OFFICIAL: Season 2 of The Witcher starts shooting "early next year" with seven seasons planned
Netflix have confirmed that Geralt will return very soon in The Witcher Season 2.
If you haven't seen The Witcher, consider this to be your spoiler alert warning.
At what point did you become a fan of Netflix's new fantasy epic?
Was it when Geralt unleashed chaos in Blaviken by slaughtering all of Renfri's men in a sword fight for the ages? Perhaps Jaskier's song in the second episode resonated the strongest with you - no word of a lie, we still can't get that 'Toss A Coin To You Witcher' song out of our head.
Maybe you're a massive of Yennefer unleashing her chaos as the mage burned armies to a crisp and created portals to other realms. Whatever your reason, there's no denying that the moments when the three storylines do meet - Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri's - the show really takes off.
We'll be honest, the first series wasn't a 10/10, but it has massive potential and it got better as it went on.
Even before Season 1 premiered, we knew that The Witcher Season 2 was on the way and Netflix have confirmed that the new episodes will start filming "early next year".
The news gets better for Witcher fans as in an interview with SFX magazine, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said that she's already mapped out seven seasons of the fantasy epic.
“Oh hell, yeah!" she said, after being asked about her plans. "Second season? I’ve done it for seven seasons!"
At the end of season one, Ciri was finally able to find Geralt, who she had been told was her destiny but who had fled the castle walls after being jailed by Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May) for fear he’d invoke the Law of Surprise and take her granddaughter away from her.

We've a feeling that Ciri's curiosities will definitely be answered in Season 2 of The Witcher on Netflix.
us, normally: we're glad you liked [insert new show], but it literally came out 3 days ago so we don't have any information about s2 just yet
us, today: we're glad you liked The Witcher, and thankfully we confirmed s2 last month – it'll go into production early next year ⚔️
