The Witcher is coming back for season 2 on Netflix! Production on season 2 starts in early 2020, and also season 2 is expected to hit Netflix in 2021.
The Witcher starring Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, as well as Anya Chalotra premiered on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 20. If you’ve been paying any attention, you understand this show is well on its way to becoming one of the largest Netflix shows of all time.
And, this terrific series from Lauren Hissrich is returning for season 2! Netflix introduced The Witcher season 2 is occurring prior to the initial season even premiered. That happens periodically for Netflix shows, still, generally this right after the premiere, we’re crossing our fingers and wishing a show is obtaining renewed. The Witcher followers do not even think about that stress now!
So, with season 2 already in the works, when will it be on Netflix?
Sadly, it’s probably going to be a long time till we see The Witcher season 2 on Netflix.
According to Variety, The Witcher starts production in very early 2020, so it starts filming quickly, and the new season is expected to hit Netflix in 2021. We still do not know when that will certainly be yet, however it’s mosting likely to be a some time.
Assuming everything goes well with production, we can see The Witcher season two anytime from springtime 2021 to late 2021. Based on the response to the series at San Diego Comic-Con and how much larger it will certainly be next time around, I’m hoping they save the series up until the fall or winter season of 2021. That would certainly be a good time to launch the new season.
Of course, that indicates that it will be almost 2 years from the premiere of the first season. That’s a long period of time for followers to wait, but realistically, I do not see this series having less than 18-month gaps in between seasons. This is a significant show to produce and also get right. It’s going to take a lot of time, especially considering this could be a show that lasts 3, 4, or even five seasons based on the source material by Andrzej Sapkowski. We do not want the writers, actors as well as team burnt out after a season or two.
So, that’s the best we can predict for the release day of The Witcher season 2 right now. Expect to see the new season in mid to late 2021.
We’ll make sure to let you know extra about The Witcher season two when we know! Stay tuned to find out more about the new season of the Netflix original series.
