Netflix has released the first teaser for the second season of the highly anticipated fantasy series The Witcher. The video was unveiled as part of a livestream event, with a focus on Ciri played by Freya Allan. “I have to understand.” – Ciri. Along with Freya Allan, Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Joey Batey as Jaskier return to their roles.
New faces arriving with the second season are Kim Bodnia (Killing Eve) as Vesemir, Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton) as Nenneke, Graham McTavish (Outlander) as Dijkstra, Christopher Hivu (Game of Thrones) as Nivellen, Yasen Atour (Young Wallender) as Coen, Agnes Bjorn as Vereena, Paul Bullion (Peaky Blinders) as Lambert, Thue Ersted Rasmussen (Fast and Furious 9) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia, Mecia Simson as Francesca, Simon Callow and Liz Carr as Codringher and Fenn, Chris Fulton as Rience, Cassie Clare as Philippa Eilhart and Kevin Doyle as Ba’lian.
Convinced that Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cyril to the safest place he knows, to his childhood home Kaer Morhen. While the kings, elves, humans and demons of the continent strive to prevail outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious inner power she possesses.
The second season with its eight episodes arrives this year, but the exact date is not yet known.
But that’s not all, Netflix and CD PROJECT RED have joined forces to provide WitcherCon to fans of the franchise on July 9th. It is an online convention that will be streamed on Netflix and on the YouTube and Twitch channels CD PROJEKT REDA. It has already been announced that WitcherCon will offer a lot of surprises and exclusives, such as a more concrete (deeper) look at the mobile game The Witcher: Monster Slayer, Netflix’s feature series, but also the anime film Nightmare of the Wolf.
The convention will also have interactive panels, which will, among other things, reveal numerous previously unseen videos behind the scenes. But what won’t be is the announcement of some new game from the world of Witcher. But we expect that there will be enough interesting things without it, and of course a new merch will be revealed, so we hope for a new Fuko POP line! figurine. Also, if you have a question related to the second season of the Netflix feature series that you desperately want to be answered, you have the opportunity to ask it on Witcher’s official Twitter profile, and maybe you’ll get an answer soon.
