Netflix made the announcement on Twitter, along with an image of two swords - suggesting that the silver blade, which has been mostly MIA in pre-release images of the show, will play a big role in season two.
There's still another month to go before Netflix's Witcher series goes live, but it seems the streaming provider is confident about the show's success. "I could not be more proud of what the wonderful cast and crew of The Witcher have accomplished, and can't wait for the world to dig in and enjoy these stories with us", showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich tweeted. Geralt hunts down monsters who kill mythical beasts for money.
"Good news: We've just confirmed that season two will go into production in the United Kingdom early next year!" The series has also been adapted into a popular video game franchise as well as comic books and tabletop games.
During a recent interview, Hissrich revealed that she has the fantasy series mapped out through seven seasons. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a unsafe secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together. "Right now, it's just about, 'how do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?'" she reportedly teased. Among the other members of the series' large ensemble cast are Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Emma Appleton.
The Witcher season 1 will hit Netflix on Friday, December 20.
