Netflix's 'The Witcher' Shares First Look At Ciri In Action For Season 2

Netflix has shared a first official look at Freya Allan as Ciri in season two of The Witcher, and it's safe to say she's ready for action. The new images appeared on the official Witcher Twitter account, apparently teasing Ciri's training at Kaer Morhen, the ancestral home of the Witchers.

Anyone who's played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will of course be aware that Ciri ultimately trained under Geralt and Vesemir to become a monster hunter and all-round badass in her own right. While this was only ever alluded to in flashbacks in the games, the original Andrzej Sapkowski novels on which the Netflix show is based explore this chapter of Ciri's life in much greater detail.

Take a look at Ciri rocking the middle of a training session below. She already looks much more capable than the understandably terrified and confused princess from season one, that's for sure.

Yesterday we got a first-look at Henry Cavill decked out in his finest armour as Geralt Of Rivia ahead of season two. Today's tweet also teased that destiny may bring us something new tomorrow, which suggests to me that we'll be getting a look at whatever sweet new style Yennefer has decided to embrace. Probably something in black.

Previous reports confirmed that The Witcher's second season will focus much more on the relationship between Geralt and Ciri, which I'm fully here for. In an interview with TV Guide, showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich promised that there'll be plenty of material exploring the first few days of Geralt and Ciri's reunion at the climax of season one, including plenty of original content not seen in the books.

"We found in writing the show that we didn't actually want to skip over those first months of them getting to know each other," the showrunner said. "That's part of the fun, is to take these characters, as you say, who understand that they're each other's destiny -- not really embracing it, but accepting that this is what they need to do to continue walking through The Continent."

Season two of The Witcher is expected to hit Netflix at some point next year, assuming the world doesn't slide further into chaos by then. The fantasy series only recently resumed production a few months back after a COVID-induced hiatus, so who can say when Geralt and the gang will return? As long as the cast and crew can get back to work safely, that's all that matters - we'll wait as long as we need to, right?
