Great News! The Witcher Season 2 is going to be released on Netflix on the 17th of December 2021. Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
What we know so far about The Witcher Season 2
Season 2 picks up where Season 1 ended. Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings 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.
The release date and trailer for The Witcher Season 2 was revealed over the weekend during an online event called WitcherCon. Check out the trailer below:
The episode titles for The Witcher Season 2 were revealed as part of WitcherCon. They are: ‘A Grain of Truth’, ‘Kaer Morhen’, ‘What Is Lost’, ‘Redanian Intelligence’, ‘Turn Your Back’, ‘Dear Friend’, ‘Voleth Meir’ and one top secret title that was not revealed for the eighth and final episode of the season.
Henry Cavill (Geralt), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) and Freya Allan (Ciri) are all set to return for season 2. The full cast for the show has also been revealed by Netflix including key new characters. It’s confirmed that, as expected, Ciri will take center stage in the new season.
Three new witchers are joining the cast: Lambert, played by Paul Bullion, and Coën, played by Yasen Atour. The Witcher season 2 will take us to Kaer Morhen, where witchers are trained. And, indeed, fans of the book and games will already be familiar with Lambert and Eskel, both of whom belong to the Wolf Witcher school just like Geralt and Vesemir.
In terms of more official announcements for the cast, we know that Killing Eve’s Kim Bodnia plays witcher trainer, Vesemir, and Kristofer Hivju – best known as Game of Thrones‘ Tormund Giantsbane – will play Nivellen. Other castings include Mecia Simson as Francesca, Aisha Fabienne Ross as Lydia and Agnes Bjorn as Vereena.
Well, there you have it, everything we know about the upcoming season so far. As a fan of the TV show and the games I can safely say that I’m definitely excited to watch The Witcher Season 2 when it’s finally released on Netflix in December 2021. I’m pretty sure many of you reading this are excited as well.
