“The Witcher” Season 2 Trailer Reveals Geralt & Ciri’s Quest

If you’re a fan of Netflix’s The Witcher, the last few days have been filled with some exciting news. First, there was the scoop that the prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin had cast the great Michelle Yeoh. Then there was the nearly three-hour WitcherCon event celebrating the show, with cast members dishing on their characters and more. Finally, on Friday, the flagship series dropped a teaser trailer for season two. In case you missed the latter, we’ve got you covered.

The teaser reveals not only our first good glimpse of the upcoming season but also the release date. While one of the best parts about season one was Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer, the teaser is focused on the quest that Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivera and Freya Allan’s Ciri are embarking upon. In season one, Geralt and Ciri were on a collision course towards one another, their destinies intertwined. Now that they’re finally together, season two will see the two of them taking on monsters (and men) side-by-side.

Meanwhile, the increasingly powerful Yennefer ended season one by sacrificing everything to help win the battle of Sodden. Her journey in season two will be interesting, and will likely be as arduous as her arc was in attaining all that power in the first place.

Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:

Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans, and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: The mysterious power she possesses inside.

Check out the teaser below. The Witcher season two bows on Netflix on December 17.
