The Witcher Season 2 Episode 1 is finally coming to Netflix on Friday, December 17th! The series was announced back in May and has been eagerly anticipated ever since. The show will be following the plot of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt game which is a perfect choice for those who haven’t played the video games or read the novels but still want to understand what’s going on. There are many reasons why you should be excited about this season, so let’s take a look at some of them!
About the Series “The Witcher”
The Witcher is a Netflix Original series based on The Witcher novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The show follows Geralt of Rivia, “a solitary monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.”
The books were translated into English and published for the first time between 1994-1995 and have only been released through CD Projekt Red’s video game franchise The Witcher from 2007-present day. The games are also considered to be successful, so it was an easy decision to turn them into a television show that will air exclusively on Netflix!
“The Witcher” Season 2 Renewal Status
The Witcher Season Two is confirmed and will be premiering in 2022. The show has been renewed for eight episodes, and the first trailer was released on March 28th, 2021. The cast will consist of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia along with Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May reprising her role from The Last Wish TV adaptation film series, and newcomers Mimi Ndiweni and Theresa Wilson-Read, who play sorceresses Fringilla Vigo respectively.
Official Release Date For “The Witcher” Season 2 Episode 1
The first episode of The Witcher Season Two is confirmed to premiere on December 17th, 2021. The series will consist of eight episodes, and the showrunner is Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who previously worked as an executive producer for Westworld.
Plot Expectations For “The Witcher” Season 2 Episode 1
Many potential storylines could be seen in The Witcher season two. But since there’s no official confirmation, all speculation should be left until a trailer or synopsis has been released. However, it was rumored sometime in early 2021 that Geralt would have his memories restored; in this upcoming season, which means he’ll remember everything, from The Last Wish film adaptation, including Yennefer’s death; at the hands of Koshchei the Deathless.
The reason for his memory being erased was because Geralt’s memories were too painful to live with, so he wanted to forget everything and be the man Yennefer loved before she died, not just a monster hunter.
The season will span eight episodes and is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Last Wish short story collection, which means it’ll be about two years after where The Lady Of The Lake left off in its first season or so.
“The Witcher” Season 2 Star Cast
The Witcher Season’s two-star cast is going to be a huge deal considering The Witcher has such an enormous following.

“The Witcher” Spin-Offs?
There have been rumors that The Witcher may get more than one season, but so far, there is no confirmation on whether The Witcher will get spin-offs.
There are a few ideas about what The Witcher Spin-Offs could be: for example, one of them could revolve around Geralt’s comrades in the “The Crimson Curse” questline, and another idea revolves around The Wild Hunt.
What do you think? Should The Witcher have more than one season, or should it just stop at Season two? Comment below!
