The fantasy drama that is The Witcher had millions of viewers following the adventures of Geralt of Rivia and Yennefer. And even though only 8 official episodes aired in December 2019, the show is still considered to be one of the most iconic TV shows to ever air.

That being said, another season is said to be released later this year, and it has people sitting on the edge of their seats, itching to know more news about the release. If you’re curious about The Witcher season 2 & returns 2021 you need to keep your eyes peeled for, by all means, read on.

The Witcher

We’ll do our best not to reveal any spoilers, as The Witcher is one of those shows you must check out if you have the chance. From the official production to the acting (looking at you, Henry Cavill), there’s everything to look forward to in this release.

The first episode gives us the main characters – Geralt of Rivia, sorceress in training Yennefer, and Ciri, a princess who’s bound to Geralt by fate. It serves as an introduction to show who each of the main characters is, and why they’re important to the plot. The three of them, especially Yennefer, have the goal of surviving in a world where people tend to be scarier than any monster you can come across.

Geralt of Rivia is a monster hunter on the rise, known as a witcher. He has a bit of a problem when it comes to maintaining his humanity once he starts figuring out that the world is ruled by corrupt mages, queens, and kings, and he’s going to need to deal with all of them, not just the monsters. Yennefer is a mage in training who comes from absolutely nothing but has a large appetite. Princess Cirilla, or Ciri, is a young girl who seemingly has great mysterious powers within.

Even though only a single official season has aired so far, both the critical reception and the fans’ feedback have been reassuringly positive. Critics praised Cavill’s skills and charisma, and many consider it to be the highlight of the show. Even Andrzej Sapkowski, who is the original author of The Witcher series of books, claims that Cavill gave a face to Geralt in a similar way Viggo Mortensen gave his to Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings. And this speaks volumes about how happy he is.

Now, if you watched season one (and if you haven’t yet, please free up an eve, and do so), it might be interesting news to know that the production budget for filming the entire season was around $80 million. And thanks to its success, it is expected that the production budget for The Witcher season 2 is also going to be more or less the same, with an estimated $10 million for filming per episode. This is far from Netflix’s most expensive shows, but it’s still a massive budget to work with, and given the quality of season one, we have high expectations for the filming of season 2.

Oh, and if you’re impatient and can’t wait for it to drop, you should probably give the video game, The Witcher 3 The Wild Hunt, a chance. It follows the same plot from the books, and according to many, is one of the best open-world games, with an extensive story and plenty of side quests to take care of. The game is far from big news, but it’s still worth it even today.

That being said, The Witcher is far from the only show that’s filming for a return in 2021. Here is more news that you might (and should) be looking forward to.

South Park

Yes, over 20 seasons of this iconic animated comedy are out at this point, but we’ve got three more coming in 2021 – and fans love it. If you’ve seen everything so far, you’re in for a treat with everything that’s coming in those three seasons. And if you have yet to watch them, by all means, start as soon as possible – you’re missing out.

A thing to keep in mind is that South Park is everything but a children’s animated show. In fact, there’s a bit of speculation that the creators’ goal was to offend as many people and groups as possible while showing off the adventures of Kenny, Cartman, Kyle, and Stan. Not only do some of the episodes take on characters like Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, but they also don’t shy away from discussing politicians and celebrities from around the world. And don’t get us started on how many times Kenny gets killed – but we aren’t going to spoil any more, wait for the release and see for yourself.

The Mandalorian

An American TV show that’s located in the Star Wars universe five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, The Mandalorian received a lot of praise for the first two seasons.  Fans look forward to season 3, coming in 2021.

The Mandalorian revolves around Din Djarin, a Mandalorian bounty hunter who instead of retrieving the child he’s been tasked with retrieving, goes on the run to protect it. The reason is that the remnant Imperial forces want to use the child’s connection to the Force, and Din Djarin aims to stop them.

According to Giancarlo Esposito, who stars as the antagonist, Moff Gideon, seasons one and two merely lay the groundwork for everything that’s going to come in seasons three and four. We think it’s safe to assume he knows something we don’t, so we don’t mind taking his word for it.


If you’re a fan of animated TV series, Archer should be right up your alley. Make no mistake, while animated, Archer isn’t exactly a show for children, with adult humor and scenes that aren’t meant for kids. With eleven seasons released, season 12 is right around the corner.

The plot of Archer revolves around Sterling Archer, and seven other secret agents who are more or less dysfunctional and all part of the International Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a…ISIS. Sterling is the show’s protagonist, and he’s a womanizing, narcissistic character that you’re going to love.

The show has won its fair share of awards, and it’s easy to see why – each episode is an experience in and of itself, and they tie together very well for a show you’ll love to binge-watch. But don’t take our word for it – watch the first eleven seasons and then continue with number twelve once it’s out!

The Blacklist

A show that arguably has more plot twists than any Spanish telenovela, season 8 of The Blacklist is in full swing – but it’s season 9 we’re looking forward to. If you’ve been following the adventures of Raymond Reddington, the FBI’s most wanted criminal, you probably know that things are heating up rather quickly.

We can’t go into too much detail in regards to season 8 without revealing some massive spoilers, but if the quality is anything to go by, season 9 is going to be a banger. The series keeps you engaged without any quality loss and there’s always something new. So, if you’re a fan, keep your eyes peeled.

Peaky Blinders

Even though the sixth season’s production only began in January, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this show’s finale air by the end of this year. Yes, you read that right. Even though the show’s creator, Steven Knight, has promised that the story of the Shelby family will continue in another form, the sixth season is expected to be the show’s final one, and we can guess you’ll want to spend at least an eve binging it.

Peaky Blinders follows the story of the Shelby family, with Tommy Shelby being the main protagonist, and his family’s rise to power in Birmingham after the events of World War I being the main storyline. The five seasons that have aired so far have kept viewers on the edge of their seats, and expectations are high for the final one as well.


Last but not least, 2021 will give us the end of Ozark in its fourth and final season. The show that followed the lives of Marty and Wendy Byrde comes to an end, and a lot of people aren’t happy about it.

Whilst seemingly living a regular life, Marty is actually the top money launderer for Mexico’s second-largest drug cartel. When things start to heat up, he is forced to pack up his family and move from Chicago’s skyscrapers to the Ozarks, to protect them. It’s a slow-burn show that’s going to keep you engaged every minute of every episode, and we can’t wait for season four to come.  

And that wraps up The Witcher season 2 & returns 2021 – which show are you most looking forward to?
