How many Vinland Saga seasons & episodes are there?
Classic manga series have been transformed into well-executed anime series for ages, embodied by some stunning animations and incredibly talented anime voice actors as well. Vinland Saga is definitely an example of such a case, starting off in the form of a manga that’s still ongoing to this day.
Vinland Saga has been an absolute hit among anime fans, who compared it favorably to Attack on Titan due to its atmosphere, graphic content, and storyline, which was almost completely original and definitely unique when compared to other titles. It didn’t take long for the anime series to gain traction, and there are currently two seasons of the Vinland Saga anime series at the time of writing, although only one has aired so far.
The first season of Vinland Saga was released back in July 2019, while season 2 is scheduled for a January 2023 release. The first season consisted of a total of 24 episodes, each of which is approximately 24 minutes in duration. Vinland Saga Season 2 has yet to air, but we know that it is also going to contain a total of 24 episodes, which will bring the two-season total to 48 episodes, which is great for a modern-day anime series.
In what order should you watch Vinland Saga?
Vinland Saga fans will need to start off with the very first season of Vinland Saga to begin the story, following through in the episode’s numerical progression until the season’s conclusion. From this point, fans can easily continue with the upcoming second season of Vinland Saga, which is going to continue the series once it comes out in January 2023.

Vinland Saga filler episodes
Vinland Saga is a series with a very small percentage of fillers. Namely, only one of the 24 episodes – Episode 5, “The Troll’s Son” – is an anime canon episode and can thus be described as a filler, although it’s not a filler in the classical sense of the term. Episode 6 is considered to be a mixed anime and manga canon episode, but it’s mostly canon.
