The debut of Netflix’s The Witcher is still over a month away, but the streaming giant has already announced the series will be renewed for a second season.
The series, based on the writings of Andrzej Sapkowski, stars Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) of Geralt of Rivia, the fabled Witcher, a monster hunter tasked with defending his world, the Continent, from demonic entities who have invaded from another dimension.
“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri,” Netflix’s Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said in a statement about the announcement.
Season one of The Witcher is set to premiere on December 20, 2019 and production on the new series will most likely begin in early 2020 according to Entertainment Weekly.
Freya Allen (The War of the Worlds), Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders), Adam Levy (Rome), and Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks) will star in the series alongside Cavill.
The Witcher has been adapted multiple times including a successful series of video games as well as a previous film and television series in Poland.
All eyes will be on the series when it debuts on December 20, 2019.
