‘The Witcher’ Official Season 2 Trailer Drops And It's Absolutely Amazing

The official trailer for the second season of Netflix’s The Witcher dropped today and, seriously, you could cut the tension with a silver sword. 


It’s been two years since Geralt and Ciri finally found each other following the strife of their separate journeys across the Continent. And, in order to stem the tide of Nilfgaardian soldiers from taking over Sodden Hill, Yennefer unleashed the full extent of her abilities, but disappeared once the dust had settled. 

While we had gotten glimpses at what was in store for these characters in the next season, this new trailer shows off the darkly beautiful world and the stakes of their intertwined fates as both good and evil clash. Take a look! 



We spy Geralt and Nivellen chatting about the end of days at a fireplace, and the monstrous character is in fact played by Kristofer Hivju from Game of Thrones. Moreover, Ciri seems reluctant to train with a sword in what must be Kaer Morhen, but another scene sees her standing tall and looking a lot like the video game version of the character.

Unfortunately, a fireside encounter between Yennefer and Fringilla seems to suggest that the two sorceresses have been taken prisoner by the Nilfgaardian army, in spite of the latter's assistance in the Battle of Sodden Hill. This betrayal might convince Fringilla that she's on the wrong side of the conflict or drive a greater wedge between her and her former allies.

And, of course, the second season is when we will be introduced to Vesemir, the mentor of Geralt. He's played by Kim Bodnia, who you'll likely recognise as Constantin in Killing Eve. "Kim and I were discussing the emotionality of these characters, and Kim brings some powerful emotion to [the role] and a real sense of soul and heart and connection to the wild and connection to nature," said Henry Cavill in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "It's beautiful to watch and beautiful to be a part of. Some of my favorite scenes I got to perform with Kim. He does bring something really special to the character, and I think people are really going to enjoy it."


Aw. That's lovely. As a reminder, The Witcher returns to Netflix on December 17th.
