After a setback due to the pandemic, The Witcher's second season is going to pick up filming once again this August. That means fans still have quite a bit of time to wait for the season's premiere on Netflix, but showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich is sharing some info about the season's direction.
In an interview with TV Guide, Hissrich addressed complaints of Season 1 being too hard to follow. Season 2 is going to make sure to fix that.
I still kind of look back at Season 1 and think, how did that all come together? The timelines are obviously one of the most controversial aspects of the show. I continue to be in love with them and will fight for them and be passionate about them. To me, it's the best way to tell the stories that I wanted to tell. I do hear that there was an audience out there that was a little like, "What the hell is going on? Why don't I understand this?" I think for those people, Season 2 will be a lot easier to follow. I think Season 2 aligns all of our characters on a similar timeline. We're playing with time a little bit still, but in a different way, an easier, I think, to swallow away.
