Lauren S. Hissrich is the Witcher creator. She shares the new poster on Twitter for the second season of the series. It will premiere on Netflix this December.
The poster artwork The Witcher season 2 has now been revealed. The Netflix series was adapted from the fantasy novel series by Andrzej Sapkowski, which have also been adapted into a series of popular video games. The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt, a magically imbued monster hunter known as a Witcher, whose destiny is inextricably linked with Crown Princess Ciri. The show, which has already been renewed for a third season, also stars Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra.
Fans have been hotly anticipating the second season of The Witcher. The first season premiered in December 2019, but the second season had to halt production due to pandemic delays and star Kristofer Hivju testing positive for COVID-19. Production was resumed several months later but crew members were found to be positive for COVID-19, which further delayed the series. Cavill also sustained a serious leg injury while shooting, but the crew persevered and wrapped the second season in April. The series premiere date was set for December 17, 2021.
Netflix has released a new poster for the final season. Lauren S. Hissrich, the show’s creator, shared the poster via Twitter, writing: “Created to kill. Destined to protect. You know Geralt as the Continent’s best monster hunter — now it’s time to peel back those layers of witcher armor, and discover a new side of the White Wolf. Join us on December 17th.” The design is a rather basic character poster, showing Geralt in his armor, but eagle-eyed fans may be able to notice details in the costume and location that give hints toward what they can expect from The Witcher season 2. Check out her tweet below.

The Witcher season 2 will feature Ciri and Geralt training together at the witcher refuge Kaer Morhen. Also joining the cast is Kim Bodnia as Vesemir, a veteran witcher who is also Geralt’s father figure. Vesemir’s origin story was explored in the animated feature The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which was released on Netflix this August.
The Witcher Season 2 needs to do everything possible to attract its huge audience back to the series after such a long break. The storyline that sees the three main characters from the series come together will be appealing enough. The creator’s promise that the next season will explore the character of Witcher more is likely to attract the show’s fanfiction writers. They will also have access to another season’s worth raw material for gifs about Henry Cavill.
