The Witcher season 2 trailer: Henry Cavill’s Geralt prepares for war

Right after just about two a long time off the air, The Witcher season 2 is on us— and with new footage to demonstrate it. At the Tudum enthusiast function on Saturday, Netflix debuted a trailer which … was extra of a sizzle reel of season 1 with a several hints of what is to occur. The guarantee: more substantial roles for Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer and Freya Allan’s Ciri, and Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia kicking much more monster butt.

The Witcher, primarily based on the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski (not the CD Projekt Purple recreation, alone an adaptation), previously informed the multi-pronged tale of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri as they traversed the Continent in search of their destinies — or a couple coins. The stories converged in a time-loopy time 1, leaving time 2 to be a more clear-cut adaptation of Sapkowski’s to start with Witcher novel, Blood of Elves. A powering-the-scenes video clip introduced in April verified the direction, with a subsequent teaser trailer suggesting it may finally be time for Ciri to begin her Witcher instruction.

During Tudum, Netflix also premiered two key clips from period 2, both equally involving Geralt. In the initially, the Witcher converses with a monster pal about what he truly desires to tell Ciri:

The second finds Geralt in pure Witcher manner, slurpin’ some elixer and planning for fight.

The core Witcher present is just the suggestion of the iceberg for what Netflix has in retail store for its budding mega-franchise. In August, the streamer premiered The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the first of what animation outfit Studio Mir hopes will be lots of prequel tales instructed in the universe. 2024 will see the arrival of The Witcher: Blood Origin, a miniseries centered on the Conjunction of the Spheres, an party that formed the Continent into the planet Geralt understands. The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who not long ago signed a offer with Netflix to build even far more collection for the streamer, will oversee all the productions. But the flagship collection is every thing — and it’s coming.

The Witcher period 2 premieres on Netflix on Dec. 17. And in superior news, an undated season 3 was formally announced in the course of the occasion, as well.
