With the second season of The Witcher right around the corner, we all want to know how much longer the stories about the White Wolf can be told. And as both showrunner and star have stated, it seems like a lot. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who is in charge of taking Sapkowski’s book series to life for Netflix, said that she has a plan for seven seasons for the TV show. An ambitious, yet achievable goal, taking into account the amount of material to be used as a source can lead to even more content than just seven seasons.
What Did Henry Cavill Say?
On the other hand, when Henry Cavill was asked about reprising his role as Geralt of Rivia for five more seasons he responded enthusiastically. He thinks that there are enough stories to be told to guarantee more years playing the same character. We remember that when the cast was announced, many people weren’t sure about the most recent Superman actor portraying the character. We can say that Cavill proved those doubters wrong.
How Good Is the Series?
Despite some valid criticism on its plot and structure, the first season was quick to gather a large fanbase of people that had come from both the original books and from the popular video game series by the developer CD Projekt Red. There seems to be a feud between book fans and game fans on the accuracy of each of the mediums. The rest of us can simply enjoy it.
What Else Is There?
This year, Netflix released the animated movie “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf”. A 2D animation, with an oriental style, which serves as a prequel to the famous series. In this story, we follow Vesemir, Geralt’s mentor, and learn why people feel such hatred for these monster hunters. It is worth a watch just if you love animation.
When Is Season 2 Releasing?
The full second season of The Witcher is set to release on December 17 on Netflix, starring Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, and Joey Batey. We can’t wait to see what new places and characters we will visit in the second season, and how the various cliffhangers from the first one are resolved in the following story. We bet the second season will be even more action-heavy than the first.
