Together, they will always form the top trio of this fiction. Also, the spectators will likely find MyAnna Buring (the rector Tissaia de Vries), Mimi Ndiwen I (the vile Fringilla), or even Joey Batey (the minstrel Jaskier) in this new series of episodes. But new protagonists will be added to the cast of this second season …

Like Kristofer Hivju, famous Tormund in the cult series Game of Thrones. The Norwegian actor and first cousin of Isabelle Nanty (yes, yes!) Should play Nivellen, a cursed human, half-man, half-monster with the head of a bear, who will inevitably cross the path of the Witcher.

In mid-December 2020, the shooting had to continue without Henry Cavill, forced to take a forced break after a “minor injury to the muscles of the leg”. The actor then had to rest a few days before returning to filming.

The Witcher, season 2 – Intrigue

Where did Yennefer go? Now that Geralt has found Ciri, how will their relationship evolve? Will he succeed in protecting her? Will the Nilfgaard Empire conquer all the northern kingdoms? So many questions that remain unanswered after watching the entire first season. The sequel should pick up where the plot left off … The first season retraced the events of the two prequel novels The Sorcerer and The Sword of Providence, which is in a way an introduction to the original story. by The Witcher. It had to be to introduce the characters. Season 2 should cover the first official books of the saga, The Blood of the Elves and The Time of Contempt. If you don’t have the patience to wait, you know what you have to do … read the books, just to be patient before the series. And if you’ve struggled to understand the complex timeline of Season 1, already know that it will be the same in Season 2. Actor Joey Batey (who plays Jaskier) has stated that the next episodes will be spread out ” at different times, in different years “. Much like the first season, however, the writer has promised that this timeline will be less confusing and more understandable.

During a podcast, series creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich spoke more about Yennefer and Geralt’s romantic future. A future that will not be happy because of their unusually long lives. “ Time is a very different thing for [them], so [they] aren’t going to get married, settle down, and have children. They have short periods of sex or … flirting, and they can. sort of come back to visit each other, but by the time they meet, one of them might be dead. What I like to imagine is that Yennefer and Geralt are both used to doing things a certain way; they’re both lifelong bachelors of sorts, “the designer began to explain. Even in the books, I don’t know if there is a “happy ending” for them. It is such a sweet dream, but so unrealistic. These people will never be sheep farmers. They both have this kind of desire to live on the edge of life and death. ”

On December 22, 2020, Netflix unveiled the first page of the script for episode 1 of season 2. It will echo the 1st episode of season 1 since Geralt will, from the outset, fight against a monster who has attacked a merchant family … The scenario does not say if Geralt makes it out alive … but he likely does!
