The Witcher Season 1 has been one of Netflix’s biggest ever hits and they didn’t spend too long before getting Season 2 into production.
The new Netflix series, which is based on a series of books of the same name, ended up being one of 2019’s most-streamed shows despite having only been released ten days before the end of the year.
The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia and the show’s two other main characters are Yennefer (played by Anya Chalotra) and Ciri (Freya Allan).
They spent most of the first season in differing timelines and places, yet The Witcher’s showrunner and creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has revealed that Season 2 will see all three characters be in the same timeline.
She revealed this during an interview with Vulture when the aked her she’ll be abandoning the multiple storylines for The Witcher Season 2.
The Witcher Season 2 might be a little less complicated
All three characters [Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer] are on the same timeline now. That’s where we ended season one. That’s absolutely where we will pick up in Season 2.
The stories will be told in a much more linear fashion. They won’t all be one story.
It’s not like all three are together and happy all the time. But, I do want to employ some different ways to look at time series-wide.
I think that there is a lot that we couldn’t fit into Season 1. There are different short stories that I would love to highlight and focus on. We may end up doing those in the future, via flashback, for instance.
But no, we won’t have things happening across 100 years at the same time anymore.
So, hopefully, this means that The Witcher Season 2 will make a little bit more sense than the first season did.
What do you make of this? Are you looking forward to The Witcher Season 2?
