The fantasy series “The Witcher” is coming back with its second season. The series sprung up in the wake of Games of Thrones and was a huge hit on the streaming platform i.e. Netflix.
The great news is that this second season and a brand new prequel both are in the works. That means all the fans out there are going to get a big treat. The show is based upon the Witcher novels by author Andrzej Sapkowski, which also inspired a hugely popular series of video games.
The Witcher Season 2: Release date?
The series became one of the most popular Netflix original series of 2019 in the United Kingdom. Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has confirmed that the series is going to be out soon and the story will be more linear moving forward.
Due to the ongoing corona virus pandemic, the production of season two has faced many difficulties. It was temporarily halted but fortunately, the filming resumed. Hopefully, any delay to the expected winter release date won’t be too long.
For now, there is no specific release date of the second season. We only know that it will be released somewhere in 2021.

The Witcher Season 2: Plotline?
The series follows a fantasy world where there is magic, elves, and monsters. And, the Witchers were created with superhuman ability to fight away these monsters present in the plot. Though, the characters too were a disappointment for the viewers, as they were expecting something else and they got something else.
