The Witcher Season 2 Updates: The Witcher is back, folks, and season two is happening. After Game of Thrones, fans continued with an endless void and hearts full of rage. Its unsatisfying ending rendered them hungry for more fantasies to move on from this tragedy.
The series originates from the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. An action role-playing game series was developed by CD Projekt Red and published by Atari on Microsoft Windows. Let us find out everything we know so far about the upcoming season.
Release Date of The Witcher Season 2
Showrunner Lauren S Hissrich confirmed that The Witcher had been renewed on November 13, 2019, five weeks before season one bewitched us all on December 20.
Unfortunately, there’s no official release date for season two just yet, and without Yennefer’s magic to guide us, it’s impossible to predict precisely when new episodes will drop, especially given Everything That’s Going On Right Now.
Filming has stalled on the vast majority of TV and movie productions, and it’s not yet clear when cameras will start rolling again.
An unnamed source close to the production confirmed to Deadline on March 16 that the show would be shutting down for two weeks. We have made the decision, effective immediately, to pause production for two weeks during this difficult time… this will allow everyone the time to make informed decisions about how to move forward.
Netflix had already shut down its US productions at this point, making The Witcher the first UK-shot Netflix show to shut down.
It’s not all doom and gloom though. While we patiently wait for season two, Netflix has also announced plans to develop a Witcher animated film that should whet our appetites in the meantime.
