If you like the bounty hunter thing and mystical-magic shows, then you are happy to hear that you’re favorite “THE WITCHER” is going for another season. A second season was announced on November 13, 2019.
The announcement of The Witcher season 2 also came with the news that we can look forward to more episodes in 2021. Principal photography for season 1 began in October 2018, and the episodes released in December 2019, so we can expect a similar time scale for season 2’s production. The Witcher season 2 will begin filming in early 2020, so expect to see new episodes in mid-to-late 2021.
IN SEASON ONE
The Witcher is closely based on Sapkowski’s books, and season 1 concludes with the Battle of Sodden Hill, which marks the end of the first Northern War. The first season is primarily based on the first two collections of Witcher stories: The Sword of Destiny and The Last Wish, and also partly on the first novel, Blood of Elves. Notably, season 1 is split into three different timelines: Yennefer’s, Geralt’s, and Ciri’s. Geralt and Yennefer’s paths cross twice in the first season, and Geralt and Ciri finally meet each other at the end, where the three timelines converge. It’s likely, now that the characters are all caught up to one another, that The Witcher season 2 will have a more linear approach.
IN SEASON TWO
Now that Ciri is in Geralt’s care, we may see him take her to Kaer Morhen to train as a witcher – though based on his conversation with his mother, it seems Geralt may not be keen to inflict that kind of brutal training on his own child. Yennefer’s fate was left uncertain after she used her magic to defeat Nilfgaard’s army, and she may be weakened when The Witcher season 2 begins. In the books, Yennefer develops a close relationship with Ciri, so hopefully, we’ll get to see the two of them interact in the next season.
