Netflix will be releasing this month a historical drama from the director of Vikings, Steve Saint Ledger, together with Barbara Eder.
Titled Barbarians, the upcoming show will revolve around Battle of Teutoburg Forest in 9 A.D., where rival Germanic tribes joined forces to fight against the imperial Roman Army.
“We know the Roman perspective because writings have been handed down from the Romans,” Netflix’s International Originals Director Rachel Eggebeen said, Comicbook reports.
“But not from the Germanic side. The team at Gaumont has worked closely with historians, but at the same time also developed a great story with deep characters.” Eggebeen added.
Check out the show’s first trailer below:
Barbarians is created by Jan Martin Scharf, Andreas Heckman, and Arne Nolting. It stars Laurence Rupp, Jeanne Goursaud, David Schutter, and more.
The show will start streaming on Netflix this October 23.
