Season 2 of The Witcher is returning to Netflix, and although the comeback of the fantasy drama does not yet have a definite release date, we are looking forward to seeing a number of new faces in the cast, some of whom have appeared in computer games. Thronebreaker’s Queen Meve of Lyria: The Witcher Tales was cast, as was a voice actor from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The production of Witcher Season 2 has already been affected by the coronavirus, but it has again been plagued by positive cases set in November and an injury to Geralt himself, Henry Cavill. As Stephen Surjik wrapped up his time directing the show, at least the first two episodes seemed to have completed filming. The tentative release date is still set for 2021, but after unwelcome delays in shooting, it could well be by the end of the year.
The Witcher season 2 Release Date
The release date of Season 2 of The Witcher is scheduled for 2021, but Netflix has not yet announced an official date and will not be for a long time. Lauren S. Hissrich said in a Reddit AMA on the topic of release dates that “We don’t yet have a target launch date for season 2, past 2021.” However, based on Redanian Intelligence, we might now be able to narrow it down.
Still, depending on a study by Platige Image, the explanation we might expect the release date of The Witcher season 2 to be August 2021. The April 27 study said its work on all eight episodes of Season 2 of The Witcher is due to take place in July 2021. Even it is unknown if the planned release date of the show would be affected by coronavirus delays.
If this article is right, that means that we also know that for season 2 there will be eight episodes in total, which makes it the same as season 1.
- Henry Cavill (Geralt)
- Anya Chalotra (Yennefer)
- Freya Allan (Ciri)
- Three new witchers are apparently joining the cast: Lambert, played by Paul Bullion, and Coën, played by Yasen Atour.
- In September, reports circulated that the show had recast the upcoming role of Eskel, who will be played by Swiss actor Basil Eidenbenz.
Now that we have the official synopsis for Season 2 of The Witcher, it is reported that Ciri will take center stage, as planned. With Geralt assuming that Yennefer died at the end of the first season at the Battle of Sodden, the White Wolf brings his young mystical charge to Kaer Morhen’s childhood haunt. Expect some fantastic, sweeping views of Geralt’s house, if the games are anything like that.
