Netflix announced it will partner with CD Projekt Red to host the first-ever WitcherCon, starting July 9. The digital event will be based on The Witcher, the fantasy book series, Netflix series and video game franchise that has amassed a fervent fan base since Netflix released the first season of the show in December 2019.

Netflix on Friday also shared a short teaser clip of season 2 that features the character Ciri, played by Freya Allan.

News of WitcherCon comes as Netflix wraps up its first-ever Geeked Week, a virtual event that began June 7 and ends today. Netflix has teased upcoming releases of several popular shows besides The Witcher, including He-Man, which will feature Star Wars star Mark Hamill voicing legendary villain Skeletor, and the wildly popular Netflix original series, Stranger Things.

Although Netflix’s production of The Witcher’s second season has reportedly been wrapped since April, an official release date has yet to be announced. 

Netflix didn’t respond immediately to a request for comment.
