After announcing a 20th December release date for season one earlier this month, Netflix has now confirmed its upcoming live-action adaptation of The Witcher will receive a second season.

This announcement was made by the showrunner Lauren Hissrich, who took to Twitter yesterday to share the good news:

Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri will be back for more adventures... in Season Two.

The second season will reportedly be comprised of eight episodes and is targeting a 2021 release date.

It wouldn't be the first time Netflix has jumped the gun like this, with its Castlevania series being renewed for a third season before the second one had even been aired.

Keep in mind, that unlike Castlevania series which was based on the popular video games of the same name, The Witcher Netflix adaptation draws on Andrzej Sapkowski's best-selling fantasy novels, rather than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, or any of CD Projekt Red's previous games.
