Characters of Vinland Saga Season 2
Season 1 had the following main characters that gladden the audience. According to the director of the series Vinland manga season 2 would have some of the same stories as season 1. So it can presume that the upcoming season would have a few of the same characters as season 1. The main characters of the first season are the following.
Thorfinn is one of the main characters. He was voiced by Yuto Uemura a Japanese actor and singer. While he voiced by Shizuka Ishigami in childhood.

Askeladd’s father’s name was Viking Olaf and he was the son of a slave woman to whom he treated badly. He got the name Lucius Artorius Castus from his mother but he got the nickname Askeladd which means “covered in ash” as he worked for a blacksmith at an early age.
Thors stellar character is voice by Kenichiro Matsuda in the series. He was the father of Thorfinn, a Jomsviking who had expertise regarding war. After the birth of his children, he wanted to have a peaceful life with his family again. So in the Battle of Hjörungavágr, he showed that he had died.

His womanly traits cause mockery by the Vikings with whom he worked. He was unable to do anything without his retainer Ragnar. He had a strong faith in Christianity. After the death of Ragnar, his personality transformed. He became strong and kingly and had set his heart to create a utopia on earth. His character indicates towards a historical King Canute the Great who was Danish ruler of England.
Why Thorfinn want to take Revenge on Askeladd?
Before giving a brief detail about Vinland Saga Season 2 here is the storyline of the first season. It revolves around a Viking lord name Thors Snorresson. He is the proponent of the anime series; who relinquished a battle for the sake of a peaceful life with his family members again. But a former commander Askeladd who hired a mercenary group; wanted to take revenge from Thors for running away from the battlefield in the mid-way.
On the other side; Thorfinn a teenage warrior and son of Thors set out for exploration by ship without informing his father. But the mercenary group ambushed Thorfinn in the middle of his excursion. His father who was fighting with his all powers at last gave up when Thornfin was detained by the group. He vowed to take avenge for his father’s death that’s why he affiliated with the mercenary group. Now the second season will show how Thornfin will face the further hardships that would rise by Askeladd. The trailer of season 1 is below which credit is to Trailer X.

The fan following wants to see that how Thornfinn will tackle the troubles implanted by Askeladd in season 2. The show creators have tight-lipped about when we all can amuse by the next season, although they are teasing fans here and there. However, here is the all information that is available so far about the upcoming season.
As told earlier that show makers have kept the information in secret about the Vinland saga second season release date but here are the two hints to estimate the progress of the season.
A tweet by the director Shuuhei Yabuta in September 2020 gave some clues. The tweet contained a drawing of three main characters from the series. Drawings had some Nordic runes that translated to “season two”. Whether it was a green signal for the audience or a polite way to announce that the new season is in production. However, it’s all doubtful.
Abiru Takahiko a character designer tweeted in March 2021 that was possibly suggesting the working of Vinland season 2. He wrote that he has continued his participation in the production of Attack on Titan and he would like to lend a hand in The Ancient Magus Bride as a staff of Studio KAFKA. He added that he has another important work that he has to do the most.

Moreover; he said my discussion about a new season may not satisfy the fans but this is all that I can tell right now.
