Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for The Witcher season 2, set to reunite us with Henry Cavill‘s magically-enhanced monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia, as well as the other characters that dwell in the fantastical landmass known as “the Continent.”
Chapter two continues on from where we left off with the s1 finale. Geralt, believing Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) was killed at the Battle of Sodden, takes Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) to the safest place he can think of – his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. Outside Kaer Morhen’s walls, it’s all reaching boiling point among the Continent’s many races, with humans, demons, kings and elves striving for supremacy. But there’s one major thing Geralt – and perhaps the world – needs to look out for: the power Cirilla holds within herself.
Worry? None for Geralt, it appears. “I’ve lived through three supposed end of days,” he tells new tusked character Nivellen (played by Kristofer Hivju, who you may remember as Tormund from Game of Thrones). “It’s all horseshit.”
An exciting trailer below (even with a bit of an overpowering “Monster” track mix), teasing plenty of epic action and monster goodness as the story expands. It’s been a long time between sword swings for this series – close to two years since season 1 dropped. Can’t wait to finally see what lies ahead. The Witcher season 2 will be streaming on Netflix from December 17th.
