The Witcher Season 2 Storyline premiered on the 20th and with just 8 episodes left us with all the hype to see the continuation of Geralt de Rivia’s story. This note contains spoilers for The Witcher, broadcast on Netflix.
Netflix has adopted the epic fantasy genre with its television adaptation of The Witcher , and after the culminating end of the first season of eight episodes, fans are already eager for season 2. Starring Henry Cavill in the lead role as Geralt of Rivia, a hired monster killer, The Witcher is based on a series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski , and was adapted for television by Lauren S. Hissrich (The Defenders).
Set in a fantasy world known as Continent, Season 1 of The Witcher divides its focus between Geralt, a sorceress named Yennefer de Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan), a young princess with an important destiny. The three are involved in politics and war as the kingdom of Nilfgaard advances through the earth, with the aim of conquering the entire continent. Although Geralt tries to concentrate on killing monsters for coins, the world is full of people trying to take him to his cause.
With its luxurious budget and a great star leading the cast, The Witcher is clearly an important priority for Netflix, so it is not surprising that a second season had a green light before the first was released. Here is everything we know so far about the witcher netflix season 2.
Netflix officially announced Season 2 of The Witcher in November 2019, with an image of Geralt’s two swords (steel to kill humans, silver to kill monsters). Hissrich responded to the news with jubilation, saying: “I couldn’t be more proud of what the amazing cast and crew of The Witcher have achieved, and I can’t wait for the world to deepen and enjoy these stories with us.”
The Witcher season 2 announcement also came with the news that we can expect more episodes in 2021. The filming of season 1 began in October 2018 and the episodes were released in December 2019, so we can expect a Similar time scale for the production of season 2. The Witcher netflix season 2 will begin filming in early 2020, so expect to see new episodes in the middle or end of 2021.
The Witcher is closely based on Sapkowski’s books , and season 1 concludes with the Battle of Sodden Hill, which marks the end of the first Northern War . The first season is based primarily on the first two collections of Geralt de Rivia stories : The Sword of Destiny and The Last Wish , and also partly in the first novel, Blood of Elves . In particular, season 1 is divided into three different timelines: Yennefer, Geralt and Ciri. The roads of Geralt and Yennefer intersect twice in the first season, and Geraltand Ciri finally meet at the end, where the three timelines converge. It is likely, now that the characters meet, that the witcher netflix season 2 will have a more linear approach.
Now that Ciri is under Geralt’s care , we can see him take her to Kaer Morhen to train as a sorcerer, although according to his conversation with his mother, it seems that Geralt may not be willing to inflict such brutal training on his adopted daughter. Yennefer’s fate was uncertain after he used his magic to defeat the Nilfgaard army , and it seems he may be in danger of death when Season 2 of The Witcher begins . In the books, Yennefer develops a close relationship with Ciri, so we hope to see them interact in the next season.
Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri are the only regular cast members in season 1 of The Witcher (which appears in each episode), but there are several recurring cast members expected to return for season 2, including Joey Batey as a bard friend from Geralt, Jaskier, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia de Vries , Lars Mikkelsen as Stregobor, Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold and Eamon Farren as Cahir. Interestingly, the end of season 1 featured a brief voiceover from Geralt’s mentor , Vesemir,and the credits reveal that “Young Vesemir” was played by Theo James (known for his role in the Divergent films). James is too young to play the version of Vesemir that is alive on the current stage of the show: an old gray-haired warrior and the oldest sorcerer of Kaer Morhen , so we can expect someone new to be chosen for the role of the witcher netflix season 2 .
With the end of Season 1 of The Witcher moving the action north, we can also expect Season 2 to present Vizimir II, the King of Redania, and members of his court, including the sorceress Philippa Eilhart and Sigismund Dijkstra , the Head of Redanian Intelligence. The books have many other characters to fill the world of The Witcher , so many new faces are expected in the witcher netflix season 2.
