The clash of clans in ancient Britain is now all set to make a return for the second season on Sky and fans are extremely excited about it.
The second season of Sky's own tale of the Roman invaders is making a comeback. Back on April 13, 2019, a trailer for the second season was dropped. British Sky Atlantic joined hands with Amazon Prime videos and both have launched an ambitious television project named 'Britannia'. It is a period drama that looks pretty promising due to its concept to describe the events that took place in AD 43, during the Roman conquest of Britain. Even though it was initially conceived as a mini-series, but the renewal decision was only announced a year later after the first season premiered. Here is everything that you need to know about the second season of the series.
The second season of this series will air in autumn and it will also be a ten-part series.
The opening season will be available to stream on Sky or NOW TV and the subscribers will be able to watch it without any sort of delay.
Steve Pemberton will play Emperor Claudius in the new series of Sky Atlantic's Britannia. "As soon as I read the stage direction 'The Emperor rides in on an elephant' I just knew this was the part for me." https://t.co/t0xIKBcXyt pic.twitter.com/mg3cJOi5nJ— British Comedy Guide (@BritishComedy) April 17, 2019

The official synopsis of the series reads, "Set in AD 43, the series follows the Roman conquest of Britain — "a mysterious land ruled by wild warrior women and powerful druids who can channel the powerful forces of the underworld." Celtic rivals Kerra and Antedia must work together to fight off the Roman invasion led by Aulus Plautius."

It's been two years since they all have arrived in Britannia where General Aulus Plautius is Romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena and is effectively crushing those who are trying to resist. But, Aulus seems to have some sort of hidden agenda that turns him as a growing threat to the Celts’ religious leaders the Druids. Now, the only hope for the Druids
The cast of this series consists of David Morrissey who is Roman general Aulus Plautius, Zoë Wanamaker plays Regni Queen Antedia, and Mackenzie Crook is Druid leader Veran. Along with them, Annabel Scholey, Hugo Speer and Julian Rhind-Tutt are also going to appear for a second season.

The filming of the series takes place in the Czech countryside near Prague and in various locations around Wales.
