Henry Cavill has already become the fan favorite of everyone after his first look was revealed in The Witcher TV series on Netflix. The Superman actor will now play the role of Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter who protects everyone from impending terror and mysteries. Netflix has released two trailers for The Witcher and both have gotten amazing responses and viewers have praised it and are loving Cavill as Geralt.
Sounds like @Netflix is very happy with #TheWitcher and we could see multiple seasons greenlit before season one airs or shortly after. Meaning Cavill’s schedule could be full for a while and more evidence Superman is behind him pic.twitter.com/DSnFjhAjrF

The Witcher season 1 release date is set as December 2020 and there are reports that season 2 is already in works. Since Henry Cavill is not working as Superman due to the Warner Bros and DC issue, his schedule is free for a few months and the makers have decided to shoot for The Witcher Season 2 in the meantime.

While his role as Superman was wasted due to bad writing and direction in Batman V Superman and Justice League, writers for The Witcher are not doing that and he already looks perfect as the Geralt of Rivia. Henry Cavill has a free schedule in December 2019 and January 2020 which gives the showrunners enough time to start shooting for The Witcher season 2.
The Witcher Season 2 Release Date
Even the writers of The Witcher Netflix series, Declan de Barra shared a photo on Instagram which hinted that work has begun for the next season of the show. There have been also rumors saying that post-production of the Witcher Season 2 has already started and very soon they will start the actual shoot with lead actors.
I auditioned for roles in The Witcher series. Geralt & Jaskier. Those roles went to men I find irritatingly talented. Now I've seen the trailer I have to say I am BEYOND excited. I truly believe @LHissrich & her team will give us creative excellence. Fingers crossed for season 2!
