Netflix - The Witcher Credit
There are lots of good news for The Witcher fans, the huge Netflix hit that premiered in December 2019. The second season of The Witcher will air on December 17, 2021, two years after its debut. It's a Christmas gift for all those who loved it.
Although I enjoyed The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf quite a bit, it was just an anime spinoff and not on the same level as the main series. The Witcher: Blood Origin, the spinoff, has yet to be released. Netflix also confirmed that The Witcher would return for a third season. This is fantastic news.
We have three new trailers for season 2 of Netflix's second season. The renewal announcement is not surprising. The trailers for the first and second seasons give us glimpses at certain scenes, while the third mixes scenes from the first season with scenes from the second in a traditional trailer format.
We see Nivellen in the first trailer. He is another cursed man, similar to Duny, Ciris' father, whom Geralt protects from her grandmother. Although Nivellen looks like a boar, we know that he is not a monster because he can touch the silver knivesknife-throwing being in the center of this scene.
Geralt & Ciri
The next clip shows Geralt taking a potion, and getting all weird looking with his black-hole eyes. This is Ciri's first ever video. He tells Ciri to run while he deals with business. His transformation makes her look quite scared. I believe this is the Cat potion he's quaffed down that grants Witchers night vision.
Road to Season 2 / Vesemir
The final trailer (and the longest) gives us our first glimpse at Geralts teacher Vesemir. Vesemir was the main star of Nightmare of the Wolf. But he's very different in the main series. He is older and has a different accent because he's being played by Kim Bodnia, Killing Eve's star. This trailer has lots of juicy details, but also Season 1 stuff so be sure to pay attention. We also get some glimpses of Yennefer, the cripple-turned-beauty sorceress and Geralts erstwhile lover.
First Look at Blood Origin
Netflix has released a sneak peek at The Witcher: Blood Origin as a bonus. However, it does not contain any footage from the prequel series. That video is available below.
The Witcher Season 2 will be available on Netflix starting December 17th. Check out my review on this blog.
