Without much further ado, Netflix finally revealed the release date for The Witcher Season 2.

The Witcher fans were in for a surprise with last week’s first ever WitcherCon. The three-hour online livestream revealed tons of new content for the growing franchise.

Besides a new video game, and a special message from the creator himself—Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, the much awaited sequel for the live-action Netflix series released an official teaser trailer and will drop the new season on December 17 this year.

Based on the trailer, Season 2 is sure to revolve around the home and training ground for Witchers, Kaer Morhen. It is a snowy, mountainous place where Geralt brings Ciri to in order to hone her skills and be trained. It is highly likely that season 2 will adapt Sapkowski’s Blood of Elves novel. The book follows Geralt and Ciri at the old fortress where witchers of the School of the Wolf are trained.

Netflix also dropped the title for the first seven episodes of the new season on Twitter: “A Grain of Truth,” “Kaer Morhen,” “What Is Lost,” “Redanian Intelligence,” “Turn Your Back,” “Dear Friend,” and “Voleth Meir.”

The Witcher sees the return of Henry Cavill who, in fact, is also a gamer and has been a huge fan of the franchise itself. Joining Cavill in yet another adventure are Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan as Yennefer and Ciri respectively. Do not fret—fan favorite travelling bard Jaskier is also back, portrayed by Joey Batey.

Aside from its original line-up, fans can also expect new faces. Yasen Atour is set to play Coen Agnes; Bjorn as Vereena; Paul Bullion as Lambert; Kristofer Hivju as Nivellen; Thue Ersted Rasmussen as Eskel; Aisha Fabienne Ross as Lydia; Mecia Simson as Francesca; and Kim Bodnia as Vesemir.
