The Witcher season 2 on Netflix, it’s not yet for now. To be patient before the release of the rest of the adventures of Geralt de Riv and his companions, here is a summary of all the information we already have about him.
At the end of 2020, cases of Covid-19 in the technical team had forced the interruption of production. According to Deadline, Henry Cavill (Geralt de Riv), was also slightly injured on the set at the same time. He had therefore been put to rest.
On Netflix, it was one of the events of last December. The subscription streaming platform (SVoD) launched its highly anticipated The Witcher series. Expected at the turn by the many fans of the eponymous video games (and novels, of course), it had, it seems, managed to satisfy the majority.
Without really shining, the peregrinations of Geralt de Riv (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), Ciri (Freya Allan) can be seen very well. In short, we enjoyed the trip and can’t wait to see the rest.
Precisely, season 2 begins to talk about her and Netflix does not hesitate to tease. The opportunity for us to take stock of what we already know about The Witcher’s return.
What release date?
Nothing official about it for the moment, the vagueness remains. If we are to believe the official Twitter account of the show, filming resumed at the end of the summer.
However, the Covid-19 pandemic has once again forced the show’s leading minds to reconsider their plans. As Variety reports, four members of the technical team have tested positive for the virus.
As a result, the series was once again forced to stop production, pending the results of other tests carried out and the end of the use quarantine.
Given his current advancement, we shouldn’t expect to see Geralt de Riv on our screens again until the middle (or end) of 2021, at best.
The synopsis of season 2:
The epilogue of the first season had left many questions unanswered. Where will the journey of Geralt and Ciri (now reunited) lead them? What happened to Yennefer? Is she dead or alive? What will be the outcome of the current war?
While waiting to provide all the answers to these questions, the first clues emerge. Latest: confirmation of Yennefer’s return on Twitter. For now, no trailer has been posted. Count on us to let you know when this is the case.
- Otherwise, here’s the official Netflix rundown:
Convinced of Yennefer’s death during the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia takes Princess Ciri to the safest place he knows, Kaer Morhen’s childhood home. As the kings of the Continent, elves, humans, and demons fight for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the young girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses within her.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, showrunner of the series, responded to the concern of some fans on Twitter. The latter strongly hoped that a distinctive feature of Geralt de Riv, important in the novels, would not be forgotten in the rest of the series.
It is about the “handicap” of the witcher, a severe wound received in the book “The Time of Contempt”. He has fairly severe consequences and has to accept being less agile than before. No worries, however, he remains an outstanding fighter.
“Thank you for your efforts in bringing out the details of the novels. I have read these books a dozen times, and I admit that for me, Geralt seemed to be in pain a little, but no more. I was wrong, but I am delighted to explore this new side of our hero.” Laurent Schmidt Hissrich said on Twitter. Good news for aficionados of the universe imagined by Andrzej Sapkowski.
How many episodes in season 2?
No surprise here. There were eight in the first season, there will be eight in the second. And if the sequel to The Witcher has fun with the timeline of its plot as it did with its debut, it promises to be difficult to follow again. It will be necessary to hang on, or to learn about the novels of Andrzej Sapkowski.
Filming takes place in the UK and several countries in Eastern Europe as well.
A first look at season 2:
In a video uploaded for Halloween, we find Geralt of Rivia and most of the monsters he faced in the first season. But that’s not all. Two unknown creatures are also in the game. A hideous bug and another enemy make a fleeting appearance in the middle of the merry band (around 15 and 30 seconds of said clip).
This is already enough to wait (a little) before the posting of a first trailer.
Who is in charge?
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, already showrunner from the previous season, remains in charge of her sequel. Known for having worked on Daredevil or The Defenders, she surrounded herself with several directors to put season 2 in a box.
Otherwise, a spin-off and an animated film based on the world of the Witcher are also in the works. Netflix, therefore, relies heavily on the universe imagined by Andrzej Sapkowski.
The cast of season 2:
In this season, there will be many stars. It includes Henry Cavill as Geralt of Riv, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anja Chalotra as Yennefer, Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold, Joey Batey as Jaskier, Carmel Laniado as Violet, Kim Bodnia & Basil Eidenbenz as a new witcher, and Alastair Parker will still play as an unknown character.
This is probably only a sample of the actors who will play in the second season. For now, we do not have more information on the other heads who join the cast.
A page of the unveiled scenario:
This excerpt from the script for the new season does not teach us much concrete. Unknown figures – a merchant, his wife, and daughter – walk at night. Suddenly, he is eaten by a monster, his wife too. The only survivor of the massacre, their daughter fled. It is Geralt himself who narrates this mysterious scene.
