When will the release date of season 2 of the series “The Witcher”
The new Netflix “The Witcher” was released, capturing the attention of serial fans and franchise fans, eager to learn more about the sequel. We have collected everything that is currently known about The Witcher season 2 release date to share with you the most verified and relevant information!
What is the series about?
The Witcher is based on the famous series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski in the fantasy genre, which are dedicated to the history of the monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, as well as those with whom he was to share his fate. In a world full of magic, monsters and internecine wars, powerful witches and sorcerers help the king’s rule, and witches are hired to save the people from the attacks of kikimor or wolkolaks.
In season 1, the plot of which is unusually taken from the storybook, and not from book 1 of the cycle, Geralt, a young princess without the kingdom of Ciri, witch Yennifer with a difficult fate, the sorceress Triss and the self-confident bard Buttercup find each other on the path of cruel adventures and funny revels, because here everyone has their own Destination.
The Witcher season 2: which actors?
Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan are all confirmed in their respective roles of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri.
Also resume service Joey Batey in the tunic of the bard Jaskier; Myanna Buring, magician and mentor of Yennefer: Anna Shaffer in the guise of Triss Merigold, another magician close to Geralt; Eamon Farron for Cahir, chief of the armies of Nilfgaard and Mimi Ndiweni as Fringilla Vigo, witch in the service of this same Empire of the South.
The Witcher season 2: what will be the scenario?
Season 2 of The Witcher will resume where Season 1 ended, namely meeting Geralt and Ciri.
Season 1 combines different periods. In the past, Geralt and Yennefer have met several times and Geralt knew that Ciri was his destiny, although he did not meet her until the very end of the last episode.
This episode also presents the battle of Mount Sodden in which Yennefer unleashes an extraordinary magic power against the army of Nilfgaard, before disappearing. Season 2 will follow Geralt as protector of Ciri and help him channel and control his mysterious powers inherited from his ancestors. As for Yennefer, nothing is certain, but she will reappear in one way or another. “She took a big risk in the end by launching her firepower,” Hissrich told Business Insider. No doubt she will have to live with the consequences of her actions.
How many episodes ?
The show’s runners made a very unusual move – all episodes of season 1 were shown on the same day, December 20, 2019. Why was the series not shown one episode a week like Game of Thrones? The fact is that Netflix is a streaming platform that makes money on online access to its library of films and TV shows. That is why it is completely unimportant for Netflix at what time the user of the service will watch a movie or series, how many episodes he will watch in a row – only an access subscription is important. In contrast to the HBO channel, which showed the series at the most expensive time for advertisers, on Sunday evening broadcast.
How many episodes will there be in season 2 of The Witcher? The second season will consist of eight episodes, as well as the first premiere season of the series. All eight episodes will be shown again in one day. When the 2nd season of the series “The Witcher” comes out, it will be announced at the bottom of the article, and for now some interesting facts about the series.
Release Season 2
The series was officially extended for the next season before the premiere. The exact date has not yet been announced, but there is nothing to worry about: this is a typical situation for Netflix. Streaming service is in no hurry with ads. Given that the series received season 2 in advance, the release date may be pretty close compared to regular seasons once a year. So far, it can be assumed that season 2 will be released in December 2020.
