Our wonderful Mackenzie Crook returns in Season 2 of ‘Britannia’ on Sky Atlantic and Amazon Prime.

“Two years on from invading Britannia, General Aulus is romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena, and 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, a young girl being trained by outcast Druid Divis, to fulfil a prophecy that would save Britannia from the Romans. But when the dead man wakes, two Druid brothers – Veran and Harka begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.”

You can watch the new series on Thursday 7th November on Sky Atlantic. Watch the trailer here!

 

What was Season 1 about?

“Set in the 1st century AD, Britannia re-imagines the scraps and squabbles of the Roman forces as they arrive in a land of feuding local tribes (the Regni and the Cantii), and encounter Druids, demons and prophecies along the way.”

Mackenzie starred as Veran in Season 1 but will be returning to Season 2 to play Veran’s brother Harka as well.
