Season 2 of Vinland Saga is underway and already delivering its trademark action, slick animation, and top-tier voice acting. In the aftermath of Season 1, we’re looking forward to seeing many characters make their return, especially the golden-haired prince (or princess if you’re in Askeladd’s crew), Canute. In anticipation of the return of the pampered royal heir, many are wondering who voices Canute in Vinland Saga Season 2. We’ve got the answers for you.
Three voice actors have stepped into the shoes of Canute.
Who Is the English Dub Voice Actor for Canute in Vinland Saga Season 2?
For those of us watching on Netflix’s English dub, he is voiced by Griffin Burns, who is set to make his return as the prince-turned-king in Season 2. Burns, an accomplished voice actor working in the industry since 2010, has lent his pipes to an impressive number of anime dubs, including Shalnark in Hunter x Hunter, Colt Grice in Attack on Titan, and Udo in Mob Psycho 100.
In 2021, Sentai Filmworks acquired the home video rights and released its own dub, separate from the Netflix dub created by Voice Script International in Los Angeles. Sentai’s version was brought to the anime streaming service HIDIVE, where the voice behind Canute’s English dub is Josh Grelle, best known for voicing Armin Arlert in Attack on Titan and Fumikage Tokoyami in My Hero Academia. Grelle is also expected to return to dub Canute for the HIDIVE platform.
