Netflix: The showrunner of the series is not resting on her laurels and believes that they must have a good second season to get the renewal.The second season of The Witcher has not had it easy. The filming of the new episodes, which will once again star Henry Cavill in the role of Geralt de Rivia, has suffered a stoppage of filming on several occasions, all because of the coronavirus crisis. However, the content is already in a safe place and ready for its premiere on December 17. It is taken for granted that the fiction will be renewed for a third season, but what is officially known?
This question has been put to the own Lauren S. Hissrich, showrunner of The Witcher, from the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour. She has said the following: “There has been no formal renovation. In fact, right now my attention is on season 2. I mean, we already have the premiere date, we are going to release it on December 17th. There is still a lot of work to be done in post production, so I’m going back and forth from Los Angeles to London to finish it. This is what I’m focused on, because we need a great Season 2 if we hope to have a third. ”
