Netflix gave an early Halloween present to “Witcher” fans, dropping the full-length trailer for Season 2 on Friday.
The series will (finally) return for its second season on Dec. 17, which will come nearly two years after it debuted as Netflix’s most-watched original series (that has since been surpassed by both “Bridgerton” and “Squid Game”).
