The Witcher was one of 2019’s most talked-about Netflix series as a fantasy adventure starring Henry Cavill, and the hype didn’t die as soon as the reviews started (and the showrunner responded to them).
Statistics now show that The Witcher could be the most significant original series premiere of the streaming giant ever since its release on December 20, 2019, but there is a catch. The statistics are from Netflix and only Netflix.
What is The Witcher all about?
Okay, if you’re NOT a fan of videogames, you have to ask yourself what all the fuss is about?
The Witcher is a videogame in which a Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, is a mutant capable of using magic and forced to kill monsters.
Also, the videogame was influenced by a Polish fantasy book written by Andrzej Sapkowski, which began publishing in 1993.
He is an outcast like in our society and is not valued AT ALL by humans! (Extreme, right?) So much material now available for a proper TV series, Netflix and Marc Jobst caught the chance.
In season 1, The Witcher is looking for his destiny bounded by a princess who has incredible power (well most of the cast does).
When will The Witcher season 2 release?
After season 1 was released on Netflix, fans were unable to contain themselves, and so the show started amazing.
Netflix had announced season 2 before even release of season 1. But Netflix announced that production for season 2 would not begin until the release of season 1.
Now that season 1 has been released, we can expect season 2 development to commence in early 2020.
We can only hope that the crew finishes their products on time, and season 2 might hit the screens in 2021.
What will be the cast for season 2?
Since none of the principal characters died in the first season, we should expect them to stay the same. Henry Cavill will undoubtedly return as Gerald of Rivia.
The co-stars of Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan will also be reacting to the deadline news. Chalotra plays Yennefer while Allan takes on the role of Ciri.
What will be season 2 about? [SPOILERS]
Well, season 1 ended pretty nicely as Gerald met his destiny Ciri, and they hugged as soon as they saw each other. AWW*) Meanwhile, Yennefer fought Nilfgard, and nearly all of her magical friends died.
We’ll see how Yennefer’s war ends, and how Gerald holds Ciri safe. Which, then, are the powers of Ciri exactly?
Already we’re positive season 2 won’t be the end of the show as what Lauren spoke at MCM Comic Con’s Witcher panel in London last month.
She said we wouldn’t be able to cover everything even if Netflix continued streaming The Witcher for the next 20 years.
She also said The Witcher is based on the novel rather than on video games because she doesn’t want to adapt and adopt.
As soon as we hear more about The Witcher season 2, We will surely update you. Stay Tuned!
