A new trailer for season two of Netflix’s The Witcher has been released, teasing monsters, monsters, and even more monsters.
Picking up where season one left off, the trailer shows Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia head to his childhood home of Kaer Morhen with Princess Cirilla.
But, of course, things won’t be easy and monsters are abound, with Nivellen warning Geralt that the “end of days” could be near.
However there’s someone who could help, as the trailer ends with the return of Jaskier, who appears to have made friends with some rats.
Meanwhile, last month, Cavill shared that we can expect to see a change in Geralt this season.
The actor explained to Entertainment Weekly that he tried to “bring [out] more of that intellectual, philosophical, wise Geralt” in season two as opposed to the “grumpy, dark, mysterious hero” that we saw in the first season.
“I really wanted to avoid him being too one tunnel,” he said.
“Even though he may be dark and mysterious at times, I wanted him to come across as this incredible character that [The Witcher series author Andrzej Sapkowski] wrote.”
Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich also recently shared a teaser about the opening of season two, revealing that the show has adapted the short story A Grain of Truth.
“It’s a story of a father and daughter coming together in a place that doesn’t quite feel safe for them – and of course, we really get into Nivellen who’s played by the incomparable Kristofer Hivju, and we get to explore his character and his backstory with Geralt as well,” she said in a Twitter video.
The Witcher season 1 is now streaming worldwide on Netflix. Season 2 will premiere on December 17, 2021.
