Just after the release of the 24th and final episode of the Vinland Saga anime “End of the Prologue,” the official website of the show posted a teaser “special video,” which teases the manga’s next arc that comes where the anime left off the story.

Another thing to note is that the video does not announce any news of the sequel; it simply is teasing the manga’s next arc, which would get adapted in the near future. The teaser shows moments from the Slave arc from the manga, which starts in chapter 55.
The director of the anime, Shuhei Yabuta, thanked all his fans on Twitter in English for supporting Vinland Saga.
Thank you for watching #VINLAND_SAGA ! Without your encouragement, my team could never finish the work! I'm very pleased to engage in conversation with everyone through this title! The story ends once, but I would be grateful if you could keep expanding the world of VINLAND! https://t.co/IT6JWVzCQK pic.twitter.com/5ogjkPrrtn

The Vinland Saga anime was announced by Twin Engine on March 19, 2018, and that it would be adapted by Wit Studio. The anime aired on July 7, 2019, with three episodes and ended on December 29, 2019. The anime is based on the ongoing manga series created by Makoto Yukimura. The manga started getting published on April 13, 2005, in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine and then later moving to seinen magazine Afternoon. The manga has been collected in twenty-three tankobon volumes.
The story revolves around Thorfinn, a mercenary who was born in a frozen village in Iceland, who grew up listening to stories of old sailors that sailed the seas and reached a legendary place called Vinland. The legend goes that Vinland is a peaceful place with warm weather and fertile plains. Meanwhile, the war is going on strong, and the mercenaries are having the time of their lives. Among all of this, Thorfinn looks to take revenge on his father, Askeladd’s death, by killing the person who murdered him.
