The Witcher is a Netflix series based on fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The first season was released in 2018, and it quickly became one of the most popular TV shows on Netflix. Season 2, which will be released in 2021, is expected to be even more epic than season 1, if that’s possible! If you haven’t seen this show yet, prepare yourself for an adventure unlike any other.
The shooting of season two of Netflix’s The Witcher was done at Prague’s Barrandov Studios. It was started from April until July 13, 2019, with production continuing for 6 months up until February 2020. After the production, the complete wrap-up of the series was done, which is now being awaited for release.
Netflix announced the release date as October 2021, and now we can only wait impatiently before watching!
The show is based on a book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, which also serves as inspiration for CD Projekt Red’s video game trilogy. There are eight novels in the original Polish series published between 1992–2016 (plus an additional collection of short stories).
Season one covers books four and five, namely Baptism of Fire (1992) and Sword of Destiny (1993).
The show has been acclaimed by fans and critics alike, with a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for Season One(as of June 25th, 2019). It also won two Golden Globes at the 75th Academy Awards: Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture or Television Program. The Witcher Netflix series is not only one of the highest-rated shows currently airing. It’s also based out of Poland, which makes this Polish-American production revolutionary!
Right at the end of 2020, Netflix released the first page of the script for The Witcher season two, episode one. It doesn’t give a lot away, but it’s the best we’re going to get until a trailer finally rolls out!
The show is expected to release later this year, and I’m so excited because there are still several questions left unanswered from Season One that need answers like: “How will Ciri go back?” And “What really happened between her and Geralt in those missing years?” There were also some major character deaths (RIP Yennefer…) as well as unexpected twists. All these mysteries have me on edge waiting for more episodes!

I’m so excited to see what is in store for these characters. Have you read the books? They are seriously amazing! I can’t wait until we find out more about their future adventures or how they will wrap up the upcoming season.
Speaking from a fan perspective, Season one was better by leaps and bounds because we saw many different locations within The Witcher’s realm, as well as an increased focus on politics rather than just monsters to slay or people to save.
