Has Barbarians been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Barbarians is the latest historical drama on Netflix, whisking us back to the days of the Roman empire. After finishing all 8 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Barbarians Season 2 about?

This time around, things are much more dynamic and intricately tied. After establishing the character relations last time out, Barbarians season 2 starts to push for deeper alliances and bigger betrayals, setting up for a dramatic and bloody finish to this season.

Before we reach that point though, the story picks up a year after the big fight in the forest. The Germanic tribes have formed a loose alliance under Ari’s banner but there are some that question his rule. Ari is married to Thusnelda, and they have a child together. Of course, this causes friction with Folkwin, given he was originally in a relationship with Thusnelda.

Meanwhile, the Roman Empire is intent on revenge following the battle. Tiberius and his son Germanicus amass their forces and try to enlist the help of a tribal leader called Marbod, who becomes an integral part of this story moving forward.

We have extensive coverage of Barbarians across the site, including full season reviews for both seasons and various recaps too. You can find that HERE!


Has Barbarians been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Barbarians has not been renewed for a third season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.

Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Barbarians has had a mixed reaction from audiences and critics, with many pointing out the historical inaccuracies and story. However, the show is currently doing a great job hitting the top 10 on Netflix across various regions across the world.

Given the way this show is set up and that big cliffhanger at the end of season 2, we predict that this will be renewed for a third season. This is the perfect sort of show to binge through and very moreish too!

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 3 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 3 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, there’s a very good case for another season to follow.

If this is renewed, Thusnelda’s fate will be left in the hands of the Gods, as she’s whisked across to Rome, while those left behind may have won the battle against the Romans but the war is far from over.

As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!

  1. Thought the first season was just okay but the 2nd season was a huge improvement. It would be dumb of Netflix not to renew this for a 3rd season — there’s a lack of both TV shows & movies that fall in this genre of historical drama, even though there’s a demand for it. Historical inaccuracies aside, this series is engaging.

  2. Tbh I’m not interested in historic accuracies! I want 3rd season because it keeps me hooked. It’s so hard to find interesting movies/series these days, there’s lots of rubbish out there, but Barbarians is finally something worthy to watch. Please make more seasons.

  3. There really must be not only season 3 but further seasons. This is a great show, great plot good actors. Thoroughly enjoyable and very moorish! Please bring it back soon!

  4. Thusnelda has got to be the most bad as looking barbarian on movie screen, like ever.
    Plz a third season.

  5. This is a terrifically entertaining series, historical innacuracies aside, the actors are good, scenery is excellent and a good plot to boot. Don’t leave us hanging.

  6. You left the last episode of season 2 like that? You must put a season 3 up there. 🤷💯🤦

  7. Yes please this has been not only a well created series but the actors and action is really good.

  8. Waiting for season 3. 1&2 were great. Wish to know what happened to the baby and what happens when Ari finds out that its not his child.

  9. Please please bring it back.Must know what happened toThusnelda and her baby.By far one of the best dramas.9

  10. Season 3 would be appreciated, after the cliffhanger that season 2 ended on it’ll be very disappointing if they don’t renew.

  11. I loved every bit of season one and season 2 of the show! It definitely has to continue. Netflix you cannot live your fans disappointed. There is so much that can be done with the show to extend it to several more seasons given that there is so much historical facts and events that happened during that time period. I sincerely beg Netflix to give us fans what we want deserve and pay for!!!! Thank you!!! A loyal Fan!’

  12. The second season was absolutely captivating! One of the best historical dramas, I ever saw. The details, costumes and historical accuracy can be compared only to the Rome series. I’m waiting for season 3 and the next.

  13. Regarding Thusnelda and historical knowledge, she and her son became citizens of Rome. At first, she was a trophy but then accommodated to life in Rome, and then suddenly vanished from history books and became a kind of germanic myth.
    Season 3 would be filmed in ancient Rome, mostly and the production would be much more different and expensive. As she never returned back and never met her tribe again I doubt there would be season 3, but there were so many historical flaws that the show became the fictional “Game of Thrones”.

  14. Please please season 3 myself and husband both sick atm binge watched. Omg we have to know what happens next. Such an ending of season 3.

  15. Absolutely love the barbarians. I do hope you bring back a season three season two left quite a cliffhanger there. It doesn’t matter if it really follows history or not it’s a program that we very much enjoy watching and I will be watching to see when it comes out again I hope soon.

  16. I was so involved in each and every episode. This show by far is the best on Netflix right now. All the characters were intriguing. I was actually talking to my television at times. Cried alot to. It would be crazy not to renew this for a couple more seasons. There’s more to this story.

  17. I’m in Australia my German partner put me onto this. I binge watched S1 and S2, and there has got to be a S3 pleeeeeeeease.

  18. Please continue Barbarians for more seasons. We love this series. We watch an episode each night. I would binge watch it but my husband has more control than I do.
    We absolutely can’t wait to watch the next episode. Please bring it back.

  19. There has to be a third season. It is too good to stop now. They had to rescue them before they are taken to Rome.

  20. Best show on Netflix. Absolutely mesmerising. There has to be a season 3. Only a complete cretin would cancel it. It is unique. The blend of Latin and German is so incredibly atmospheric.

  21. Well if you study history of the time you will know the story and you will know why they should have stopped at 1 season (hint doesn’t end well for the Germans till about 400 years later when the goths got the better of a dying Roman empire)

  22. YES PLEASE We need 3rd Season Netflix need to know I will definitely cancel subscription if they don’t Renew Barbarians….

  23. I thoroughly enjoyed Season 1 and couldn’t wait for Season 2
    Same goes for Season 2.
    Please renew for Season 3 so we can find out if Ari gets his wife back from Rome and justice is served for Folkwin

  24. Yes please give 2 thumb for Season 3 love this kind of movies. This so far been one of my favorites bc like watch all viking movies I’ve seen this one 3 times.

  25. Please let there be a season 3. And please let it be as close to historical facts as possible. It was like watching History 2 channel with credible real life drama.

  26. I can’t wait for season 3 to be out. Please Netflix should make sure S3 comes out as soon as possible so that they should not loose there fans. It’s a well scripted move and a glue to someone eyes.

  27. Please make a season 3 Thusneldas fate must be revealed, the gods will let her and her child live!!! Arii will make a plan to save them for certain doom!!

  28. As big as Vikings who finished well. Please plan for further seasons. Eagerly waiting for the announcement

  29. Omg I want my Thusnelda!
    Back
    Netflix would be fools not to renew Barbabrians for a third season…we ALL love this show! Please please please. I waited all so long for second season now must wait for 3/4/5/6 please renewal

  30. Loved it. Absolutely hooked. Binge watched the whole of season 2 in one sitting. Let’s hope the Netflix Commissioners get the message – please keep us glued to another season. Great show.

  31. Barbarians season two is sooo much tighter and action driven than season one. With that being said, season three seems assured of continuing this trend. Its new storylines are well worth a third season. We have to see this story developed to its end and I believe it truly deserves that fate. Netflix, see it through to a proper and rightful ending!

  32. This NEEDS to have a season 3 and then hopefully 4,5, 6 and more! Amazing storyline and the acting is on point.. already can’t wait for S3 so I am dying to find out it HAS been renewed, don’t let us down Netflix. Amazing show, quickly became my favourite on the entire platform

  33. Netflix has a gem here with Barbarians I really wish for Season 3,4,5,6……….My on request is the show is called barbarians we need more violence more blood more viscera we need more fights and when they fight make it bloody like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez bloody ….ok so great show want more season 3 please

  34. I really enjoyed the Barbarians in the original language, German. And hope very much that there will be another season or even more. I’m sure there is plenty of material for the writers do this. It’s a drama for entertainment and if there are historical discrepancies, so be it. For me it’s escapism to another time and very enjoyable and let’s me forget the problematic time we live in at present.

  35. You have to keep going! This is a great show and super sad that it has ended without knowing the fate of these characters. Please bring on more!!!!!

  36. Rewatched Season 1 before watching season 2. The finale of season 2 must have a season 3. This series is very good, well written and the twist and turns leave you on the edge of your seat. Hope that there will be a season 3, there is so much you can do with this series

  37. I love the show and I love all the barbarians I vote them to fight and win each battle and im a viking fan and I play
    vahalla ps4 video game im a big fan and I love bench watching so please make a 3rd season and I voted 2 thumbs up on Netflix

  38. Me and all my friends love this series, please please make a season 3 and keep it going. Great story line, acting and a cliffhanger ending to season 2. You can’t leave it there.

  39. One of the best shows on Netflix!!!!! The Last Kingdom & Etugruel These 3 shows (hands down) Must Watch

  40. Absolutely loved, loved both seasons and can’t wait for season 3 and more to come. Great story line, drama, romance & action.

  41. My Wife & I, loved seasons 1& 2, we hope that a release date for season 3 will be in October 2023. Netflix fans all over the country are asking for an earlier date for the show!👏👌😃

  42. This is a no brainer! Advise to Netflix- bring season 3 AND at the same time, make season 4!. You will save money and make us happy!

  43. We love this series of 1 and 2, please don’t keep us hanging on the ledge. When will season 3 be released? We love the show and have convinced our friends to watch it too. We are all anxious for season 3. Great production and directing. Bravo

  44. Loved this series! Fabulous acting & sets. Kudos to the producers! Am disappointed to learn that Season 3 is up in the air.😕Hope Netflix will renew it as there’s a growing number of us movie buffs out there looking for more great historical pieces like this one. Windows to the making of present civilizations.

  45. One of the best on Netflix and they stopped at season 2 — unbelievable.
    What a cliff hanger and all set for a Season 3 — The historical background is pretty good as well so there is more to those telling and retelling than just a fictional drama. I found it to be a good balance in human nature and the struggle of people has always been for the freedom to live without being suppressed. The twists and turns kept me off guard and wanting more. The ending, hopefully, not the end, of season 2 was special and one can only imagine where this is going to end up.

  46. My Beautiful wife and I love the show. Please grant us a 3rd season. It is very well done. Thank you 😊.

  47. I loved both series, every second of them! Netflix, give us a third season… don’t leave us hang’n!

  48. I watched Barbarians season 1 yesterday and season 2 today and I can’t believe how it left us hanging. Please bring it back and don’t wait too long. Thank you!

  49. I was so addicted to watching the show, didn’t realize that it stopped at the end of Season 2.. now I am very upset! Please continue with season three

  50. Netflix knows that the best part of this “Barbarians” story is what comes after Season 2… So most probably Netflix won’t disappoint a good number of subscribers and the ever growing number of history movie fans and enthusiast..

  51. Wow! The may be some historical inaccuracies, and it’s definitely gorey, but well done, great cast, almost too realistic battles, decapitations, etc. BUT I am really hoping for a 3rd season!

  52. Season 1 & 2 were great! Please don’t leave us hanging after the way Season 2 ended. There must be a Season 3!!!

  53. Omg…it must return! Season 2 ending was crazy…not Thusnelda!

    Netflix would be fools not to renew Barbabrians for a third season…we ALL love this show!
