Netflix already announced “The Witcher Season 2,” and the show has yet to premiere on the platform. The video streaming service confirmed the next season on social media telling fans, “Geralt’s adventure is only beginning…. The Witcher has been renewed for Season 2!.” Netflix first announced the small screen adaptation in 2017, and since then, fans of the franchise have been eagerly awaiting the show’s debut. If you need to set a reminder, “The Witcher Season 1” premieres on Netflix on December 20th.
The show is based on the “Witcher Saga,” a collection of eight novels and stories that tell of “witchers,” or children that have acquired supernatural abilities and are trained to hunt monsters. Andrzej Sapkowski wrote the original books, which were later turned into a best-selling video game franchise.
Netflix’s official description for the show reads, “Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.”
Henry Cavil is playing the role of Geralt of Rivia in the story, and the sorceress Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra. The role of Ciri is played by Freya Allan. Four episodes of the show’s first season are directed by Alik Sakharov, including the first episode, and Alex Garcia Lopez and Charlotte Brändström directed two episodes each.
Other Netfilx releases in December include Ryan Reynolds’ “6 Underground,” “The Two Popes,” and “Lost in Space: Season 2.” Netflix has several other big projects on the way, like “The Witcher” adaptation, “Green Eggs and Ham,” ” Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings,” and “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.”
