Netflix’s The Witch has provided fans with an exciting new tease as an early Christmas gift. Posted to Twitter as part of the show’s ongoing “Witchmas” event, the first page of the script for season 2, program 1 gave a taste of how the expected series will begin.
Fans who have studied Andrzej Sapkowski’s original novels and short stories will definitely get a deja vu feel from the page. As the scene described unfolds, it seems to draw on a new character that has been proven to jump from page to screen.
Even before this page was released, fans knew that Nivellen would be introduced to the new season somehow. Game of Thrones favorite, Kristofer Hivju, has been proven to playing the character before the filming season began months ago.
Hivju was one of the first members of the team and the team on display to contract with COVID-19. This occurred in the early days of the worldwide spread of the disease, and weeks later they were all represented on hiatus.
The Witch season 2 will release sometime in 2021. With the huge delay in filming, it may not hit Netflix until well into the summer.
