The series fans like the Vikings and The Last Kingdom will go down well, followed by Germanic tribes trying to stop the evolution of the Roman Empire. Here is all that you need to know about the date, cast, trailer, plot, and more released by Barbarians.
When will be on-screen?
On 23 September 2020, Netflix released a new series of information and dropped an official trailer. At the end of the trailer, it reads: “Only on Netflix, 23 October” and so the audience is only a month away. Because this is an original of Netflix, every episode should land at once with the access of fans in the US from midnight. Fans in the United Kingdom generally have to wait until 8 am for the episodes to come down, but everyone should be available on that day. The first series will consist of six episodes, according to IMDb.
The cast of the show!
The Barbarians’ official IMDb page lists the whole series cast, including the major characters and extras. Gaetano Aronica, like Varus, Bence Ferenczi as Berulf Buddy Y, and Jeanna Goursand as Thusnelda are characters appearing in each of the six episodes. Jeremy Miliker plays Ansgar and Laurence Rupp plays Arminius. Tibor Milos Krisky plays Berulf Buddy. David Schütter and Bernhard Shütz as Segestes are mainly cast as Folkwin Wolfspeer. The majority of cast members are from Germany because this is a German series. The series was filmed in Hungary, so some Hungarian talent may also be there.
What can you expect from the plot?
The series is based on the struggle of the Teutoburg Forest, a real struggle where three Roman legions were embroiled by an alliance of Germanic tribes. Publius Quinctilius Varus led the Romans and Arminius the Germanic official led the Germanic Alliance. A Roman citizen, Arminius was capable of predicting the actions of the Roman army with his military background. They finally claimed victory over the Romans, because they never tried to conquer many German territories again.
The series will probably remain true to the facts and it should be accurate historically, and creative changes can be made.
