Netflix has released the extended trailer for its upcoming action-adventure German series "Barbarians." The trailer shows some epic battle scenes between the Romans and German tribes. The six-episode german-original series will arrive worldwide on October 23 at Netflix.
Created by Arne Nolting & Jan-Martin Scharf and Andreas Heckmann, the series is set during the battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD that halted the spread of the Roman Empire.
In the year 9 AD, several Germanic tribes unite to challenge the almost invincible Roman legions in a legendary battle: The battle in the Teutoburg Forest will change the history of Europe. At the center of this bloody clash are three childhood friends who are linked by a tragic fate. They become the all-important force in the fight against the superior Roman power. Her path is marked by loyalty and betrayal, love and hate - and ultimately proves to be a dramatic test of a friendship between three young people.
The Cheruscan prince's daughter Thusnelda (Jeanne Goursaud) and the simple warrior Folkwin (David Schütter) are secretly a couple. But soon the two are challenged in a completely different way: the Roman occupiers under governor Varus (Gaetano Aronica) extort crushing tributes from the Germanic tribes, which are too enemies to defend themselves together. Thusnelda and Folkwin decide to act on their own and humiliate the empire in a daring night-and-fog act. To avenge the shame, the Roman governor sends out his foster son. But the young Roman officer (Laurence Rupp) has a secret that connects him closely with Thusnelda and Folkwin. Torn between the two hearts that beat in his chest, the young man has to choose one side - and betray the other. The three become the driving force behind the uprising, which unites the divided tribes into an army. Together they deliver one last battle to the superior Roman superpower, which will also change the lives of the three friends forever.
The first historical Netflix Original Series was created with great narrative force: a spectacular and highly emotional action drama, a gripping story that inspires the viewer with the highest degree of authenticity. Jan Martin Scharf and Arne Nolting acted as showrunners and, together with Andreas Heckmann, also as scriptwriters. In the staging by Barbara Eder and Steve St. Leger, Jeanne Goursaud, Laurence Rupp and David Schütter inspire in the leading roles.
Barbarians is the first German Netflix original from Gaumont, represented by producers Sabine de Mardt, Andreas Bareiss and Rainer Marquass. The cast includes David Schütter (Charlie’s Angels), Laurence Rupp, Gaetano Aronica, Bence Ferenczi, Jeanne Goursaud, and Bernhard Schütz.
