We still have over a month before the highly anticipated Netflix show, The Witcher debuts, yet the streaming service has decided to renew the show for a second season.
This move indicates that Netflix likes the show’s reception even though it hasn’t released season one yet. It could have something to do with the reception gained by the most recent trailer, which was released earlier in the month.
Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich announced the news on Twitter yesterday and will return as executive producer of the second season. According to Variety, the eight-episode season 2 will begin production in London in early 2020 with a planned debut of 2021.
The Witcher was created by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, who released a series of short stories and novels. It has since turned into a big multimedia franchise, which includes graphic novels, a Polish movie, and series, but most notably, the popular video game series developed by CD Projekt Red.
The show’s story takes from the novel, with the most recent trailer portraying the dark fantasy world in all its mystery. Henry Cavill plays the titular Witcher Geralt, while Anya Chalotra plays the powerful sorceress Yennefer and Freya Allan, the young princess Ciri.
Season one of Netflix’s The Witcher will premier on December 20, 2019.
