The Witcher‘s Geralt of Rivia is not fazed by talk of the possible “end of days.” “I’ve lived through three supposed end of days,” says Geralt. “It’s all horses**t.”
Netflix surprised fans by dropping the anticipated main trailer for Season 2 of The Witcher today at the Lucca Comics & Games Convention in Italy. The show’s panel included Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, cast members Joey Batey (Jaskier) and Kim Bodnia (Vesemir), Production Designer Andrew Laws and Costume Designer Lucinda Wright.
The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as the grim Geralt of Rivia, the bane of supernatural beasties, in a story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
Season 2 will follow Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia who, convinced that Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) died at the gruesome Battle of Sodden, seeks to bring Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) 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, Geralt must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
The Witcher Season 2 is set to premiere December 17, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich serves as executive producer and showrunner. Tomek Baginski, Jason F. Brown, Sean Daniel, Mike Ostrowski, Steve Gaub and Jarosław Sawko also executive produce.
Watch the trailer above.
