The Witcher on Netflix has been renewed for a second season


On Wednesday morning, Netflix made a decision to go ahead and green-light a second season for the new series that stars Henry Cavill as monster-hunter Geralt of Rivia, ahead of the show's debut on Netflix a little more than a month from now (on December 20).

Superman veteran Henry Cavill will play Geralt, a witcher who has trained almost his entire life to hone his powers and hunt monsters.

The series stars Cavill as the platinum-haired protagonist, Geralt of Rivia.

The leader of a protest movement, Luis Fernando Camacho, said Morales "has fractured the constitutional order and must resign". Yuri Calderón, instructed protesting officers to get back on the street and prevent attacks by thugs loyal to the president.

However, as viewers gear up for the first season of the show, the second has just been commissioned by Netflix. Geralt hunts down monsters who kill mythical beasts for money.

"Good news: We've just confirmed that season two will go into production in the United Kingdom early next year!" But when destiny hurtles Geralt toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a risky secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together. Anya Chalotra also plays a sorceress named Yennefer and Freya Allan plays the mysterious Ciri. Per Escapist magazine, Hissrich revealed to SFX Magazine that she has the series mapped out for seven seasons. The exciting news, confirmed by showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich on Twitter, comes ahead of the show's Season 1 premiere late next month. At the very least, when speaking with SFX Magazine, Hissrich teased one thing The Witcher will have in common with the HBO mega-hit series in season one: not everyone is going to make it out alive.

As revealed in the latest trailer, which arrived at the tail-end of October, The Witcher will premiere season 1 on December 20.
