Netflix’s The Witcher became one of the biggest TV shows last year. The show received largely positive reviews and garnered a massive fan base. It stars Henry Cavill, along with co-stars Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra.
Set in medieval times, the showrunners were initially very skeptical about whether it was going to work on audiences, given how the movies tanked at the box office. But, against all the odds, the show became a hit, especially because the show’s plot was very similar to the films. It, of course, didn’t hurt that we got to watch A WHOLE LOT of Cavill, on-screen.
Anyway, what’s in store for the show now that season 1 is over? Let’s find out:
Witcher Season 1
The first season, based on The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, followed Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia, Allan’s as Cirilla “Ciri” and Chalotra’s Yennefer through their various timelines.
Geralt is a magically enhanced monster-hunter called the “witcher.”
Ciri is the crown princess of Cintra, asked to find the Witcher who is supposed to help her after her grandmother’s death. She also possesses magical powers.
Yennefer is a one-quarter elf and crosses paths with the Witcher on several occasions.
Ciri and the Witcher are apparently linked together by destiny.
Witcher Season 2
The first season took a lot of time leaps. In the end, all our lead characters seem to be in a one-time frame and are going to make their way in this same zone now. So, for those of you, you found the first season a little confusing, good news, it’s gonna be much more simplified.
Witcher Season 2 Cast
The lead characters from the previous season will, of course, return for the next one. Other than the new cast members confirmed till now include Yasen Atour from the Young Wallander, Agnes Bjorn from Monster, Paul Bullion from the Peaky Blinders fame, Thue Posted Rasmussen from F9, Aisha Fabienne Ross from The Danish Girl, Kristofer Hivju from Game of Thrones, and recent graduate Media Simson.
These new members have already been confirmed for the following characters:
Atour as Coen, Bjorn as Vereena, Bullion as Lambert, Rasmussen as Eskel, Aisha as Lydia, Kristofer as Nivellen, and Simson as Francesca.
Witcher Season 2 Release
A second season was announced in November 2019, a month before the show’s release. The release date hasn’t been set yet, though. In fact, it is likely the show will get delayed, considering the production was supposed to begin in early-2020. And we all know the state of affairs right now, given the pandemic.
Still, let’s hope fur it to come out without much delay.
