What time does The Witcher Season 2 come out on Netflix? Time and date
The two-year-long wait for fans of the fantasy series The Witcher is finally over. All eight episodes of the show will be dropping soon on Netflix.
One of the most popular Netflix series, The Witcher, will return on Friday 17 December, two years after it debuted on the streaming platform. The covid-19 pandemic and a leg injury suffered by the show’s star Henry Cavill delayed the release of the second instalment of the monster hunting series.
Netflix will drop all eight episodes of Season 2 at the witching hour on the West Coast giving fans the weekend to binge watch if they choose. The second season will pick up where the Season 1 left off continuing the story based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's short stories and novels.
Season 2 of The Witcher will be more linear
According to showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, season 2 will follow a more linear timeline than the first season which jumped around in time causing some confusion for viewers. The first two books in the Witcher saga were the basis for Season 1, and from the title of Episode 1 in Season 2 it appears viewers will be given some of the back story before moving forward. Titles for seven of the eight episodes were made public at WitchCon in July, but the finale is veiled in secrecy.
