The Witcher Season 2: Release date, trailers and more

The first season of Netflix's The Witcher was a huge hit for the streaming service, filling a gap in the market left vacant by the underwhelming end of Game of Thrones.

Its adult storylines and whirling action have attracted plenty of new fans, alongside the legions already well on board thanks to the successful CD Projekt Red games. Now a second season is coming - so, read on to find out all the key details.

The Witcher Season 2 release date

Netflix announced this summer that The Witcher's second season will debut on its streaming platform shortly before Christmas, and it also released the first trailer for the new season, which you can see above.

The show is set to return 17 December 2021. Netflix announced the news during an inaugural WitcherCon event. It also provided the first full-length look at the upcoming season, which you can watch above.

From what we can tell, the second season picks up where the first season ended, with Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) meeting up with exiled Princess Cirilla. The duo goes to Kaer Morhen - the mountain fortress where Geralt trained - so that Ciri can become a witcher, too. It doesn't look easy, to say the least.

Now, as part of its Tudum event, a new annual look at what Netflix has planned, we've got a longer trailer to chew on, as well.

The Witcher Season 2: Story

For those who've read the books or played certain parts of the games, the story is a known quantity, but we don't know how closely Netflix is going to stick to the established canon. Still, it looks like this season will offer more of the same, as the empire in Nilfgaard seeks to get Ciri back at any cost.

In addition to the trailers and date, Netflix teased a behind-the-scenes featurette with Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan (who play Yennefer and Ciri, respectively), as well as Jaskier's new maroon wardrobe, and vague episode titles for season two. Cavill even said the next season will have a new song from Jaskier.

So, you can expect to see more of your favourite characters from the first season.

The Witcher Season 3 confirmed

Another welcome announcement from the Tudum live stream was that Netflix is continuing to bank on The Witcher's success - it's already greenlit a third season of the show. This means we don't have to worry (yet) about the risk of cancellation ending any storylines prematurely.

On top of that, there's a live-action prequel series coming called The Witcher: Blood Origin, and Netflix also made the surprise announcement that it's working on an animated show in the Witcher universe that'll be suitable for families and kids.

If that sounds a little bit of an odd fit, it could come as a relief to any parents getting tired of telling their kids they can't watch the show itself.
