On Friday, October 23rd, Netflix is releasing a new German series: “Barbaren”. It takes place in the year 9 AD and deals with the so-called Varus Battle, which changed the history of Europe. Germanic tribes united at that time and went together to fight the almost invincible Roman legions.
Netflix filmed this event in a six-part series. At the center of the bloody clash are three childhood friends who are linked by a tragic fate.
They become the decisive 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.
