The Witcher Season 2 Has Already Been Greenlit by Netflix


Production for the series' second season will get underway in London early next year, with a debut on Netflix set at this point for 2021.

Weeks before The Witcher's launch on Netflix, the streamer has renewed the fantasy series starring Henry Cavill for a second season.

Lauren also posted on Twitter: "I'm so thrilled to announce: Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri will be back for more adventures... in Season Two". "How did they already order a season 2 of The Witcher when it hasn't even started?"

The series is based on the namesake fantasy novels, though the brand is widely known through the bestselling video game franchise. But when destiny hurtles Geralt toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a risky secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together. The series follows Geralt of Rivia, played by Henry Cavill, who is a monster hunter on The Continent, before and after he meets Yennefer, a sorceress, played by Anya Chalotra, and Ciri, played by Freya Allan. We caught up recently with Schmidt Hissrich herself to talk about the show - how it came together, why she wanted to take this project on in the first place, and what fans can expect once it's finally here. Additionally, Jodhi May appears as Queen Calanthe, alongside Björn Hlynur Haraldsson as King Eist Tuirseach, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia de Vries, Mimi Ndiweni as Fringilla Vigo, Therica Wilson-Read as Sabrina Glevissig, and Emma Appleton as Princess Renfri.

The eight-episode first season of The Witcher will begin streaming on December 20.
