The Witcher Season 2 debut amid the holiday season has an oddly reassuring feel to it. Maybe it’s because the next season of the live-action fantasy series arrives almost two years after the series’ first season aired on Netflix. Perhaps it’s because we spend this season visiting snow-capped mountains and icy-cold regions, in line with the wintry season.
Maybe it’s because TV viewers desire a high-quality show that’s both intriguing and entertaining to watch over the winter months – at least in the Northern hemisphere. And boy, does ‘Season 2 of The Witcher’ suit the description.
Not only does the second season in Netflix’s adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s literary works outperform the first, but it’s also a fascinating sequel that presents a magical, action-packed drama that will please and amaze fans.
The Witcher Season 2 Trailer Netflix
In late October, the final trailer for ‘The Witcher Season 2’ debuted online giving us a rare glimpse about the next part of the show and it also reveals some noteworthy spoilers for their viewers. The fascinating trailer of the season blows off the mind of the fans by showing extraordinary scenes of magic, murder, and monsters, as well as magnificent panoramas of the Continent and terrifying omens regarding Ciri’s power.
The Witcher Season 2 Expected Plot
The series features ‘Geralt of Rivia’ who portrays the character of a Witcher and meets various people on his voyage. All the characters in the series are somehow based on the books and game series. As the series progresses, Geralt becomes a father figure to Princess Ciri of Cintra.
The much-awaited return of ‘The Witcher Season 2’ which is full of magic and monsters is going to be interesting for the people who are desperately waiting for this show from the past two years because after watching the trailer of 2nd season of this show, we can say that the upcoming season will surely be started where the first left off and it will also dive back into its mythology.
Also, the entire creative team including Schmidt Hissrich do an excellent job of dropping hints of exposition of the upcoming season through the trailer as you follow Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri on their latest journey. It is expected that the storyline of the 2nd season of ‘The Witcher’ will be more linear and work well for the series.
The season’s more convoluted plot becomes more understandable. The numerous story strands feel like a shared tale instead of individual stories with little in common beyond their setting. The characters’ arcs unfold more or less in tandem (rather than in different timelines).
The star cast includes Henry, Anya, and Freya in the characters of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri respectively. It will be great to watch the return of Joey Batey’s character as Joyous Bard Jaskier and Eamon Farren’s character as Nilfgaardian Army Leader Cahir in this upcoming season of ‘The Witcher’.
The other characters including the master Tissa, Triss, Istredd, Fringilla, and Vilgefortz are played by MyAnna Buring, Anna Shaffer, Royce Pierson, Mimî M. Khayisa, and Mahesh Jadu respectively. The elf child who became the friend of Ciri in the last season which was played by Dara also returns in this upcoming season.
The debutant stars in this season are Adjoa Andoh who will be going to play the role of a Priestess Mother Nenneke and Kristofer Hivju who will be playing the role of Geralt’s old friend Nivelles.
Storyline of The Witcher Season 2
In this upcoming season of ‘The Witcher’, the most chaotic feeling for fans is that there will be more witchers other than Geralt. The main role of Geralt in this season is to protect his daughter Ciri from every evil at any cost. Therefore, he takes his daughter Ciri to Kaer Morhen where he grew up and learned a few things as a child. When the story scales up, he will be going to meet his old tutor Vesemir who reared and taught special skills to him so that he would become a deadly weapon for his enemies.
It will be interesting to watch the climactic battle between Henry Cavill and Sodden Hill in the second story arc of ‘The Witcher Season 2’. Also, you will be fascinated watching various amazing scenes like when Geralt and Ciri find themselves in the training grounds and winter sanctuary of Kaer Morhen where they explore the latter’s bizarre, spiritual roots as well as the past of the witchers themselves.
However, season 2 of ‘The Witcher’ finds time to challenge Geralt against a variety of terrible creatures within all of the political drama and historical deep dives.

The Witcher Season 2 Review
Unencumbered by fans’ expectations for a live-action Witcher TV show, the latest season in Netflix’s adaptation is meatier than its predecessor, demonstrating the show runner’s and producers’ newfound confidence in taking the series in directions they may not have had the courage to explore previously.
Season 1 isn’t flawless – some character decisions are irrational, and there’s clunkiness to several sequences when more story explanations are needed – but it’s a vast improvement over the previous seasons.

Strange as it may sound, The Witcher 2 feels like a coming-of-age story for its primary triad of Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer, and, clichéd as it may sound, season 2 is also about the adoptive family that we form along our paths. With the Christmas season approaching, a time when we’re all thinking about our families and friends, ‘The Witcher’ season two’s central theme feels particularly appropriate – and that’s reassuring.
The Witcher season 2 will premiere exclusively on Netflix on Friday, 17 December, 2021.
