The Witcher Season 2 Has Already Been Greenlit by Netflix

In addition to these details, Netflix also released an image of Geralt's swords side-by-side - mimicking the Roman numeral for two. The eight-episode first season will launch on Netflix on December 20.

Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner of the series, has announced that The Witcher season 2 is already a go at Netflix.

"I'm so thrilled to announce: Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri will be back for more Season Two", wrote Hissrich on social media. Geralt hunts down monsters who kill mythical beasts for money. While the best-selling novel series has also inspired a beloved video game series (which, in turn, inspired a series of comics), the Netflix show will specifically follow the books.

The streamer has renewed the drama series starring Henry Cavill, which is based on the book series of the same name by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Netflix renews The Witcher ahead of premiere! But when destiny hurtles Geralt toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a unsafe secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

"Right now it's just about 'How do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?' The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into Season 1, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to", Hissrich said. Additionally, Jodhi May appears as Queen Calanthe, alongside Björn Hlynur Haraldsson as King Eist Tuirseach, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia de Vries, Mimi Ndiweni as Fringilla Vigo, Therica Wilson-Read as Sabrina Glevissig, and Emma Appleton as Princess Renfri.
