The Witcher Season 2: Here’s everything you need to know about the second season of Netflix’s new and popular fantasy drama.
Turning a novel into a series is quite a trend these days so that those who don’t read books can enjoy through visual art. Similarly, Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ is based on a series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. Not only books, but the series is also an adaption of a video game developed by CD Projekt Red and published by Atari on Microsoft Windows and CD Projekt on OS X. If you are still not over this series, you can also try the other two options to be fully satisfied.
However, The Witcher Season 2 is one of the most anticipated web shows. Season 1 was premiered in December 2019 and since then fans are desperately waiting for another season. The good news is that it Netflix has already renewed the series for Season 2. To know about its release date, cast and plot, read the full article on The Witcher Season 2.
The Witcher Season 2: Expected Plot
Season 1 was based on ‘The Last Wish’ and ‘Sword of Destiny’ which are the first two collections of short stories both preceding the main ‘The Witcher Saga’. It is expected that the second season will be based on the first official book in The Witcher Saga, ‘Blood of Elves’.
“It’s more streamlined because all the three storylines are now in the same timeline so, I think it makes it a little more straightforward, but in a very good sense. I think it will be a very strong season. We also learned so much on the first one about the world, the characters and about what story we wanted to tell” said Bagiński about the second season.
Schmidt Hissrich tweeted saying “she can’t wait to dig deeper into Cahir and Fringilla in S2…who they are, why Nilfgaard is important to them, and where they’ll go from here…. It’s one of my favourite parts of the new season”.
The Witcher Season 2: Production Update
The filming was officially started on February 2020 but is currently on halt due to the ongoing pandemic. The filming stopped in March and is not expected to resume before August.
The Witcher is all about graphics and has pretty amusing scenery. The Redanian Intelligence: The Witcher tweeted in January 2020 that Netflix built an entire town for The Witcher at Arborfield Studios, UK. Other than the UK, it is said that the filming will take place in many other beautiful countries such as Scotland, Hungary and Budapest. However, the filming could take place in other countries as well depending upon the plot.
