Just after celebrating its 2nd anniversary, the Vinland Saga anime has confirmed season 2! The official Twitter account initially posted the announcement for the anniversary event, without even teasing the sequel:
The follow up news came today. They’ve confirmed that Vinland Saga is getting a season 2. A reminder that the director of the first season Shūhei Yabuta made a post on Twitter back in September of 2020. The illustration he posted had an easter egg, which hinted towards a possible Vinland Saga season 2. He also left a translation of the rest of the text in a self-reply. It goes:
Thorfinn: “How long must we wait?”
Askeladd: “That’s why I hate kids…”
Canute: “It’s soon…, I guess…”

It came a bit later than expected due to the pandemic, but we’re still excited to watch it. The continuation is likely to cover an important arc of the manga. Although some think it might be boring as an anime, most are excited to see it come to life.
