It’s been a long time in the making and season 1 of Netflix’s “The Witcher” series based on the best-selling fantasy series isn’t even out yet, BUT it has already been renewed for a 2nd season. Season 1 will arrive on December 20th with season 2 scheduled for 2021. The tweet is also a tongue-in-cheek reference to many fans of the computer game complaining that Geralt only has one sword but in the game he has two. In the books, which the series is based on, he carries his second sword on his horse, Roach. So not only are they letting us know the release date, they are also confirming that Geralt will, indeed, have his second sword in the Netflix series.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, “The Witcher” is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
