Are you desperate for information on The Witcher season2 on Netflix? I can’t say I blame you. Fans have been clamoring for information about season2.
The official The Witcher Twitter account stated that production is started, and fansite Redanian Intelligence claims to have photographs of the actors and crew filming at a church in Slovenia.
Given that scriptwriting wrapped up before the turn of the year and showrunner Lauren Hissrich shared photographs of some woods when exploring locales earlier this year, a new season could be on the way sooner rather than later.
Details regarding what—and who—we can expect to see in The Witcher season 2 are still scarce, so let’s take a look at what we do know thus far.
When Will the Second Season of the Witcher Be Released?
The Witcher season two will be available to view on Netflix on December 17th, 2021, according to the streaming provider.
The announcement was revealed at the first-ever WitcherCon in July 2021, two months after the streamer stated the series would return in the second half of 2021 in a letter to investors.
In a Reddit AMA earlier this year, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich announced the program would return this year: “We don’t currently have a target launch date for season two beyond 2021.” We don’t want the product to be rushed. That is not in anyone’s best interests.”
Due to the pandemic, filming was delayed for five months between March and August 2020, with another halt in November after a team member tested positive.
The Witcher season two concluded filming in April, more than a year after it began, with the cast and crew posting a photo of Henry Cavill‘s final day on-site to commemorate the occasion.
There will be plenty more to come – perhaps much sooner – as The Witcher has already been renewed for a third season, even though the second has yet to premiere (as reported during Netflix’s TUDUM event).
Season 2 Cast of The Witcher
Cavill, Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), and Freya Allan (Ciri) will all return for season two, according to Hissrich, which was expected considering that they star in a number of the books the program is based on.
The characters Triss (Anna Shaffer), Jaskier (Joey Batey), Cahir (Eamon Farren), Tissaia (MyAnna Buring), Stregobor (Lars Mikkelsen), Artorius (Terence Maynard), Filavandrel (Tom Canton), Murta (Lilly Cooper), Sabrina (Therica Wilson Read), Yarpen Zigrin (Jeremy Crawford), and Istredd (Royce) Mimi Ndiweni has a lot more to offer.
“One of the people we’re going to go into even more is Fringilla,” Hissrich stated (via Vulture). “We’re learning more about her background, including how she came to be at Nilfgaard, who she is as a person, and how she and Yennefer ended up on such opposing paths. She is given a lot more responsibility.”
Netflix has revealed a number of fresh casting additions, in addition to the typical CGI monsters and nameless orgy participants:
Nenneke will be played by Adjoa Andoh (Lady Danbury), Nivellen by Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones), Fenn by Liz Carr (Silent Witness), Dijkstra by Graham McTavish (Outlander), Ba’lian by Simon Callow, Rience by Chris Fulton (Bridgerton), Con by Yasen Atour (Young Wallander), Vereena by Agnes Bjorn (Monster), Lambert by Paul Bullion
The Plot of Season 2 of The Witcher
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich recently divulged some huge spoilers for the season two opening episode, which fans adored.
The first episode will be an adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s A Grain of Truth, one of the stories on which the program is based but was deleted from the first season, according to a Twitter video.
“It’s a narrative about a father and daughter reuniting in a place that doesn’t feel comfortable for them,” Hissrich revealed. “Of course, we really dig into Nivellen, who is played by the amazing Kristofer Hivju, and we get to explore his character and his past with Geralt as well.”
“It’s the ideal start to Season 2 since it’s all about family. It’s about the secrets we keep from one other, as well as the monsters we harbor on occasion “Hissrich went on to say something about the second season’s scheduled premiere episode.
