Netflix Renews The Witcher for Season 2
Nov 13, 2019
Just weeks ahead of the series’ December 20 premiere, Netflix has announced that The Witcher has been renewed for a second season.
Based on the bestselling novels -- which, in turn, inspired hit comics, collectibles and merchandise — The Witcher is, per Netflix, “an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.”
In a statement, Executive Producer & showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said, “I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt [Henry Cavill], Yennefer [Anya Chalotra] and Ciri [Freya Allan].”
Both the first and second seasons will run eight episodes.
