The Witcher: Release Date for Season 2
The release date of the second season of the fantasy drama series The Witcher has not been officially announced yet.
Netflix confirmed that The Witcher has been renewed for the second season in November 2019 which was even before the series premiered their first season.
The first season of the Polish-American show was an eight-episode season much like the second season of the series. The production of the renewed season commenced in the early months of 2020 in the city of London and was intended to debut in 2021. However, due to the global pandemic, the plans were upended.
Furthermore, as most of the films and television shows productions which included the second season of The Witcher were postponed owing to the lockdown. No matter, the series soon resumed their shooting for the second season last year in August, in regards to following the health and safety protocols implemented as per the city instructions.
The Witcher’s star Henry Cavill recently might have teased the anxious fans that the second season is to drop this year. The season wrapped up its filming a few weeks ago which was confirmed by the series hair and makeup stylist, Jacqueline Rathore on her Instagram and was soon followed by Netflix who officially confirmed that the production of the season has finally been concluded.
Now if we go as per the schedule which was for the first season, the prep and the post-production of the second season may be covered in approximately seven months. So according to this theory, the second season of The Witcher will likely be released sometime during this year around October or November.
