Here's what you need to know about The Witcher Season 2's Netflix release date, plus trailers, news, and more.


The Witcher took the world by storm when it premiered on Netflix, casting Henry Cavill as the main character. It was a hit—and deservedly so—though it has left many clambering to find out when The Witcher Season 2 release date is.

Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner for The Witcher on Netflix had previously shared that the second season would be coming in 2021 during an AMA on Reddit.

“We don’t yet have a target launch date for Season 2, past 2021,” Hissrich said in the AMA. This has led many to believe that the show will probably come out in the latter half of the year.

According to TechRadar, a special effects company called Platige Image is set to complete work on the eight episodes for season 2 by July 2021. The company’s work on season 1 was originally due in November 2019, with the show launching worldwide in December. This lines up with the second season once again launching in December.

The Witcher 2 trailers, photos, and more

A brief teaser trailer for The Witcher Season 2 was revealed during Netflix Geeked Week back in June.

We got our first look at Season 2 with a series of tweets including photos of Geralt, Ciri, and Yenefer. Check them out.

In late December, Netflix also shared a short page from the show's script, and some new images from Season 2.

Photos shared to the r/NetflixWitcher Twitter account in March also gave us a glimpse of what many speculate is to be the Wild Hunt.
