When Will The Witcher Season 2 Be Released On Netflix?

So, many of us loved The Witcher Season 1 on Netflix, but it’s now time to set our sights to Season 2. When will The Witcher Season 2’s release date be on Netflix?

That’s actually a really tough question to answer, especially during these times of COVID-19.

However, one of Netflix’s production that has been going along pretty smoothly even with the pandemic has been The Witcher Season 2.

It was one of the last shows to stop production due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and it was one of the first to go back into production.

One of the reasons behind this is because Netflix did everything within its power to ensure that it was a safe set for the cast and crew.

They were constantly cleaning the set and ensuring that everyone wore a mask.

Production on the second season of The Witcher is still going on now, and it seems as though it’s a happy set.

One of the big questions about the show is when it’ll be released on Netflix.

The Witcher Season 1 landed at the very end of 2019, before this whole COVID-19 mess.

Remember the days before COVID was a real thing? Yeah, I know. It feels like a lifetime ago.

Anyway, since the production of The Witcher Season 2 was only shut down for a very brief period, Season 2 might still hit its original release date.

The thing is, there’s no real way of us knowing when that would have been because Netflix doesn’t share that sort of information.

That said, if you were to think logically about this and think about when Netflix would like to release the show, things start to become a bit clearer.

The show is still being shot, which means that it won’t be released in December 2020.

That means we’re looking at a 2021 release (like everything else in the entertainment world at the moment).

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the show come out at the beginning of the year.

My best guess would be March or April 2021.

That would be a pretty good release date for The Witcher Season 2 because it wouldn’t have too much competition.

The only thing, at the moment, which is now scheduled for April 2021 is No Time To Die.

And there’s also the fact that The Witcher Season 1 was released at almost the same time as Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise Of Skywalker.

Therefore, it seems as though Netflix doesn’t really care too much about released their big tentpole shows at the same time as big blockbusters.

So, it would seem as though we’re looking at a March or April 2021 release date for The Witcher Season 2.

Now, as far as what’s going to happen in Season 2, that’s another story.

The Witcher is mainly based on the books, but they also use the video games for inspiration.

This means that trying to figure out what will happen in The Witcher Season 2 is pretty darn complicated.

That said, the show’s creator, Lauren S. Hissrich, did say that Season 2 will be a lot less confusion that Season 1 was.

One of the huge complaints many other viewers had about the first season was that it was incredibly difficult to follow the show’s plot.

This was because it was told in a non-linear way.

The show kept on going back and forth in time.

It made it really tricky to follow and work out when things took place.

This won’t be the case in Season 2.

They’re doing away with the overly and unnecessarily complex storytelling device in favour for something simpler.

When I heard that they were making things much easier to follow for viewers, I thought that this would make the show better.

I really hope I’m right on that one.

One thing The Witcher Season 1 got very right, on the other hand, was casting Henry Cavill as its lead.

Cavill plays Geralt of Rivia in the show, and he is perfect.

Incidentally, Netflix just released their first look images of Henry Cavill as Geralt in Season 2.

He looks even more formidable and pissed off in Season 2.

I didn’t even think that would have been possible.

Cavill is made to play Geralt, and I cannot wait to see what he does in Season 2.

I hope, if anything, he gets even more screentime than he did in the first season.

He also needs a few more sword fights and battles with monsters.

Those moments were the highlights of The Witcher Season 1, and it could have done with more of them.

Anyway, what do you make of this feature?

    It is like you read my mind, I was thinking the same thing, Cavill plays geralt. perfectly, like he is made for the role, after reading the books, and spending, 100 hours beating and rebeating witcher 3, I couldn’t even picture somebody else playing Geralt. No offense to his rendition of Super Man, but like you said, it was like he was born to play Geralt.

Have your say...
