The second season of The Witcher is locked in for the holidays. Netflix announced today that The Witcher Season 2 will arrive on the streaming service on Dec. 17, 2021.

The news is part of today’s WitcherCon festivities, and a few more details about the upcoming season have been teased. Netflix posted a list of titles for each episode (barring the last one), and some behind-the-scenes interviews point at how characters’ stories might start to intersect in the second season. [Update: Netflix just posted the teaser trailer for the second season as well.]

The Witcher seems to be a hit for Netflix, as there looks to be some indications that the streaming service plans to keep it going. And though it hasn’t quite caught up yet to the stories of the video games, it’s been fun as a book reader to see some of these original stories—especially those about Geralt and Yen—adapted.

If you were hoping for some news about a Witcher game today, however, the bad news is there won’t be any. CD Projekt confirmed there won’t be any reveal of a new Witcher game during today’s presentation.

Still, at least the holidays will be filled with that Witcher cheer. We’ll see what’s next for Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri on Dec. 17.
