The Witcher Season 2 Production Start Announced

Get ready to toss another coin to your Witcher.

On Twitter this week, the official Witcher account announced that season 2 of the fantasy drama is set to begin production on August 17th ahead of a planned 2021 debut. The news comes as various productions are gearing up to restart following the lockdown.

Witcher Starts Production

When The Witcher was first announced, I was intrigued and instantly went looking for the first book on which the new show was based ahead of the first season. I was even more excited when Henry Cavill was cast as Geralt, even as his future as Superman became a huge question mark. The first season of The Witcher, while uneven at times, was a pretty good foray into the sword and sorcery genre with a super catchy song that had everyone talking. Casting for season 2 has been underway for a while now, with Mark Hamill at one point rumored for the role of Vesemir, an older Witcher, though the part ultimately went to Killing Eve’s Kim Bodnia. With everything set, all that remained was a production start date that would ensure safety protocols were up to par to contend with COVID-19. I’m thrilled that everything has been figured out, and I can’t wait to see the further adventures of Geralt, Yennifer, and Ciri when the show returns to Netflix.

Are you excited for Geralt to grunt on screen again, or are you worried it’s been too long since we’ve seen the Witcher? What are you looking forward to most about the new season? Do you think Jaskier will perform a few new songs? Let us know in the comments and stay safe and healthy as Geeks + Gamers brings you more movie and TV news!

Oof, netflix’s Witcher was pretty bad show in my opinion even without reading books or playing games. And terrible adaptation, totally butchered source material. Although Henry as Geralt was good.
The polish Witcher tv show did a better job at adapting the stories from the books and it had no budget even though overall show was terrible too.
So yea, I am not waiting for season 2. :)

      I read all the books and played all 3 games and yea, they really did. Even though games take some liberties, they did capture everything right.
