BEGIN SLIDESHOW

Netflix announced the news on Twitter, with the account posting: "Bad news: You still have to wait 37 days for season one of The Witcher". Directors and additional cast information will be announced at a later date, Netflix says.

The main trailer for the first season of The Witcher showcased the series' huge budget, teasing a show that could match Game of Thrones in sheer scale.

The Witcher hasn't even hit Netflix yet, but the show is already being renewed for a second season.

Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri will be back for more adventures.in Season Two. While The Witcher has also gone on to be a successful gaming franchise, the series will be an adaptation of the original source material.

While this news guarantees we'll see at least two seasons of The Witcher, it appears Hissrich is looking even further ahead.

Based on a collection of books by author Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher has a lot of background lore and many stories to pick from. But when destiny hurtles Geralt toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a risky secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

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

With this official second season renewal, it sounds like Hissrich is well on her way toward her seven-season plan for the show. Among the other members of the series' large ensemble cast are Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Emma Appleton.

The Witcher season one arrives December 20 on Netflix.
