When one fan-favorite fantasy drama series ends, another swoops right in to fill the space left in its absence. We’re of course referencing HBO’s long-reigning pop culture behemoth Game of Thrones, which probably isn’t an accurate point of reference, but it’s only natural for Netflix’s new hit The Witcher. Based on the series of fantasy novels of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski, Henry Cavill stars in The Witcher as Geralt of Rivia and Freya Allan as Crown Princess of Ciri, whose stories are intertwined through time before coming together for the invasion of Nilfgaard.

It’s very likely that if you’ve never watched The Witcher, that description means nothing to you. But when has a fantasy series ever made any sense out of context? Obviously, those who consumed eight-episode first season and made it one of the most popular new series understand the intertwining stories and can’t wait for the next eight episodes. However, if you haven’t yet dived into the vast world of The Witcher, now is your chance. On top of the second season, Netflix has planned an animated spin-off film and a live-action prequel limited series. Get into it in 2021!
