You’ve binge watched “The Witcher”, tried to figure out the timeline, now what? Look forward to the 2nd season of course.

With the 8-episode series making a bigger splash than Geralt in that bathtub, it’s no surprise then that “The Witcher” season 2 has already been confirmed. Here are a few things you can expect:

1. “The Witcher” Season 2’s release date

In speaking with Games Radar, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich revealed:

What’s great about season 2, I can tell you, is that, in what we’ve written, the story becomes much more focused. There’s a stronger drive in the story, because all of the relationships that we’ve been setting up in season one, actually start to come into fruition in season 2.

“Characters start meeting and interacting more. That goes well sometimes. It doesn’t go well sometimes. But it’s kind of like, all of those building blocks that we set up for the world, finally start to come together into something a little more concrete.”

The storytelling will not only be more intense, but we’ll get to delve into the relationships between “Geralt and Yennefer; Geralt and Ciri; Yennefer and Ciri“, plus “all of the different kingdoms that you just barely hear about in season one, start rising to the surface in season 2“.

After playing with timelines in season 1, Lauren S. Hissrich shares that Geralt (Henry Cavill) and Ciri (Freya Allen) will skip forward to where the story needs to go in the new episodes.

The 2nd season of the story, you know the stories sort of progress in time and we’re in new places and new things. So we’re actually mostly shooting in the UK and season 2, which is helpful for me because post production is also in the UK,” she added. “We’re going to be down in one place for a bit, which will be nice.”

4. The next season will be based on which book adaptations?

It is said that the 1st season was based mainly on short story collections from “The Last Wish” and “Sword of Destiny”. The next phase will likely draw from the 5 “Witcher” novels starting with “Blood of Elves”.

As Digital Spy points out:

This arc follows Geralt and Yennefer as they fight to protect Ciri from various forces on The Continent who wish to use her power for themselves. Along the way, Geralt trains Ciri in the lore of Witchers, teaching her how to fight monsters while Yennefer helps her control the magic powers that threaten to consume the young girl entirely.”

Death comes for all of us, eventually. The only way to cheat it is to have a legacy.

Will we get any answers to these:

  • Ciri’s prophetic trance in episode 7 “Before a Fall” when she was warned of a potential apocalypse.
  • The Witcher’s mother: Flashbacks suggest that Visenna is Geralt’s mother.
  • What was Geralt’s final wish? Some think that it might revolve around Yennefer’s infertility. This is what Henry Cavill has to say about it: “That is up to (showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich). Lauren and I have discussed it at length. And time will tell if she’s willing to reveal that.”

6. Lauren S. Hissrich has already mapped out 7 seasons

As you may have heard, Season 2 of The Witcher has been announced! To mark the occasion I thought I’d share one of my favourite shots from my Season 1 personal collection. #Geralt #TheWitcher #Season2 #Netflix

Back in November, when the showrunner was asked about her plans, she revealed that she’s already mapped out for 7 seasons. “We don’t have a second season yet – God willing we will – but right now it’s just about, ‘How do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?’” she continued. “The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.”

Following that interview, she told Cinema Blend, “It’s funny, because I said in an interview that I could write 7 seasons. I also said I’m sure later that day I could write 20 seasons if given the opportunity. I could keep writing the show for a very long time. As long as people are interested in it and as long the source material is there to organically build from.”
