Le riprese della seconda stagione di The Witcher sono terminate e Netflix inizia a promuovere il contenuto su tutti i suoi canali: la saga, ispirata ai romanzi fantasy scritti da Andrzej Sapkowski, continua. The new episodes will again see Henry Cavill in the role of the protagonist Geralt of Rivia.

The first season of the series landed on Netflix in 2019 and immediately amassed a record number of views, becoming one of the most viewed content in the world. The audience got to know the monster hunter, Geralt, his enemies and allies. After about a year of blockages caused by Covid-19 the new episodes are about to be released. The streaming platform has announced several previews related to the character Geralt of Rivia. They are few and fragmented, but enough to understand that, at the center of the story, there will be a strong bond between him and Ciri, the princess played by Freya Allan. Lovers of fantasy series are warned: the new episodes will be intense and full of twists and turns.

The Witcher 2: important plot previews

Geralt will be tormented and surrounded by dangers: Netflix has hinted at this, although the previews are rather cryptic and fragmented. He will be called to a new mission, which will involve Princess Ciri. The platform anticipates that the character will have grown in the second season and that he will have to better understand what his destiny is. In the meantime, he will have to escape new threats that put his life at risk. Fortunately, Geralt will be there to protect her from any danger.

In short, the plot is shaping up and will see Geralt and Ciri in the role of the two main characters. Alongside them there will be other characters: Vesemir, played by Kim Bodnia, Anya Chalotra, as Yennifer, Joey Batey as Buttercup, MyAnna Buring, as Tissala and many others.

The showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich stated enormous satisfaction with the result:

"I'm so glad that even before fans have seen our first season, we can confirm that we will be back to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri."

When The Witcher 2 comes out

After the stop caused by the Coronavirus, filming of The Witcher 2 did not begin until August 17, 2020, one year after the release of the first season. They ended in April 2021.

Netflix announced that The Witcher 2 will be released between October and December 2021, which is in the last quarter of the year, about two years after its streaming debut. The official release date is still unknown, but according to rumors, the company should communicate it in these weeks. In the meantime, you can still watch the first season of The Witcher on streaming.
