The Witcher 2: when do the new episodes come out on Netflix? What is the second season about? Here are all the updates!
The Witcher: what is the release date of the second season on Netflix?
Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher was one of the series that audiences appreciated the most in 2019, thanks also to the interpretation of Henry Cavill.
The series is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher books but naturally took some inspiration from the CD Projekt RPG series as well. The second season is currently in production and the third is almost officially confirmed. The cast of The Witcher reunited on set starting August 17. Most recently, filming stopped in November due to four crew members testing positive.
In any case, The Witcher season 2 will premiere in 2021, but there is still no precise date.
What is the plot of the second season of The Witcher?
Netflix has released the teaser for the plot of The Witcher 2:
“Convinced that Yennefer is dead in the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia takes Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home in Kaer Morhen. As the continent’s kings, elves, humans, and demons fight for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses within. ”
According to showrunner Lauren Hissrich, season 2 will “dig deeper into Cahir and Fringilla,” the plot villains thus far.
It also leaked the fact that the plot of the second season will be much more linear. Now that all the main characters of The Witcher 2 are together in the same place and time, the timeline of the second season will be much easier to follow. As a result, the simpler timeline allows writers to use time in a way they couldn’t in Season 1. For example, Season 2 will use flashbacks to explore Geralt’s past.
