Before the first season of the Netflix series The Witcher started, a second season was ordered. The reasons for this are rather pragmatic.
The reviews of the Netflix series The Witcher are on Metacritic and Rotten tomatoes rather mixed at the moment. But Netflix will continue with the second season, because it was ordered before the series started.
A second season is coming
It happens from time to time that a second season of a series is ordered before the first one even starts, but this is not common practice. Usually, a broadcaster or streaming service waits for ratings and ratings for the first season. This was not the case with The Witcher.
One reason for this is that the second season has to be rotated as early as possible because the schedules of all those involved and the availability of the locations must be taken into account. In addition, the post-production of the series takes a long time. There is also a lot of material that can be used for the second season. Netflix has a lot of trust in the team to make something good out of this material.
In general, however, it was a dip in the cold water so that the second season can be produced as early as possible.
