Fans of The Witcher, rejoice! The wait is over. It’s been two long years since Season 1 hit our screens, but The Witcher is finally back with its second season. Some of you may be wondering how you can watch The Witcher Season 2 online on FireStick from anywhere. Where is this show available? Which platforms have it? Can you watch it for free? In this guide, I will answer all these questions for you and explain how you can stream The Witcher Season 2 from anywhere.
What Is The Witcher About?
The Witcher is a fantasy TV show based on the book series of the same title by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The main character of the story is Geralt of Rivia (played by Henry Cavill), who is a witcher by profession.
What’s a witcher, I hear you ask? A witcher is a mutant monster hunter who fights creatures for money. You can imagine a scary, magic freelance soldier. That’s basically who Geralt of Rivia is.
But he isn’t the only important character. During Season 1, we also met others, like Princess Ciri of Cintra (Freya Allan) and the quarter-elf sorceress, Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra). These two women play a major part in Geralt’s life and journey. Oh, and let’s not forget about Jaskier (Joey Batey). Every good fantasy story needs its own slightly annoying bard.
The show’s first season, which came out in December 2019, was based on a series of short stories (from The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny) that serve as prequels to the main saga. If you’ve watched Season 1, you’ll know that there were lots of time jumps and timelines. That’s why.
Season 2 is likely to be more focused and linear, as it finally dives into the novels. There is a lot of excitement about this newest installment, and rightly so. Rumor has it this new season is even better than the last one. At least that’s what the critics say.
Where Can You Watch The Witcher Season 2?
The Witcher is a Netflix original series. This means that it’s distributed by and available on Netflix. All eight new episodes of Season 2 have been dropped worldwide on the platform on December 17, 2021.
So, if you already have a Netflix account, you can start watching. But don’t worry if you don’t – I’ll show you what you can do to stream The Witcher Season 2 from anywhere right away.
Here’s how to install Netflix on FireStick, if you don’t have it already.
Can You Watch The Witcher Season 2 For Free?
Unfortunately, as of now, Netflix no longer offers free trials. You will have to purchase a membership to be able to stream movies and TV shows (including The Witcher Season 2) on Netflix. The fees start at $8.99 for the basic package. The standard package costs $13.99, and the premium is $17.99.
While it is a shame that there are no more free trials available, Netflix is still worth it. Especially if you are, like me, dying to know what happens next on The Witcher!
Tip: Get ExpressVPN, connect Turkey server, and sign up for Netflix Turkey. It costs less than $2/month. Don’t worry about ExpressVPN cost, you can get a full refund within 30 days.
How to Watch The Witcher Season 2 on FireStick From Anywhere
All in all, Netflix is widely available. You can access Netflix in over 190 countries, and The Witcher Season 2 will be available in all of them. However, if you are in China, Crimea, North Korea, or Syria, you might know that Netflix isn’t available in your country.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still watch The Witcher! In fact, you can. It’s simple. I’ll show you how.
If you live in one of the countries mentioned above, all you have to do to gain access to Netflix is set up a VPN. A VPN (or “Virtual Private Network”) is a helpful tool that lets you unblock geo-restrictions.
That’s right. By getting a VPN, you will be able to change your location, which will allow you to access Netflix even if you are in a country where the platform is technically not available. Yes, it’s that simple!
There are lots of VPN options out there, but I highly recommend ExpressVPN. Trust me, it’s the best.
It has lots of useful features beyond just changing your location. It’s ultra-fast, great for privacy reasons and secure browsing, and it even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning that if you’re not fully satisfied with the service for any reason, ExpressVPN will give you a full refund if you cancel within the first 30 days.
Plus, they have a 24/7 customer support service, so you can always get help if needed.
How to Install ExpressVPN on FireStick
Now that you know why you need a VPN, let’s take a look at how to install it on FireStick. Just follow these easy steps:
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Power ON your Fire TV Stick and go to Find followed by Search option.
Step 3: Now type “Expressvpn” (without quotes) in the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it shows up in the search results.
Step 4: Click Download to install the ExpressVPN app on Fire TV / Stick.
Step 5: Open the app and enter the login credentials that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click Sign in.
Step 6: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.

Get Ready For The Witcher Season 2
Once you’ve installed your VPN, you can easily change your location to any country of your choosing. The options are endless. You can go with the US, the UK, Canada – or anywhere else you fancy. Then sign up for a Netflix account from your “new location”, and voilà, you’re done.
All that’s left now is to make yourself a nice cup of tea (or coffee), grab some blankets, invite your friends over, and put The Witcher Season 2 on. I can’t wait to see what Geralt, Yennefer, and Princess Ciri are up to this time.
But the fun doesn’t have to stop once you’ve finished The Witcher. After all, you have your Netflix account and ExpressVPN now. Why not try some of the other popular shows currently streaming on Netflix? Just follow the same steps and get ready to explore even more exciting stories.
