One of the biggest upcoming releases of Netflix is Witcher Season 2. It is arguably one of the most awaited series and the same is for good reason. The first season of the series was one of the best Netflix shows with a mixture of political intrigue, Jaskier’s catchy bops, and monster hunting. What more fans are expecting in Season 2 of the series?
Some may find the first season confusing as two timelines were shown at the same time. Don’t worry as the same will not happen in the second season. Now that Gerald had met Ciri in the finale, not the first season, they will travel together. Yennefer is also expected to join them.
Shooting for the second season was started at the beginnings of 2020 but as of now, everything is halted due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. Let’s see below what we know about The Witcher Season 2.
Release Date of Witcher Season 2
The writer, Lauren stated at the beginning of 2021 that they do not yet have a target launch date for season 2, past 2021. In February 2020, filming took place in parts of Eastern Europe, London, and Scotland. But everything was stopped when one cast member tested positive for COVID-19.
Deadline states that the film industry may get going in September 2020. But, it is not known if Witcher will follow this trend or not.
There is no official release date of the second season but the same is expected to release by August 2021.
The official cast of Season 2
The confirmed cast for season 2 is Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Yasen Atour, Agnes Bjorn, Paul Bullion, Kristofer Hivju, Thue Ersted Rasmussen, Aisha Fabienne Ross, and Mecia Simson.
The Plotline for season 2
Hissrich stated, “That’s where we ended season 1. That’s absolutely where we will pick up in Season 2. The stories will be told in a much more linear fashion. They won’t all be one story. It’s not like all three are together and happy all the time. But, I do want to employ some different ways to look at the time series-wide.”
