‘The Witcher’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix Ahead of Series Premiere

Clearly the announcement of a second season has some users divided, but it's interesting to see Netflix trying something new, especially with the recent launch of Disney+.

I'd be surprised if it ended after two seasons at this point.

Based on the Witcher novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, but also featuring nods to the popular videogame series, the Netflix series stars Cavill as Geralt, part of a breed of monster hunters known as Witchers.

"Good news: We've just confirmed that season two will go into production in the United Kingdom early next year!"

According to Variety, the eight-episode second season will begin production in London early in 2020 for a planned debut sometime in 2021. "I could not be more proud of what the wonderful cast and crew of The Witcher have accomplished, and can't wait for the world to dig in and enjoy these stories with us". Per Escapist magazine, Hissrich revealed to SFX Magazine that she has the series mapped out for seven seasons.

"And can't wait for the world to dig in and enjoy these stories with us". Directors and additional cast information will be announced at a later date, Netflix says.

This is the first time two swords have been spotted in any of the show's promotional materials.

Recently Lauren spoke out about the state of Geralt's character in the upcoming show. While The Witcher has also gone on to be a successful gaming franchise, the series will be an adaptation of the original source material.

If you're a Netflix subscriber, you basically have an endless supply of content at your fingertips, 24/7.

The Witcher comes to Netflix Dec. 20.
