years on from invading Britannia, General Aulus (David Morrissey) is romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena (Annabel Scholey), crushing those who try to resist. Aulus’s behaviour raises suspicions that he has another agenda; one that raises ghosts in Amena’s past and makes his threat to the Druids ever more critical.

 

The only form of hope for the Druids and Celts is Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox), a young girl being trained by outcast Druid Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), to fulfil a prophecy that would save Britannia from the Romans.  But when the dead man wakes, two Druid brothers – Veran (Mackenzie Crook) and Harka (Mackenzie Crook) begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.

The series also sees Australian actress Liana Cornell return as Ania. Living with the Druids, Ania is thriving. She is learning fast and her ability to look after her child while she learns and practices, impresses all.
