A Discovery of Witches Season 2 Release Date: When can we expect Season 2?
In November 2018, Sky renewed A Discovery of Witches for a second and third season. As of now, the show is expected to air in January 2021, as they were luckily able to wrap up production in January 2020, before the coronavirus outbreak. But, things seemed to have taken a toll on the post-production and editing process, which is why the release date was scheduled a year from the completion of filming.
