Netflix announced its plans to release its second season of The Witcher. This show is based on a series of novels and short stories written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, which have been adapted into a video game franchise as well as a TV show. In the first season, protagonist Geralt investigates the murder of King Foltest’s only daughter while searching for his lost love Yennefer. He becomes entangled in both local politics and international intrigue amid tensions between races that threaten war.
The upcoming second season will largely take place in the duchy of Toussaint on the continent’s southern edge, where Geralt has been living since he became involved at Kaer Morhen with an organization of mages called the School of Sorceresses and Witchery.
Geralt is a witcher, meaning he was trained from an early age to hunt down deadly monsters in exchange for their removal without any risk to nearby communities. The series follows his life as one member of this profession who still has yet been able to find peace with himself or those around him.
This fantasy drama is set to be a Netflix original, so there won’t be any commercial breaks and the episodes are all going to be released at once. In addition, it will also star Henry Cavill as protagonist Geralt of Rivia. The series didn’t start with an easy ride into production either; the first season was originally supposed to have six episodes. Due to tax incentives being pulled from Poland by the government, this led them to run out of funds for filming more than one episode per month. With that said, we can now expect ten episodes in total!
Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill): He’s been living alone on his own terms since he became a witcher. The rigors of his trade and the emotional and physical scars from past battles have made him hesitate to take on any new meaning in life. But when he hears that Ciri has been seen for the first time since her disappearance nearly two years ago it sets in motion an explosive chain of events that leads Geralt to undertake one last huge quest -a journey which will finally reveal all there is to know about who GERALT OF RIVIA really is
Ciri (Freya Allan): she’s not just looking for power anymore; after being told by Emhyr var Emreis that she could never become an empress through conventional means, we find out why this might be important. Later, Ciri is seen coming into conflict with other characters for the first time, showing off her newly realized power
Emhyr var Emreis (Roman Madyanov): The emperor of Nilfgaard’s army had been looking all over to find a worthy heir and potential empress. After he was told that Ciri might not be eligible through conventional means, we see him do everything in his power to woo Geralt and get him on board
Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) & Triss Merigold (Katarzyna Adamczyk): While trying to decide what they’re going to do next, Yennefer suggests she should go back home as this is no longer their battle. She also tells Triss that she wants to see her and follow up on the news about Ciri.
Ciri (Freya Allan): The youngest Witcher, who has yet to come into full power, is seen coming into conflict with other characters for the first time, showing off her newly realized power. She’s also being hunted by a group of enemy soldiers, but it looks like some people are trying to protect her from those men.
The cast includes:
Ciri (played by Freya Allan), Geralt’s protege; Yennefer (Anya Chalotra); Triss Merigold (Anna Shaffer); Istredd/Rience/Shilard Quarts Lowenhielm (Adam Levy); East Tuirseach aka “Get Junio’s” (Ivan Mok); King Foltest of Temeria aka “King Poldark the Peaceful” (Jared Joseph); Queen Calanthe of Cintra and widow to former king Vizimir II (Birgitte Hjort Sorensen); Princess Adda, daughter or Berengaria of Maribor; Princess Renfro/Cirilla Fiona Elene Emerencia Vigo–Fraga aka “Queen Eithne” (Mimi Ndiweni).
