We’re a little less than one month away from the debut of Netflix’s newest show — The Witcher — which is currently scheduled to be released on December 20.

It was previously revealed that the first season of The Witcher will be eight episodes long, and on Friday, Netflix provided titles for all eight episodes, and, on top of that, each episode title was followed with a brief description. You can check out the episode titles and descriptions below.


  1. The End’s Beginning: “A monster slain, a butcher named.”
  2. Four Marks: “We look at a sorceress’s earlier days.”
  3. Betrayer Moon: “A picky eater, a family shamed.”
  4. Of Banquets, Bastards and Burials: “The Law of Surprise is how one repays.”
  5. Bottled Appetites: “A fateful meeting, a bard is maimed.”
  6. Rare Species: The hunt for a dragon is underway.”
  7. Before a Fall: “A return to before a kingdom is flamed.”
  8. Much More: “The Witcher Family as you all like to say.”

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Netflix had already ordered a second season of The Witcher, thus guaranteeing that the show, which is based on the book series, will get at least two seasons. Of course, the streaming service is hoping that their newest show will end up being the next Game of Thrones, as GoT officially ended back in May.

Even though, as of right now, Netflix has only ordered two seasons of The Witcher, showrunner, and writer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has seven seasons mapped out. So, it’s pretty safe to assume that, if it’s a hit, the show will get at least seven seasons.

“Second season? I’ve done it for seven seasons,” said The Witcher’s showrunner. “Right now it’s just about, ‘How do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?’ The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.”

With CD Projekt Red, who are the developers of the game series, fully committed to their newest IP — Cyberpunk 2077 — it’ll probably be a while before we see the next entry into The Witcher franchise. But, if the show is an overwhelming success, we might see Geralt of Rivia return to consoles and PC sooner rather than later,

For now, though, the only new Witcher-related content we have to look forward to will launch via Netflix in just under a month from today.
