It was previously reported that the second season of Netflix's The Witcher was already in development, despite the fact that the first season hadn't even aired. With such confidence from everyone involved that the upcoming series will prove to be a hit, showrunner Lauren Schimdt Hissrich and her team are clearly eager to bring more of Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy world to life.
Season 2 of The Witcher will apparently enter the pre-production stage some time in the coming weeks, as indicated by a now-deleted tweet from a freelance sculptor and prop-maker based in Maidenhead, England. "Fingers crossed if all goes ahead for sure, but if so, I shall be joining the Witcher gang in prop making at the end of November," they tweeted.
This seems to support rumors that production for Season 2 will primarily take place within the UK, likely at Netflix's production hub at Shepperton Studios. It should be noted that no formal announcements have been made regarding progress or location of the second season.
Unsurprisingly, given that the show has yet to air, there are currently no available details about the second season and its plot. Where Season 1 evidently adapts events from The Last Wish to Blood of Elves of Sapkowski's novel series, Season 2 will presumably adapt Time of Contempt onwards. Trying to determine those details will be increasingly difficult. Hissrich recently stated that she has enough story to fill seven seasons, meaning some stories, characters and events from the novels will likely be expanded or compressed.
The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, Freya Allan as Ciri and Joey Batey as Jaskier. The series will be available to stream on Netflix starting December 20.
