The Netflix Fantasy drama series The Witcher had its first season in 2019. And, the series which turned out to be a somewhat perfect of fantasy, mystery, and adventure will have a second season. Netflix has confirmed season 2 of The Witcher.
The series mainly revolves around three characters, Geralt Of Rivea (Henry Cavill), Princess Cirilla of Cintra (Freya Allan), and Yennifer of Vegerberg (Anya Chalotra). But the primary character who happens to be in the bulk of the series is Geralt.
The series is told in different timelines in somewhat random order. We only get the flow towards the end of the series. Princess Cirilla is forced to leave her family and Kingdom when they are attacked. And she is told to find Geralt, seemingly he is her destiny. Geralt’s and Ciri’s destinies are intertwined in a way that each seeks out the other.
Yennifer is a sorceress who is quite ambitious and crosses paths with Geralt. Meanwhile, The Kingdom Of Nilfgard seeks to conquer the rest of the continent using their might and dark magic.
These events make up the plot of the first season. The Witcher came out to be extremely successful. Even though it didn’t satisfy the critics much, the reception from viewers was excellent. It had around 76 million views within a month of its release. They lauded the series for its storyline, making, and cast performances. And it turned out quite well for Netflix.
For a huge section of fans who were looking for a next after the end of Game Of Thrones, Witcher seemed to be the perfect answer. It also fulfilled Netflix’s need for a franchise. Even though they had some excellent productions such as The Last Kingdom, Stranger things, and many more, none seemed fit enough to fill the void GoT left out. But, Witcher offers a promising answer to their search.
Netflix had announced the renewal of the series even before its season 1 release. So, The shooting was set to commence at the beginning of 2020. But due to the recent global crisis, it’s been postponed. So, the expected release date will also move further than the beginning of 2021. The fans are keeping their expectations high for the next season. And, a lot of questions remain unanswered.
What will be Geralt’s and Ciri’s fate now as they have found each other? What is the mystery surrounding Ciri and why does Nilfgard seek her out? Where has Yennifer disappeared off to after letting off her chaos? Will Nilfgard’s conquest be stopped? The fans will be hoping to get the answers to all these questions. And they will need some that will really exceed their expectations. So, It’s only then can we even consider it worthy to be even compared with the legendary Game of Thrones.
