What is Britannia about and when's it on?

Britannia tells the story of the Roman Imperial Army of 43AD, and their determination to take over the Celtic heart of Britannia.

The Roman Army is led by General Aurus, who will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.

Sky Atlantic and Amazon signed a co-hosting deal to the rights of the show.

How did the last season end?

Season One ended with the Cantii close to meeting its demise with the Roman Empire boldly waging on.

But the most shocking part of the show's ending was Queen Kerra meeting her untimely death at the hands of General Aulus Plautius. But is it all as it seems?

And could she actually be making a return a la Game of Thrones' Jon Snow?

And Druid Divis also had a pretty horrible experience after being stabbed multiple times and discarded into the river.

But he wasn't the only one, poor Cait spent a large part of the finale buried alive.

The first season, more than anything, left many questions unanswered - perhaps to procure a second instalment of the show.

So it remains to be seen what happens to the characters as the lingering confusions get their solutions.

Where is Britannia filmed?

To make Britannia as authentic as possible, cast and crew flew all over the world, filming in various different locations.

The show features beautiful coastal scenery - some of which is CGI, and some backdrop locations include the Czech Republic and Wales.

Ten large sets were built for the drama, and more than 20 locations feature in the series.

Producers also had a copy of Stonehenge made, along with dwellings and a meadow near Mořinka, which is in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.

Production also headed to Velká Amerika, an abandoned limestone quarry near Mořina village. The old quarry of Alkazar was also used, along with its system of underground tunnels.

Filming also took place in the Prachov Rocks area near Hrubá Skála.

They also filmed horse riding shots at in Gower Peninsula, South Wales.
