The Witcher season 2 is nearly here. If you're anything like us, you're probably counting down the hours until you can binge and devour all eight episodes of the new season on Netflix.

But, uhh, when is The Witcher season 2 available to stream? Good question - and not a silly one. In the age of pre-loads and taking into account time zones, it can be tricky to figure out exactly what happens where you live. We're here to keep it simple so you can watch the new episodes as soon as they land.

The Witcher season 2 will launch at midnight Pacific/3am Eastern in the US. That’s a slightly more manageable 8am GMT in the UK.

Unlike with Disney Plus, there’s not any wiggle room here – it won’t appear any earlier. If it’s not on the main landing page, refresh at the times listed above.

If you’re not in the US or UK, use this time zone converter (and set your alarms if you need to).

While you wait for the big day, read our in-depth interview with The Witcher cast and its showrunner. And be sure to find out why Henry Cavill is keen to enter talks about a Mass Effect TV show – if the conditions are right.

I'm the Senior Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
