Epic Fantasy Series Britannia Returns For A Second Season!


Epic fantasy series Britannia returns for a new 10-episode season on Tuesday, November 12 at 9.30pm, streaming on Foxtel and screening on FOX SHOWCASE.

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.

Britannia is created by Jez Butterworth, Tom Butterworth and James Richardson. Season two is written by Jez, Tom and John-Henry Butterworth. Produced by Rupert Ryle-Hodges and executive produced by Vertigo Films’ James Richardson; and Neal Street Productions’ Sam Mendes, Pippa Harris and Nicolas Brown with Jez and Tom Butterworth.

Britannia season two is co-funded by Sky Studios and distributed internationally by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.

Britannia is exclusive in Australia to Foxtel. Season one is available to stream on demand.
