A Second Season Has Been Announced For Netflix’s The Witcher

The first season may not have even hit our screens yet, but it seems Netflix’s The Witcher has been secured for a second season as confirmed by the series showrunner.

Sharing the news on Twitter, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich writes: “I’m so thrilled to announce: Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri will be back for more adventures… in Season Two. I could not be more proud of what the amazing cast and crew of The Witcher have accomplished, and can’t wait for the world to dig in and enjoy these stories with us.”

It’s good news for fans, though something that we could have predicated coming thanks to some hints from Hissrich.

She previously stated that there’s up to seven seasons’ worth of content in mind for the show, though we’ll see how Netflix feels about that.

Speaking to SFX earlier this month, Hissrich said: “I’ve [mapped out stories] for seven seasons,” said Hissrich. “Right now it’s just about, ‘how do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?’ The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.”

From the sounds of things, it’s all down to Netflix to decide just how far it wants to take The Witcher. Hopefully reception to the first season will be positive!

The Witcher’s official description reads as follows: “The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

“You can’t outrun destiny just because you’re terrified of it. Henry Cavill is Geralt of Rivia. The Witcher arrives December 20.”
