The second season of Netflix, The Witcher, will premiere this December, but we’ll need the Christmas viewing party if we want a third season to pass. Showrunner Lauren Hissrich told the TV Critics Association's TV Press Summer Tour that season 3 is not yet formally in the works.
“There has been no formal renewal,” Hissrich says. "In fact, right now I'm focusing on season 2. I mean, now we have this air date, which we're going to release on December 17. There's still a lot of work to be done in post-production. I'm going and back between Los Angeles and London, completing that, and this is where we are focused right now, because we need a great season 2 if we hope to have a season 3. "
Netflix is, of course, famous for canceling programs after a couple of seasons, even if they are very successful, as production costs tend to grow. The first Marvel series like Luke Cage, Jessia Jones and Daredevil lasted no more than two or three seasons. More prices like The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance only lasted one season. While Henry Cavill is clearly a big fan of the franchise, he remains one of Hollywood’s most popular stars in recent years, which may require a higher salary as time goes on.

The first season of The Witcher attracted 76 million viewers who watched at least two episodes, according to Netflix. For a time, The Witcher was Netflix's biggest exclusive series, but was eventually dethroned by the tasty Bridgerton drama of the Regency era. On point, Geralt has his own big shoes to fill.
Season 2 of The Witcher was one of the many Hollywood victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, with filming delays affecting production. Cavill was also injured while performing a trick which involves a 20-foot oscillating glove in the air. I guess a little fisstech and some meditation can't solve it.
The second season should keep things interesting, introducing more wizards like Geralt Vesemir’s mentor and teammates Lambert and Eskel. You can check it out everything we know about season 2 of The Witcher here before it falls on December 17th.
