The Witcher is an American fantasy drama web television series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Netflix. It is based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The plot is set in a medieval world on a landmass known as the continent. The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia ( Henry Cavill), a solitary monster hunter who finds his destiny linked to the sorceress Yennefer Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan).
The first season is based on The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, a collection of short stories that preceded the main witches’ saga. Moreover, it explores the formative events that shaped the three lead characters before their first encounters with each other.
However, after the climactic end to the eight episodes the first season, fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the second season. With its lofty budget and a big star leading the cast, the series is a major priority for Netflix, so it is no surprise that a second season has been announced. Netflix officially announced the show’s second season on the 13th of November 2019 and the directors of the show plan on releasing at least seven seasons.
Thus with Ciri in Geralt’s care, we may see him take her to Kaer Morhen to train as a Witcher though based on his conversation with his mother, it seems Geralt may not be keen to inflict that kind of brutal training on his child. Yennefer’s fate was left uncertain after she used her magic to defeat Nilfgaard’s army, and she may be weakened when the season 2 commences.
Moreover, we can also expect season 2 to introduce Vizimir ll, the king of Redania, and the members of his court including Sorceress Philippa Eilhart and Sigismund Dijkstra the head of Redania intel intel. Since the book itself has plenty of characters, it’s only natural to expect a lot of new faces in season 2.
