After multiple delays and tons of setbacks, Netflix’s The Witcher will finally begin its second season this year. During WitcherCon today, the streaming juggernaut revealed that The Witcher – Season 2 will debut on December 17, 2021. While not having a specific episode count, this second season will focus more on Geralt (Henry Cavill) and Ciri (Freya Allen) as they continue their training to become even stronger Witchers.
In lieu of a new trailer, Netflix released two production stills that show off Jaskier (Joey Batey) rocking out in a pub with a second focusing on Ciri and her teacher, Lambert (Paul Bullion). It seems fine enough from what we can tell. I just hope that this second season corrects most of the pacing issues that the first had.
I wasn’t necessarily hot on the first season, even if most of the internet was in love, but I do have some hope that Netflix can turn things around. A lot of shows don’t really hit their stride in the first season, so it would be unfair to completely write off The Witcher just because the first season was so exposition-heavy. Even so, it would be great to focus more on Geralt’s struggles instead of everyone else.
