Fans are very excited about the release of The Witcher Season 2 trailer. The show is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s series of fantasy books. Henry Cavill, as Geralt of Rivia, is accompanied by co-stars- Freya Allen (Princess Ciri), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer of Vengerberg), Eamon Farren ( Cahir, a protective soldier), and a lot of fantastic performers. The show was top-rated when it started streaming on Netflix on 20th December 2019.
Season 2 is set to be broadcast on Netflix on 17th December 2021. Plans for Season 3 and several spin-offs are also already on the way. Here are a few details only the most ardent of fans would have been able to see and understand from the first glimpse of the trailer:
Rience: At the 1.18-minute mark, we see a mage with a scarred face wielding a powerful fire spell and looks to be a powerful wizard. Chris Fulton plays the role of Rience, who is nasty and not to be messed with at all.
The Beast: At the beginning of the trailer, we hear a strange voice. It predicts the “end of days” due to the sighting of sure signs that are omens. Geralt is talking to a beast-like creature – a boar-like man with tusks and covered with hair. Kristofer Hivju (Game Of Thrones) plays Nivellen. Here he is under a curse that has changed his appearance, like the Beauty and The Beast. He was seen in the short story- A Grain Of Truth from The Last Wish.
Bruxa: In one of the first fight scenes in the trailer for Season 2, Geralt is fighting a woman. She emits a superhuman scream during the fight. She is a Bruxa, a type of Vampire known for using its piercing screams to fight enemies. Since Nivellen is also in the trailer, we assume that the Bruxa is none other than Vereena. Unfortunately, Vereena can also take the form of a giant bat which makes her an even more dangerous opponent for Geralt.
Francesca Findabair: Season 1 had skimmed over the elves living in the world of The Witcher. The episode” Four Marks” revealed that the race of elves went into hiding due to the human genocide against their race. The Witcher Season 2 trailer shows a beautiful elf- Francesca Findabair (Mecia Simson). She is the queen Of the Elves and a powerful mage.
Nenneke: An Introduction:- There are many powerful women in the world of The Witcher. In Season 2, we see Nenneke. She is the Priestess of Melitele. She has helped and healed Geralt in the past. But, judging by her words to Geralt, she is aware of the dangers that await Ciri.
Kaer Morhen, the legendary keep of The Witchers, seems central to Season 2. We get several glimpses of the grounds and surrounding areas of Kaer Morhen in the trailer. In addition, we see the iconic Medallion Tree, which holds many medallions that belong to The Witchers who have died. It honors their deaths and their sacrifices.
Ciri, Geralt, and The Evil Demon Tree: The Witcher Season 2 highlights Ciri’s training in Kaer Morhen as she must learn how to fight. About 2 minutes into the trailer, we see Geralt and Ciri fighting a wicked tree monster. It is a leshy (a havoc-wrecking forest demon). It can shapeshift and is a formidable foe.
Yennefer: At the end of The Witcher Season 1, Fringilla Vigo (Mimi Ndiwendi), a sorceress from Nilfgaard, attacks Yennefer. In the Season 2 trailer, we see her as a prisoner, chained alongside other prisoners.
