Though Netflix has been on a cull of shows lately, striking down longer-running series and limiting others to short runs, it is sending a vote of confidence to Henry Cavill-starring fantasy series The Witcher, with an order for a second season before the first has hit the streaming service.

Adapted by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich from the novels of Andrzej Sapkowski (which are also the basis for the video game series), the story finds Cavill as yellow-eyed monster bounty hunter Geralt Of Rivia, caught up in a saga of swords, sorcery, and scary creatures. His destiny becomes intertwined with that of others in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified. MyAnna Buring, Freya Allen and Anya Chalotra also star.

“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri,” Hissrich says in a statement. Season 1 will launch on Netflix on 20 December. Season 2 is scheduled to shoot in London next year for a 2021 debut. You can see the trailer below.
