Exciting stuff, right?
Season two of Netflix's smash hit adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski novels, starring Henry Cavill and Anya Chalotra as Geralt of Rivia and Yennefer of Vengerburg, has been a long time coming, but we'll finally get to see what's in store this December.
December 17, to be precise.
The news was announced alongside a whole host of other big reveals from Netflix at their TUDUM global fan event.
You'll also be pleased to learn that the show is headed back for a third series, as well. Netflix has just this second announced that they'll be bringing The Witcher out for a third time, which is great news for fans of coin-tossing and brooding.
But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. First off, what can we expect from this next series?
Well, according to an interview with Cavill, Geralt of Rivia is going to grow into a father figure to Ciri, with whom he was reunited at the end of the last series.
He told Entertainment Weekly: "He's got this deep down White Knight Syndrome,
"Even though every time he acts upon it, it gets him into some serious trouble - and puts him and everyone else in a worse position than initially intended.
"But with Ciri, she's definitely bringing out the paternal side of Geralt.
"While he hasn't necessarily been someone who craved children, he does take quite naturally to being a protector."
Cavill also explained that the new series might not have the same timeline-skipping weirdness that made the first outing so confusing at times.
However, he did say that there might be 'multiple cliff-hangers throughout a [single] episode.'
Of course, we would expect nothing less.
We'll also be introduced to some new characters, including Kim Bodnia's character Vesemir.
Vesemir is a fellow Witcher and something of a paternal figure to Geralt himself.
Speaking about their on-screen roles, Cavill explained: "Kim and I were discussing the emotionality of these characters, and Kim brings some powerful emotion to [the role] and a real sense of soul and heart and connection to the wild and connection to nature.
"It's beautiful to watch and beautiful to be a part of. Some of my favourite scenes I got to perform with Kim. He does bring something really special to the character, and I think people are really going to enjoy it."
Well, we don't have that long to wait now, folks.
