Netflix’s fantasy show The Witcher will start shooting its second season this August 17, announced The Witcher’s official Twitter page through a poem.
The first season of The Witcher which stars Henry Cavill was a huge success when it landed on Netflix late last year, bringing together fans of the book series from which it was based; the popular video game franchise; and the fantasy genre in general.
Viewers were already excited for the second season, but the project had to take a pause when the pandemic hit. That is, until shooting finally resumes this August.
Besides season 2, showrunner Lauren Hissrich and writer Beau De Mayo also joined forces with Studio Mir (Legend of Korra and Voltron: Legendary Defender) for an anime spin-off film titled The Witcher: Nightmare of The Wolf. Its release date has yet to be revealed.
The series stars Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Jodhi May, Joey Batey, and more. You can stream The Witcher now on Netflix.
