O’ Valley of Plenty, The Witcher season 2 is coming to Netflix on December 17, 2021.
At the first-ever WitcherCon, fans were given the long-awaited news that the second series of the hit show was arriving just before Christmas.
An official trailer was released alongside the announcement during A Spotlight Conversation with Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia in the fantasy series.
The global virtual convention allowed fans to immerse themselves in the Witcher world and become fully acquainted with the making of the games, live-action series and the upcoming anime film.
There were also a series of panels featuring cast members Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Mimi M. Khayisa, Paul Bullion and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
As well as the announcement of the highly-anticipated new series, fans were also graced with the news that ‘The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf’ – the eagerly awaited anime film – will arrive on Netflix on August 23.
The film tells the story of a young witcher called Vesimer who breaks free from a life of poverty to slay monsters for cash.
The Witcher is based on the books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and follows the monster-hunter for hire Geralt of Rivia as he navigates a wicked world full of treacherous foes and dangerous beasts.
But when fate bands him together with a young princess – played by Freya Allan – fleeing a war-torn kingdom and the most powerful sorceress in the land – played by Anya Chalotra – the three must learn quickly how to journey through the explosive Continent.
Season 2 of the celebrated show will see Geralt protecting Ciri (Allan) from her own powers at his childhood home.
As well as the three favourites making their return, the series is full of new faces including Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton), Cassie Clare (Brave New World), Liz Carr (Silent Witness), Graham McTavish (Outlander), Kevin Doyle (Downton Abbey), Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Chris Fulton (Bridgerton).
In October last year, Netflix teased fans with Geralt (Cavill), Yennifer (Chalotra) and Ciri’s (Allan) new looks.
Filming was delayed because of Covid but came to an end in April.
