The Witcher Showrunner Says Season 2 "Will Be Hot"

Netflix's The Witcher is seriously expanding in the near future, but first and foremost is Season 2 of the original series, set to launch on December 17th. Ahead of the new season but after the big TUDUM reveals, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich has offered a look back to before the launch of the first season as well as a bit of a preview of what's to come in the new season.

Hissrich took to Twitter early this morning to share a bit taken from an interview with author Andrzej Sapkowski, creator of the franchise, prior to the release of the first season that essentially boiled down to him wanting viewers to be left hot, in every sense, by the show. And according to her, Season 2 will be exactly that: hot.

"Even without timelines, S2 will be hot in all the ways Mr. Sapkowski hoped," Hissrich stated. "And I cannot WAIT to dive back into impassioned debates with fans." You can check it out for yourself below:
