Eleanor Worthington Cox will also reprise her role as Cait. She is the only person who can fulfill the prophecy and free the Britannia from the cruel Roman rule.
What Will Happen in Britannia Season 2?
According to speculations, the second season will return with a two-year time jump into the future. General Aulus will continue his mission to kill the Celt tribe’s every single man alive who will try to rebel. Celtic Queen Amena (Annabel Scholey) will also help him in his urge to become the sole power.
However, the Queen also seemed scared about the spirits from her past. She thinks that the spirits will come back to haunt her. Meanwhile, the actions of Aulus are raising uncertainties for the Druids.
And for the Druids and Celts, Cait is the only hope that can save the Britannia from the punitive rule of Aulus. Druid Divis (Nicolaj Lie Kaas) has been briskly training and transforming her to complete the prophecy.
However, Veran and Harka’s epic battle of Wills will act as a threat to the prophecy. That battle will divide the Druids, which is not good.

Therefore, Britannia Season 2 may premiere in the fall of 2019. However, Sky is yet to announce the premiere date for the second season. The audience is desperately waiting for the second season.
