The second season of Britannia has arrived, and this time it’s the Celts that General Aulus is aiming to colonise with the help of Queen Amena. The only hope left comes in the form of an outcast Druid, and his understudy, a young girl named Cait, who will once and for all try to rid Britannia of the Romans.
Britannia Season 2 TV Preview
We head back to 42 AD, two years on from the moment General Aulus invaded Britannia. Now his aim is to crush the Celtic tribes throughout the land with the help of Queen Amena. But does Aulus have an altogether different agenda, as his suspicious behaviour suggests?
There is more than a little hope, however, in the shape of a young girl named Cait, who has been well trained by Divis, a druid cast aside by his own people. The two have a plan to oust the Romans and take back the prophecy that might eventually save Britannia.
Starring Mackenzie Crook, (The Office), David Morrisey (The Walking Dead), Eleanor Worthington-Cox (Gwen), and Nikolaj Lie Kaas as Divis, the much anticipated Britannia TV series has arrived in Australia and using the information in this guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.
