The first-ever Netflix WitcherCon is in full swing and some exciting news about The Witcher has come out of it so far – a brand new poster, a teaser trailer *and* a premiere date for season two.
Earlier this year, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos confirmed in a company investor video that we can expect to see season two of The Witcher “in Q4”, and that has now been confirmed with a release date of December 17, 2021.
Our first-look at the new season also came in the form of a two-minute teaser trailer, available to watch above, which focuses on Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) and Princess Cirilla of Cintra’s (Freya Allan) journey following the end of season one.
As well as that date for fans to mark in their diaries, audiences have also been treated to some new series artwork featuring Geralt of Rivia and Princess Ciri too.
Netflix’s official plot synopsis for season two is as follows: “Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen.
“While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
WitcherCon – an event for fans of the games, comics, TV series and anime film Nightmare of the Wolf – is streaming live on Twitch and YouTube.
Look out for more exclusive behind-the-scenes videos, panels and interviews from across The Witcher franchise.
The Witcher season 1 is now streaming worldwide on Netflix. Season 2 will premiere on December 17, 2021.
