Netflix has announced that ‘The Witcher’ has been renewed for a second season. The second season will consist of eight episodes and begin filming in London in early 2020 for a 2021 release, a little over a year after the premiere of the first season.
On Twitter, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich commented:
“I’m so thrilled to announce: Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri will be back for more adventures… in Season Two.
I could not be more proud of what the amazing cast and crew of ‘The Witcher’ have accomplished, and can’t wait for the world to dig in and enjoy these stories with us.”
Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), and Freya Allan (Ciri) are so far the only cast members confirmed to be returning for season two. Season one additionally features Jodhi May (Queen Calanthe), Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (King Eist Tuisreach), Adam Levy (Mousesack), MyAnna Buring (Tissaia de Vries), Mimi Ndiweni (Fringilla Vigo), Therica Wilson-Read (Sabrina Glevissig), and Emma Appleton (Princess Renfri).
The series is currently planned for a total of seven seasons.
Netflix will release all eight episodes of ‘The Witcher’s first season on December 20th.
