The Witcher season 2 is one of the most anticipated releases in the pipeline for Netflix and it’s not hard to understand why.
The series starring Henry Cavill debuted way back in December 2019 with an eight-episode season that quickly managed to capture the attention of fans. Much like fellow fantasy dramas Game of Thrones and Outlander, The Witcher managed to not only capture the attention of fans of the books on which the show is based but to an entirely new audience who quickly fell in love with the fantasy world the show is rooted in.
Like many shows, The Witcher season 2 was plagued by production delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic which prevented the series from debuting in 2020. Fortunately, Netflix was able to resume and complete production in early April which many fans hoped would allow the show to return sometime in 2021.
While there had been whispers, the good news is the wait is nearly over as Netflix has confirmed season 2 will be coming at some point this year!
When is The Witcher season 2 coming out?
Although an official release date for The Witcher season 2 has not yet been released by Netflix, it has been confirmed that the season will be debuting sometime in 2021. According to a shareholder letter published by Netflix on April 20, The Witcher was touted as one of a handful of high-profile shows and movies coming to Netflix in the second half of the year.
While no exact release date was revealed, it seems the earliest the season could arrive would be July 2021; however, we’re not anticipating season 2 will release that early — though it would be quite the welcome surprise!
The Witcher season 2 is currently expected to release sometime in the final quarter of 2021, with December 2021 standing out as the likely favorite. Season 1 was released on December 20 just before the Christmas holiday and many anticipate the second season will follow a similar release.
Should Netflix indeed go with a similar release plan for season 2, we could see The Witcher season 2 drop on Christmas Eve.
We’ll keep you posted as any additional information becomes available. In the meantime, fans can get excited in knowing season 2 will be coming sometime in 2021!Next: 50 best Netflix shows to watch right now
