The second instalment in Sky Atlantic’s homegrown tale of Roman invaders, warring Celtic tribes and drugged up Druids clashing in ancient Britain is set to arrive in time to fill the Game of Thrones-shaped hole in your lives…
Set in the 1st century AD, Britannia is described by our reviewer as “Game of Thrones meets the most debauched year you ever had at Glastonbury”. It charts the arrival of Roman forces into a world of feuding local tribes – the Regni and the Cantii – Druids, demons and prophecies.
David Morrissey is Roman general Aulus Plautius, Zoë Wanamaker plays Regni Queen Antedia (last seen imprisoned in the Cantii dungeons) and Mackenzie Crook is Druid leader Veran.
Annabel Scholey, Hugo Speer and Julian Rhind-Tutt also star.
Britannia is created by Jez Butterworth – who wrote acclaimed plays Jerusalem and The Ferryman and co-scripted James Bond film Spectre – together with his brother Tom Butterworth and James Richardson. Season two is written by Jez, Tom and John-Henry Butterworth.
Britannia was shot last year in Wales and Prague.
