What is the witcher?
RELATED: Is The Witcher Season 2 Release Date Delayed?
Before it was a popular series on Netflix, The witcher was originally a series of popular books. It’s stuck in the fantasy genre, much like Game of Thrones. Following the success of the books, it also became a line of video games that also proved popular.
According to IMDB, it follows the exploits of a monster hunter named Geralt of Rivia. The TV show incorporates elements from the novels into the story it tells. The interesting thing about the show is that while Geralt is hunting monsters, the people he encounters sometimes turn out to be more dangerous and deadly than any magical beast.
Cavill was already a household name on the series after playing Superman on the big screen, but it’s safe to say that his appearance on the show only increased his star power. He drew rave reviews for his performance and the show was a critical and commercial success.
What was the first season of ‘The Witcher’ about?

Entertainment Weekly reported that during the series’ first season, Geralt is attempting to move across the continent with two fellow travelers accompanying him: a sorceress and a princess. It is Geralt’s duty (the cause of which is not known at first) to protect the princess, a young woman named Ciri.
The sorceress Yennefer is someone whom Geralt meets on his journey across the continent and who becomes entangled in his makeshift family. The first season follows the separate storylines of Ciri, Yennefer and Geralt before all three culminate in the season finale. The show follows the invasion of the Nilfgaard Empire into the peaceful Kingdom of Cintra. In the end, Geralt can defeat the Nilfgaardians.
While the first season had a happy ending, many fans were still wondering about the future of the series. So what’s next? The witcher? Will there be a second season and if so, when will it premiere?
What is the second season of ‘The Witcher’ about?
That shouldn’t come as a surprise The witcher returns for a second season. According to Invers preview of the coming season, it should start in 2021.
Production started in January but has been stopped due to COVID-19. There is no set date for a release as this will obviously be a bit delayed. Fall or winter 2021 is the most likely time frame for its release. The season will contain the same number of episodes as the first season: eight.
What is this season about? The details of the plot are easy at the moment as the show hasn’t even finished filming. But there are some tidbits that we know from interviews with a well-placed source: showrunner Lauren Hissrich. From a narrative point of view, season one was a bit ubiquitous as it told stories from overlapping timelines. Hissrich has said that season two could be more of a traditional, linear narrative, as the main characters’ stories are all coordinated.
Another interesting aspect to investigate in season two is the presence of sorcerers beyond Geralt. Hissrich said the show could introduce more witchers to viewers, which would certainly expand the universe a bit. In fact, two confirmed new characters named Coen and Lambert are Witcher so this is sure to happen.
