Fans of the monster-hunting Geralt of Rivia, rejoice. While there’s been no solid word when the second season of the Netflix live-action series of the Witcher will be available on their streaming service, there’s other news that should make many fans of the franchise happy. Netflix and CD PROJEKT RED, the developer and publisher of a trilogy of The Witcher games, have recently announced a partnership to host the first-ever WitcherCon.
Geralt, meet Geralt.

WitcherCon will be officially hosted on July 9 on Netflix and CD PROJEKT RED’s YouTube and Twitch channels.
News of this event was announced during Netflix’s online streaming event, Geeked Week. This event definitely played in the gaming and pop culture sandbox, especially with trailers and teasers for Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Cuphead, and of, course, The Witcher. the Witcher began life as a set of fantasy novels, then in 2007, the first of the three games based on The Witcher was published. in 2019, the first season of The Witcher aired on Netflix.
Will the WitcherCon be a platform to celebrate the deep history of lore from The Witcher or will there be any news for gamers, readers, or TV-watchers? Stay tuned, as the saying goes — we’ll know in a few short weeks!
In the meantime, the official WitcherCon website is online, so far with calendaring and links to streams for July 9.
