‘You’, ‘The Witcher’ new seasons to release in late 2021: Netflix

Covid-19 caused delays in the production of many shows, even streaming giant Netflix had to face these delays. However, the platform has promised the new seasons of its popular shows will release later this year.

Recently, Netflix revealed that the new seasons of shows like ‘The Witcher’ and ‘You’, two of its biggest series, will release in the 4th quarter of 2021 (October-December) after facing pandemic-related delays.

Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a recent investor video:

“What happened in the first part of this year was that a lot of the projects that we’d hoped to come out earlier did get pushed because of the post-production delays and Covid delays and we think we’ll get back to a much steadier state in the back half of the year, certainly in Q4 where we have the returning seasons of some of our most popular shows like The Witcher and You and Cobra Kai as well as some big tentpole movies that came to market a little slower than we’d hoped like Red Notice and Escape From Spiderhead.”

The Witcher‘s first released in 2019 and is based on a book by the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. You, on the other hand, was first released in 2018 and is based on the bestselling books by Caroline Kepnes.

Along with this, Cobra Kai‘s 4th season will also release in the 4th quarter, this season has been specifically produced for the streaming platform. Cobra Kai initially streamed on YouTube from where it was picked up by Netflix. It is a sequel to Karate Kid.
