The Witcher is back! Netflix has just posted the first teaser for season 2 of the series online. This first extract focuses on Ciri, the young protégé of Géralt de Riv (Henri Cavill). In the process, the streaming giant announced the holding of an event dedicated to the world of the Witcher, the WitcherCon.
As part of Geeked Week, a series of online events aimed at tailor-made “geek” franchise projects, Netflix has lifted the veil on a handful of trailers. The number 1 of the VOD has notably revealed the trailer for the animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
Soon after, Netflix unveiled the first teaser for Season 2 of The Witcher. This first clip is made up of a quick sequence of short sequences. It is focused on Ciri played by Freya Allan. Between season 1 and season 2, the right of surprise of Géralt de Riv has visibly transformed into a real warrior.
Netflix announces WitcherCon July 9-10, 2021
Mirroring his training at Kaer Morhen, the fortress of the witers, in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the young woman has devoted herself to the art of the witers. The official account of the series has also teased: “Fate awaits the Lion Cub from Cintra in season 2”. For its part, the Twitter account of Netflix France specifies: “She will no longer be lost in the woods”. We can therefore expect that Ciri will occupy an even more important place in this second round of episodes.
In parallel, Netflix announced the holding ofan event dedicated to the universe of Géralt de Riv in partnership with CD Projekt Red, the studio that develops the licensed games. The two companies meet the fans July 9 and 10, 2021 as part of WitcherCon.
We hope that Netflix will take advantage of the event to lift the veil on the broadcast date of season 2 of the series. For now, we just know that season 2 will be available in the Netflix catalog before the end of the current year. The platform is expected to air this second season sometime in December, as was the case for season 1.
