At Witchercon, fans got a firsthand look at The Witcher Season 2 courtesy of a teaser trailer. The two-minute tease lays out the storyline of the new season, continuing Geralt’s mission to protect Cirilla. The fantasy series carries on where it left off with Geralt of Rivia convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden.
The hero continues with his mission to bring Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans, and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
At Witchercon, star Henry Cavill also revealed his journey of his character Geralt. “I played the Season One way deliberately, which was him out in the wilds and without the opportunity for vast swathes of dialogue,” he explained. “
I thought it best to be the man who says less because that seems like he’s thinking more. And that was the intention with that. But once you get into a scenario with Cirilla, and the Witchers and his home space and with those people who he already knows, I was of the opinion that you had to let him be verbose and be philosophical and speak more and be intellectual, because that’s what he is. He’s not just a big old white-haired brute.”
The Witcher’s returning cast includes Freya Allan (Cirilla), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer of Vengerberg), and Joey Batey (Jaskier), with Kim Bodnia (Vesemir) and Paul Bullion (Lambert). The Witcher Season 2 lands on Netflix beginning 17 December.
