Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2 is currently in production. Back in March – due to the global epidemic – the producers shut down the shooting of the show, which takes place in the United Kingdom.
We now have the Season 2 logline, which reads as the following: “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.”
According to the logline, it seems the show will continue exactly where the first season ended. Meaning this season will be much more linear, as are the books from this point forward. This will probably make some people happy, since the timeline of the first season brought confusion to many viewers.
Netflix recently published two new photos of Geralt of Rivia, the White Wolf. Of course, they also published a new photo of Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon, Ciri for short. Both Geralt and Ciri look badass in the pictures, as they should.
The first two photos feature Henry Cavill as Geralt, wearing his brand new armor. The black leather armor looks awesome. However, it also looks a bit fresh forged. Hopefully they will make it look more weathered. Also, how exactly did Geralt managed to get the orens to purchase such an armor? I’m guessing the “Toss a coin to your Witcher” album is selling well in the Northern Kingdoms!
Lastly, in the final photo we can see Ciri holding a sword in a snowy background. I’m guessing she is probably training in Kaer Morhen with Geralt, and the rest of the witchers. This a very important part of Ciri’s story, since her witcher training will play a vital role in her future. Let’s hope this season will make better use of the source material, and stay true to the Witcher lore.
You can see the photos of Geralt and Ciri below.
