DESCRIPTION:
(from EPIX's press release, June 2020) Premium network EPIX(R) today announced that Season One of the critically-acclaimed fantasy drama Britannia will debut on August 2. Immediately after, EPIX will exclusively premiere Season Two for U.S. audiences on Sunday, October 4 at 9pm, and will be the exclusive U.S. home to Season Three, which is currently in production. Produced by Vertigo Films in association with Neal Street Productions and Sky Studios, Britannia is a genre-bending, psychedelic tale of clashing faith systems, torn apart families, mystic men, powerful women, all told with humor, heart and violence. Set in 43 A.D., the first season of this epic and visionary drama follows the Roman invasion of Britain when the country ruled by the powerful Druids and warrior queens. Britannia follows the reluctant rise to power of Kerra (Kelly Reilly), daughter of the King of Cantii (Ian McDiarmid), and her arch-rival Queen Atedia (Zoë Wanamaker), who are forced to put their differences aside when the Romans invade Britannia. Meanwhile, rogue Druid Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), the only one who foresaw the Roman invasion, finds an unlikely ally in a 12-year-old Cantii girl, Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox), in his quest to defeat Rome. The Romans are led by General Aulus Plautius (David Morrissey), who is determined to succeed where Julius Caesar failed and conquer this mythical land at the far edge of the Roman Empire, Britannia.
