Considered one of Netflix’s biggest hits, The Witcher series continues its momentum and breaks records with its season 2.
462.5 million hours. This is the time we spent Netflix users watching season 2 of The Witcher, during its first 28 days of broadcast on the platform, and across the world. A record that places it directly in seventh position of the most watched Anglo-Saxon series on Netflix. A classification in which we find already in third position season 1. With such numbers, The Witcher proves once again that it is among the most popular shows on the streaming platform, despite the criticisms emitted at the end of these first two seasons.
Faced with such an undeniable success, we understand that Netflix does not want to let go of the song anytime soon. While the broadcast of season 2 did not begin until last December, a season 3 has already been ordered by the platform. Added to this is a spin-off, The Witcher: The Origins of Blood, which will serve as a prequel and whose action takes place almost 1,200 years before the arrival of Geralt of Rivia. The series will reveal the identity of the first Witcher, and examine the genesis of the conjunction of the Spheres, mentioned multiple times during season 2 of The Witcher.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
The Witcher, synonymous with success for Henry Cavill
The universe of The Witcher is rich in myths, legends and creatures, but also in characters. The protagonists for the most part memorable, whether secondary or at the heart of several plots. Headlining, we obviously find the Witcher Geralt de Riv, interpreted par Henry Cavill. This role allowed the British actor to convince and conquer a new audience, not always aware of his adventures in the costume of Superman, or even of his escapades in the series. The Tudors. A role that is sort of timely considering Clark Kent’s bleak fate in the DCEU, and including Henry Cavill, big fan of the universe of The Witcher, had always dreamed of.
