Sky Atlantic has released three first look images from the upcoming second series of Britannia...
Two years on from invading Britannia, General Aulus (David Morrissey) is romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena (Annabel Scholey), and crushing those who try to resist. Aulus’s behaviour raises suspicions that he has another agenda; one that raises ghosts in Amena’s past and makes his threat to the Druids ever more critical.
The only form of hope for the Druids and Celts is Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox), a young girl being trained by outcast Druid Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), to fulfil a prophecy that would save Britannia from the Romans.
But when the dead man wakes, two Druid brothers - Veran (Mackenzie Crook) and Harka (Mackenzie Crook) begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.
Watch Mackenzie Crook's 2.5 hour makeup transformation into Harka, condensed into a 40 second timelapse.
Britannia is created by Jez Butterworth, Tom Butterworth and James Richardson. Series two is written by Jez, Tom and John-Henry Butterworth. Produced by Rupert Ryle-Hodges and executive produced by Vertigo Films’ James Richardson; and Neal Street Production's Sam Mendes, Pippa Harris and Nicolas Brown with Jez and Tom Butterworth. Britannia Series 2 is co-funded and will be distributed internationally by Sky Vision.
