The Witcher is one of the most popular and successful American television series that was premiered on 20th December 2019 on Netflix. The surprising thing about the drama is that even before the release of its first season Netflix officially declared to launch its second season in 2021.
Now, after watching season 1 all the fans of drama are welcoming this decision of Netflix as they can’t more wait to watch another season of their favorite show. The drama follows the incidents of the book of the same name written by Andrzej Sapkowski.
The series delivers the story of Geralt of Rivia a migrant beast hunter who lives his life by somehow managing in this unorthodox world. Now, people loved it a lot but they aren’t satisfied with the climax of the first season and want to watch the next season as soon as possible.
They are consistently asking about The Witcher Season 2 release date on Netflix. So, here is what we have known so far.
Has Netflix Revealed The Witcher Season 2 Release Date?
As we told you that the drama got renewed for the second time even before the arrival of the first season. But showrunners haven’t shared any information about its release date. The shooting of the second season had begun in London at starting of 2020. However, the way other movies and shows faced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic the same happened with The Witcher also.
The makers were forced to put a temporary suspension on shooting in March 2020 as one of their cast members namely Kristofer Hivju tested positive. However, this hurdle didn’t create many problems in their path as they began filming for The Witcher Season 7 episodes from 17th August 2020. So, almost they took a break of 5 months which will surely affect the release date of next season.
The showrunners haven’t yet shared any details regarding the exact release date of the second season. However, several trusted sources like Tomsguide are suggesting that the next season can arrive by the end of October 2021. So, now we have to wait until Netflix releases any official statement about the premiere dates of the second season.
How Will The Witcher Season 2 Plot Be?
In the first season, we have mostly seen the story revolving around the novels The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny. You will be surprised after hearing that these two books aren’t segments of the main series rather they are a pack of short fables that mainly includes characters from past stories.
So, components from these novels have been taken to customize the drama. Now, we have seen that Geralt and Ciri have discovered each other, that’s why it’s seeming that from next time show will shift towards the main series. However, Netflix hasn’t disclosed the name of the book that next season will follow.
But the first season ended with the confluence of all major characters and that’s why it’s appearing that events of the second season will be extracted from the next book. And, it’s none other than Blood of Elves – which is also the inaugural book of The Witcher Saga.
You can consider the first season as the beginning part of season 2. So, the second season will see what happened with Ciri and with her screak.
