The Witcher season 2 release date: August 2021?

The Witcher two-season launch date is expected for 2021, however, a formal date hasn’t been revealed by Netflix yet — and will not be for a long time. On the topic of release dates, Lauren S. Hissrich said in a Reddit AMA which “We do not yet have a target launch date for season 2, past 2021.” These were in the pre-coronavirus days, nevertheless, and it’s likely plans have changed a lot since that time.

Still, the reason why we could see The Witcher season 2 release date set for August 2021 is based on a report by Platige Image, a special effects company behind season 1 and 2. The report from April 27 said its work on all eight episodes of The Witcher season 2 is due July 2021. Their job for season 1 was due November 2019, along with the series launched a month later. Nonetheless, it’s uncertain how coronavirus flaws will affect the show’s targeted release date.


Following an extensive first coronavirus-based delay, Netflix formally confirmed the Witcher season 2 declared filming on August 17, 2020. But while it seems like episodes 1 and 2 have completed filming, The Witcher season 2 filming has been put on hold again in November 2020 following four Covid-19 diagnoses on-set in London.

Then production was dealt another blow as Henry Cavill had to take a break after an injury in December 2020. Cavill suffered a”minor leg muscle trauma”, which the series is adapting and continuing to picture.

Either way, expect The Witcher season  2 launch date at a certain stage in 2021, afterward, even if it’s likely to come later than expected. filming is projected into the following year; this could indicate a later release towards the end of 2021.
