The Witcher Season 2 Release Date, Cast And Plot
You can't outrun destiny — and the destiny for Netflix's The Witcher is another season. Based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher novels and shorts that were turned into a video game series by CD Projekt Red , The Witcher was already lined up for a second season prior to its official debut on December 20, 2019.
The action-fantasy show, created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, takes place in a medieval world within a realm called the Continent, and follows the lives of three unique but linked-together characters. Throughout the first season's eight episodes, viewers saw how the trio were molded by their individual experiences before meeting one another and The Witcher season 1 finale concluded with Ciri asking Geralt,
"Who is Yennefer?"
With The Witcher season 1 ending on that delicious, cliffhanger-y note, fans are understandably foaming at the mouth for any and all information about season 2. Though details are sparse for the time being, here's everything we know about the second season of The Witcher.
The Witcher season 2 doesn't have a confirmed release date as of December 2019. However, when the series' renewal was announced, it was reported that production on the new season will begin in London in early 2020 in preparation for a 2021 launch date. It wasn't specified when in 2021 The Witcher season 2 might premiere, but it's most plausible that fans won't be seeing more of the show until the middle of that year at the very earliest.
That said, the production timeline for The Witcher season 1 shows a two-year-and-seven-month gap between when the project was confirmed in May 2017 to when it premiered on Netflix in December 2019. While it certainly won't be that long of a wait for The Witcher season 2, if production is slated to begin around February or March 2020, fans could be looking at a summer 2021 debut date unless Netflix allots the cast, crew, and creatives more resources and funding to speed things up.
it's a given that the major players from season 1 will be back for the series' second go-around on Netflix. The trio's individual paths cross at the end of season 1 of The Witcher, and in Sapkowski's written works, they experience many trials, tribulations, and triumphs together after meeting.
