The Witcher Is Tracking to Be Netflix's Most-Viewed First Season


Whereas the dialog round Netflix's new excessive fantasy collection The Witcher stays combined-we had some ideas about that ending ourselves!-one factor is evident: virtually everybody was watching.

And that's exactly what Netflix plans to do with a new Witcher anime film. Now, you need to have "chose [n] to watch and did watch for at least 2 minutes - long enough to indicate the choice was intentional". And a film is the ideal way to keep fans' attention during the long wait for The Witcher season two in 2021. So the numbers are somewhat deceiving in that full episodes were not watched, so it's hard to determine how many people have truly watched The Witcher. During the storyline of the games, players are forced to choose between the two to pursue a romance, so it could be possible that we'll see Geralt face a similar dilemma in season 2.
