Just weeks before the series premiere for Netflix’s upcoming fantasy series, they announce that a second season is already in the works.
The announcement came out this Wednesday by the streaming giant and with that also the information that filming starts in London at the beginning of 2020 and debut in 2021.
“The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified,” describes Netflix the plot in their synopsis.
It is based on the novel series by the same name, written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, which has been adapted to many projects such as a successful video game series in 2007. Actor Henry Cavill stars as protagonist the grim Geralt of Rivia, along with co-stars Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri. All three are set for the second season. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is the showrunner, and executive producer along with Tomek Baginski, Jason F. Brown, Sean Daniel, Mike Ostrowski, Steve Gaub, and Jarosław Sawko.
“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri,” said Schmidt Hissrich in the announcement.
The first season with the eight series-opening episodes will be released globally on December 20th at Netflix.
