The Witcher, Cobra Kai, and You, some of Netflix's biggest dramas suffered from Covid-19 delays but there is hope for fans of these shows. Fans may see the return of these series before 2021 ends.
According to Deadline, Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos stated that the company's investor video for the first quarter financial results reveals that the new seasons for both The Witcher and You will be launched in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Cobra Kai Season 4 will join The Witcher and You in its return in Q4 of 2021. Cobra Kai's first season was produced for Netflix. Feature films Escape From Spiderhead and Red Notice will also be available in Q4. In the first part of 2021, plenty of the projects that Netflix was hoping to come out earlier were pushed to another date due to post-production delays, mostly caused by COVID-19. The company believes that they can return to a steady state at the other half of the year.
The Witcher already finished its production for the second season of the series. The series was in production for over the year due to some production delays. It is one of Netflix's most high-profile series. Meanwhile, the series title You was renewed to have a third season in January 2020. The show was in production in Los Angeles last December 2020 but when the Covid shutdown happened the production was moved to January 2021.
The new development and update will mean that Netflix is working on normalizing its releases by ensuring that some of its high-profile projects are released within the year.
