Back in November 2019, Variety reported that The Witcher had already been renewed for a second season. Netflix was pleased with the show, and it became a hit with audiences, too.
Netflix’s second season of The Witcher
“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to the Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri,” showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said at the time.
According to Variety, “Schmidt Hissrich will also return as executive producer on season two, along with Tomek Baginski, Jason F. Brown, Sean Daniel, Mike Ostrowski, Steve Gaub, and Jarosław Sawko.”
Season two’s production title is reportedly “Mysterious Monsters.”
The Witcher season-two trailer
There’s no trailer for season two just yet, but you can check out the first eight-episode season of The Witcher on Netflix right now.
And, once you’ve seen the show, there’s plenty of fantastic Henry Cavill content to keep you busy till season two ramps up.
The Witcher’s returning cast
Variety reports that all three leads have signed on for more. “Cavill will return for the second season as protagonist Geralt of Rivia, with Anya Chalotra returning as Yennefer, along with Freya Allan as Ciri.”
Season two’s release date
Netflix has confirmed that season two of The Witcher is coming, but there’s no firm release date just yet.
“The eight-episode second season will begin production in London early in 2020, for a planned debut in 2021,” Variety reported last year.
Take that with a grain of salt, of course, given the state of the world; COVID-19’s affected a number of productions in the TV and film industry.
But we might still see season two next year.
The Witcher renewed for season three
The Witcher fansite Redanian Intelligence reports that Netflix’s series has already been quietly renewed for a third season. A rumor on Twitter back in July suggested that it’d gotten the “Sabrina deal,” meaning Netflix had greenlit three seasons at once.
Now, The Witcher season three has been added to the Writers Guild of America database. Production on the third season will apparently take place sometime next year, barring pandemic-related scheduling shifts.
