After nearly two years of waiting, we’re about to head back and follow Geralt who is now united with Ciri going into season 2. The Witcher season 2 arrives on Netflix globally on December 17th, 2021 and if you’re planning on staying up or waking up early to watch, here’s when you’ll be able to watch where you live.
While you’re waiting for season 2 to drop, we’d implore you to check out the Studio Mir-produced anime movie that was released on Netflix this August. The movie, entitled The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is a context-rich film that can save you some time when searching for season 2.
This week is also a chance to re-watch season 1 of The Witcher, which has been climbing in the Top 10s. If you don’t fancy going back, Netflix (alongside others) has produced excellent recaps ahead of season 2 tomorrow.
Netflix will release the final five episodes on Netflix simultaneously around the world but because time is relative, you’ll need to know when that’ll be where you live (as not everybody lives in Los Angeles).

Even though Netflix is pretty good nowadays at updating itself when it comes to new season drops, it may still be the case that the show’s second season is not yet showing up on the streaming service. The good news is that it’s super simple to get Netflix to refresh to reflect changes in its library.
There are a couple of tricks you can perform but essentially, you’ll need to reload the Netflix app. On mobiles or app versions of Netflix (ie Netflix on your Roku, Fire Stick or Smart TV), navigate to the help section and there’s a reload Netflix button. For the exact same effect, you can turn off your device and switch it on again.
If you are watching Netflix via a web browser, it is important to either refresh your cache or shut down the site and then reopen it.
If the final season is still not showing after you’ve refreshed. Log in to Netflix and log out.
