The gifts keep on coming for “The Witcher” fans today, as not long after Netflix revealed the show’s Season 2 premiere date out of WitcherCony, the streaming service dropped the first teaser for the second season of the Henry Cavill-led series as well.
Watch the teaser for “The Witcher” Season 2 via the video above.
In the clip, you’ll see Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) and Geralt (Cavill), finally together after first meeting at the very end of Season 1, and Ciri asking the witcher if she is his “destiny,” to which he replies, she’s “much more” than that. Geralt then takes Ciri with him to meet his witcher brothers at Kaer Morhen, and begins to teach her how to run, how to hide, and how to fight monsters. Although that last one is something he seems very reluctant to be doing.
If you were hoping for Yennefer content (Anya Chalotra), you’re in luck, but you’ll have to settle for just a glimpse at the very end of “The Witcher” Season 2 teaser.
Here’s the official description for Season 2 of “The Witcher,” which will finally premiere Dec. 17, two years after Season 1 debuted on Netflix: Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla 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, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
