The second season will have eight episodes just like the first season. For now, the plan is to get the show into production in early 2020 for a 2021 release date. Even better, it seems like the main cast will be returning for the second season.
Henry Cavill will continue to play Geralt, Anya Chalotra is returning to play Yennefer, and Freya Allan will be back as Ciri.
The Witcher is an adaptation of Andrej Sapkowski’s dark fantasy novels start with The Last Wish if you want to give them a try. The sources are telling that maybe Netflix’s Witcher show could run for up to seven seasons.
This is how Netflix describes the show The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
It’s not surprising to hear Netflix really leaning into this show. The Witcher is a massively popular franchise to tap into, as the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski have spawned into video games, tabletop games, and comic books.
Regardless of what you’re into, there seems to be a Witcher property in there for you to enjoy, and it seems only natural for the franchise to dip into streaming television.
But for Netflix specifically, it helps them stand out when some really fierce competition in the streaming space has started to emerge.
Obviously, Disney+ is the largest streaming competitor, but with more and more new services sprouting up every day, like Apple’s new streaming service and the forthcoming HBO Max, it’s important that Netflix keep the great content coming.
We’re excited to see what The Witcher has to offer, and we’re even more excited that we have two amazing seasons ahead of us! The first season will premiere only on Netflix on December 20.
