‘The Witcher’ Renewed For Season 2 By Netflix Ahead Of Debut

The Witcher has yet to premiere, but we're already being primed for more.

Henry Cavill is announced to be coming to the Argentina Comic Con, and ahead of its debut on November 20, Netlix announces The Witcher gets renewed for a Season 2. The eight-episode first season will launch on Netflix on December 20. Geralt hunts down monsters who kill mythical beasts for money. The series has also been adapted into a popular video game franchise as well as comic books and tabletop games.

Based on the best-selling novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher follows the risky creature-slaying adventures of Geralt (played in the Netflix adaptation by Man of Steel's Henry Cavill) on the fictional "Continent".

From the official Netflix synopsis: Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. But when destiny hurtles Geralt toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a risky secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together. To no-one's surprise, Cavill will return as Geralt, while Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan along have been confirmed as returning as with as Yennefer and Ciri, respectively. Among the other members of the series' large ensemble cast are Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Emma Appleton. This means, in addition to being a vote of confidence in the new show, that Schmidt Hissrich's backlog of season plans just got a little lighter. The first season of the electrifying fantasy show has promised viewers a number of action set pieces and elaborate politically charged drama.

"I've [mapped out stories] for seven seasons", Hissrich confirms to SFX.
