Will you take a small part of it? Netflix, who created the event with The Witcher, is about to start shooting for Season 2. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich’s series will be back for a second series of episodes, and this is good news for fans of the universe. What is on Netflix announced the filming date on December 23rd. As for the first season, it is in Eastern Europe that the shooting will take place. Starting February 17 in Hungary Netflix, the team will gather to launch the production of this second season, which will include 8 episodes. London should also host casting for some interior scenes.
On the casting side, Netflix remains discreet and does not announce any other actor at the moment. Of course, Henry Cavill finds himself in the skin of the white wolf, while Yennefer will again be played by Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan will lend his features to Cree. We should also find Joey Batey in the shoes of our favorite Bard, Jaskier. Probably the character will come push the song.

What to expect from Season 2?
This season 2 will certainly be an opportunity for Netflix toexplore the sorcerer’s past. Briefly addressed in the flashbacks of the first season, the wizard’s training should be unveiled in this second episode breaks out. Geralt and Ciro, finally reunited, will go to Kaer Morhen, the fortress of sorcerers, to master the powers of the girl. This will certainly be an opportunity for Netflix to introduce a new character, Geralt’s Mentor, Vesemir. To play the character, several names are announced such as the Jedi SEO Master, Mark Hamill . In a Reddit post from Last year, Lauren Hissrich described his version of the character: “A wise, paternal and witty man.” Very soon, Luke Skywalker’s performer was mentioned by Internet users, before the actor himself said: “I do not know what it is or even what he is talking about, but I agree that it could and should be played by me.” Not sure, however, that Netflix can afford, the actor being one of the best-paid celebrities of 2019. Nevertheless, we would like to see him slide again into the skin of a paternal figure, a kind of medieval Jedi master.
As for when this second season will be unveiled, you will have to wait a little. If production lasts as long as in the first season, the series will only be availablein the spring of 2021 . So you will have time to read or re-read novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, whose series isadapted.
