2019 might be two years ago, but fans of “The Witcher” still rewatch it on loop. Due to the fantastical nature, “The Witcher” remains one of the most-watched and adored series. The show is based on the short stories collection called “The Last Wish” and “Sword of Destiny”. Fans were greeted with eight episodes in the first season and can expect the same for the second one. Ever since its release, fans have eagerly waited for the release of the next season.
The good news is, the second season has been announced even before the first season was released. The bad news is, due to COVID, production was postponed. As of now, the series is in the last stages of its filming. If all goes to plan, fans might be able to see the show in the latter half of 2021. Most recently, it was revealed that Henry Cavill finished a fighting sequence. Fans can thus expect a good action time in the new season.
