Both the audience and critics loved sky Atlantic’s high budget periodical drama. After the success of two seasons, fans are waiting for season 3. Tom Butterworth and Jez are the minds behind the show. The show revolves around the story of the Roman Empire’s invasion and their intentions of crushing the Celtic heart of Britannia. The show is packed with mad sorcery, deadly sword fights, druids and powerful women rulers, and much more. Fans were worried about the show’s future as Britannia’s US partner; Amazon prime, withdrew from the project. Although Sky greenlit season 3, it had to find a new home for the show. Season 3 will be exclusively available on Epix.
