Some probably didn't think the day would ever come, but The Witcher has officially confirmed it's premiere date for season 2 for December 17th. Due to the constant production halts from the COVID-19 pandemic, that will put the second season almost exactly two years from the first season's premiere (December 20th, 2019).
It will pick up right where the cliffhanger of season one left off where Geralt of Rivia finally united with Princess Cirilla whose destiny is linked with his. Together, they travel to his childhood home of Kaer Morhen (the sanctuary of the Witchers Guild) where Geralt must protect her from both the battle of supremacy raging on the Continent among species and Cirilla's growing power that she possesses. Meanwhile, Yennifer (who Geralt believes to be dead) will find herself in the clutches of the antagonistic country Nilfgaard following the battle with them on Sodden Hill.
Along with this announcement, the official teaser trailer has been released that shows hints of what will come as destiny guides these characters into perilous adventure. Check it out below:
