The next seasons of Netflix shows such as The Witcher and Cobra Kai will release this year. Netflix has said The Witcher Season 2 and Cobra Kai Season 4 will release sometime in Q4. Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos revealed on the company’s investor video for its first-quarter financial results that new seasons of both shows will release in the fourth quarter of the year.
Sarandos also revealed another show, You, along with movies Red Notice, and Escape from Spiderhead will hit in Q4 of this year.
The two shows we cover a lot here on LRM are The Witcher and Cobra Kai. The Witcher Season 2 recently wrapped filming, and I wondered when we would see it? It’s good to know The Witcher Season 2 will be out sometime in the tail end of this year. I’ve still to ‘get into’ Cobra Kai so far, though my Wife does watch it. Loads of fellow LRM contributors love the show though, and we do have a regular podcast during a new season.
Now it’s not hard to guess why all these big shows are going to come along at once. The answer is of course COVID-19. Here is what Sarandos said, courtesy of Deadline.
“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’.”
