The Witcher season 2 is coming to the online streaming service providing platform, Netflix, and while the return of the fantasy drama does not have a specific date of release yet, we do get to look forward to witnessing a raft of some new faces in the cast, some of which have already appeared in the video games.
Queen Meve of Lyria from The Witcher Tales has been a cast member and also a voice actor from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The coronavirus has already impacted production on The Witcher season 2, but it has been troubled again following positive cases onset in the month of November.
At least the very first two episodes of the series appeared to have completed filming, as Stephen Surjik finally wrapped up his time directing the epic show. The tentative date of release is still set for the year 2021, but it may well be to the end of the year following the unwelcome breaks in the filming.
We do know a fair amount about The Witcher season 2 so far when it comes to the cast members and story. The official logline of Witcher season 2 is as follows: “Convinced Yennefer’s life was unfortunately lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt brings Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen.
While the kings, humans, elves, and demons of the continent strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect that girl from something far more dangerous than the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
The Witcher Season 2 Updates
From this description, it sounds like we are going to be seeing some of Ciri’s Witcher training period under the tutelage of Vesemir, who is an actual character and, of course, Geralt himself.
Suppose you’ve read the books and played the games. In that case, you might be wondering when the monstrous Wild Hunt will be making an appearance; perhaps the second season will introduce them, considering how Ciri is now tapping into her really ambiguous ‘powers’, something which is a draw for the ghostly cadre.
The Witcher season 2 release date is set for the year 2021, but an official date has not been revealed by the streaming service giant yet and would not be for a long time.
On the subject of release dates, Lauren Hissrich said in a Reddit AMA that “We do not yet have a target launch date set for season 2, past the year 2021.” Still, they may now be able to narrow it down based on the intel from Redanian Intelligence.
I’m dusting off my lute and quill,
I have some news, some mead to spill:
After all the months we’ve been apart
It’s time for production to restart.
The Witcher and his bard – who’s flawless,
Will reunite on set 17 August.
