        • ‘The Witcher’ Renewed For Season 2 By Netflix Ahead Of Debut

          Weeks before The Witcher’s launch on Netflix, the streamer has renewed the fantasy series starring Henry Cavill for a second season. (See the announcement below). Netflix said Wednesday that production on the eight-episode Season 2 will begin in early 2020 in London for a planned debut in 2021.

          All eight episodes of The Witcher Season 1 will premiere globally on December 20.

          The series is based on the namesake fantasy novels, though the brand is widely known through the bestselling video game franchise. It stars Cavill as the grim Geralt of Rivia, the bane of supernatural beasties.

          The synopsis from Netflix: “The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.”

          Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan co-star — they along with Cavill will return for the sophomore season, Netflix said.

          The Witcher, touted as Netflix’s shot at a Game of Thrones-size fantasy hit, was created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich who serves as executive producer and showrunner. Tomek Baginski, Jason F. Brown, Sean Daniel, Mike Ostrowski, Steve Gaub and Jarosław Sawko are also executive producers.

          “I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri,” Schmidt Hissrich said today as part of the announcement.

                    • ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Renewed for Season 2 at CBS All Access

                      Patrick Stewart’s return as Captain Picard isn’t going to be a one-season affair.

                      CBS All Access has renewed “Star Trek: Picard” for a second season, over a month before its first season debuts.

                      The new show stars Stewart as he reprises his iconic, titular role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora also star. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.

                      Stewart and CBS’s “Star Trek” universe chief Alex Kurtzman executive produce alongside Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. Aaron Baiers serves as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer is a supervising producer.

                      Chabon had previously been named as the showrunner back in June, but the prolific author recently set an adaptation of his “Kavalier and Clay” novels at Showtime as part of an overall deal with CBS TV Studios, meaning that he is slated to step away from “Picard” to run that other project sometime in 2020.

                      Season 1 of “Picard” will premiere on Jan. 23, 2020. CBS All Access declined to comment.

                      News of the renewal became evident when the California Film Commission announced which shows would be receiving tax credits in the upcoming year on Monday morning. A season 2 of “Star Trek: Picard” was on the list alongside four new shows including “Nine Perfect Strangers” starring and executive produced by Nicole Kidman, and the “Untitled Showtime Lakers Project” at HBO which hails from executive producer Adam McKay.

                      “Picard” is the latest in a growing line of series that CBS is rolling out to build up its “Star Trek” TV universe. In addition to “Star Trek: Discovery,” which finished airing its second season on All Access back in April, upcoming shows include the animated comedy “Star Trek: Lower Decks” and a Nickelodeon animated series as well. A drama series centered on Michelle Yeoh’s character from “Discovery” is also currently in development at All Access.

                              • Netflix Announces The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf

                                The world of Netflix's The Witcher is about to get even bigger! Netflix today has announced a new anime film set in the world of the Witcher called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Very few details have been revealed at this point, but the showrunner from the live-action series, Lauren S. Hissrich, is attached.

                                In addition to Hissrich, Netflix announced that Beau DeMayo, who penned an episode of the live-action series for Netflix, is also working on the project. As for who, exactly, will animate the film, that's the legendary animation studio Studio Mir. Studio Mir, if you're not familiar, is known for work on The Legend of Korra in addition to Voltron: Legendary Defender for Netflix.

                                Here's the logline for the new anime film, according to Netflix: "The world of The Witcher expands in this anime film that explores a powerful new threat facing the Continent."

                                Here's how Netflix describes the series:

                                "Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together."

                                The first eight-episode season of Netflix's The Witcher is available to stream on the platform now. It has already been renewed for a second season. Lauren S. Hissrich serves as showrunner. It stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Freya Allan as Ciri.
