The Witcher has been openly touted as Netflix’s attempt at creating a Game of Thrones-style big-time fantasy series. Clearly they’re swinging for the fences with a decision to return the The Continent so soon.
Season one of The Witcher will premiere on December 20. Season two will shoot in London, starting early next year with a planned 2021 release.
