The Witcher season 1 shattered all the records as soon as Netflix dropped the first season and it became the most-watched first season of television for Netflix. As per the data, over 76 million watched the first season of The Witcher that was released on December 20, 2019. Fans across the globe are eagerly waiting for the second season of the American fantasy drama series produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
Although, Netflix has confirmed the production of The Witcher season 2, but it will not happen anytime soon. Also, production has stopped amid the coronavirus outbreak that has struck the world badly and has forced over 60 percent population to live under lockdown and maintain social distancing in order to curb the infection growth rate.
However, fans of Witcher are very curious to know even the small updates on the upcoming season and they go crazy by even slightest of the hints. A photo of the sets of Witcher 2 shared by Lauren received over three thousand likes on twitter.

The Witcher 2 Story
Producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich once revealed, “what’s great about season two, I can tell you, is that, in what we’ve written, the story becomes much more focused. There’s a stronger drive in the story, because all of the relationships that we’ve been setting up in season one, actually start to come into fruition in season two.”
Hissrich added: “Characters start meeting and interacting more. That goes well sometimes. It doesn’t go well sometimes. But it’s kind of like, all of those building blocks that we set up for the world, finally start to come together into something a little more concrete.”
