This one is going to be a big one for fans of the series, including myself. The Witcher, based on the books by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, is finally coming back for a season 2. And we couldn’t be more excited! Fans of the series, or the books, or maybe the games, or anything really, have a lot of reason to celebrate. The Witcher has been subject to so many delays up until now. First, the COVID pandemic delayed The Witcher Season 2 for so many months. Then, Henry Cavill picked an injury on set that resulted in a halt on production for the show. So it has been a long long wait for us fans. But now, with WitcherCon, the Witcher season 2 teaser trailer has been released. And there’s a lot we have to talk about. So let us get right into what the teaser holds.
The Witcher Season 2 Teaser: First Look
The Witcher Season 2 teaser trailer picks up right where the first season left off. Geralt has finally met up with Ciri and the girl is now in his safe hands. They will be travelling to the legendary Kaer Morhen, where Witchers are made, and trained. It is the home of the witchers, and soon will be home to Ciri too. Because she’s going to undergo all the Witcher trials, and fans of the series who are up to date on all the trivia know how painful they can be. After all, they’re the reason Geralt got the name Wolf in the first place. And the teaser makes this clear too. It paints the Witcher trials with a haunting vibe, and a very scary one too. What remains to be seen is the direction the show will take regarding Ciri’s trials.
The teaser just doesn’t end there though. We see a lot more. Geralt fighting humans and monsters, in the snow, and just doing his own thing. As witchers are supposed to do. Another noteworthy point from the trailer is Yennefer’s return. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who are already familiar with the series, but for those who have only watched the show, it is a huge revelation. After her disappearance at the battle of Sodden Hill, this is her first appearance on the show. And we’re really happy to see her back in all her elegance and beauty. Yennefer is a huge part of the series and it would have been quite empty without her. Still, this isn’t all. There’s a lot more to talk about when it comes to the Witcher Season 2.
What Else Do We Know?
The Witcher Season 2 teaser did a great job at fleshing out many details for the second season of the show. It also provided fans with a good first look at what is yet to come. But a lot has also happened behind the scenes. The second season for the show will apparently be returning with a lot of new cast members and a lot of new characters. And that will be something to look forward to. In addition to that, the second season for the show won’t just be drawing its inspiration from one book. Instead, season 2 is going to be inspired by multiple books and a collection of stories from the Witcher universe. In fact, we even have a first look, as Netflix has revealed a single page from the script for the Witcher Season 2. It is about a monster who is on the prowl and haunting a merchant with his family. And Geralt is talking to him. That’s also one of the things Henry Cavill, the star of the series, spoke about. We can expect Geralt to talk a lot more in this second season.
