Netflix has unveiled a new trailer and several new clips for Season 2 of The Witcher, which arrives on Netflix on December 17, 2021. It is also announced that Season 3 is officially in the works.
Season 2 of The Witcher will pick up where the premiere ended, with Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) and Ciri (Freya Allan) united under the Law of Surprise, after Season 1 carefully prepared for their eventual meeting. This second season will see Geralt take Ciri to Kaer Morhen, a place where witers are trained.
This will bring Geralt back in touch with Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), the character previously introduced in the animated film Nightmare of the Wolf. Vesemir appears in the trailer for the first time in live-action.
The first clip sees Geralt catch up with an old friend, Nivellen, who is played by Game of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju. Their conversation sheds light on Geralt’s background, as well as his current situation with Ciri.
The second clip shows Geralt searching for a creature known as Bruxa, after waking Ciri. Ciri sets out to meet Roach, Geralt’s horse, while our protagonist prepares for an encounter with monsters. See that one here:
The full trailer, meanwhile, has a lot more meat on its bones, delivering more of the series than we’ve seen so far with a little clue as to what happened to Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) afterward. the final brutal events of season 1.
Joey Batey’s fan-favorite bard, Dandelion, also makes an appearance. Check out the trailer here, which mixes new footage with a Season 1 recap:
Three months left, and you’ll have ten more episodes of Netflix’s popular series to enjoy.
A second Witcher animated film is also in the works, it has been revealed, along with a more family-friendly series. It’s unclear when The Witcher Season 3 will go into production, but hopefully the early renewal means we won’t have to wait another two years to see more of the series.
