The showrunner for The Witcher, Lauren Hissrich stated that for the second season, the series will add more depth towards the villains. So far, The Witcher tv series has been doing really well. It became a hit and garnered a lot of viewers. Besides this, it also became the second biggest show for the year 2019. Stranger Things held the first position.
The Witcher season 2 will premiere somewhere in 2021 or early 2022 The production and development started for it some time before the premiere of season 1. This clearly shows that Netflix is confident about the show and its future.
The Villains of The Witcher
During a watch party which was going on twitter, Lauren went ahead and talked about the details for the second season. She said that she is unable to wait to really dig deep into Cahir and Fringilla. They want to tell the viewers about who the characters are. Besides this, she wants to explain the relationship between them and Nilfgaard.
In the first season, Cahir is a knight. He is a part of the Nilfgaardian army. However, Fringilla is a Nilfgaardian sorceress. Eamon Farren plays Cahir while Mimi Ndiweni plays Fringilla. The two characters are work together to find Cirrila aka Ciri. They are the ones who caused the truckload of damage in season one. They killed a lot of nice characters.
Season 2 Production Status
I am sorry to say that the production for the second season has been stopped for now. This was due to the quarantine and all the ruckus caused by the virus. Another big reason for it was that Kristofer Hivju was diagnosed with the virus. He is supposed to be a character in the second season of The Witcher. He was also in Game of Thrones. The good news is that he has recovered and is doing well now.
Also, Kim Bodnia, from Killing Eve, will play Vesemir in the second season.
Since the production has been stopped, Netflix is yet to announce a release date for the second season. Of course, their planned date will be changed due to this. If there are a lot of problems, the date might see a huge change. It is possible that the second season will premiere in 2022.
Since, many series have postponed by a lot, it could mean the same thing for The Witcher. However, we will keep you updated for the series at TheNewsCave.
