Season 2 of The Witcher is still three months away – but on Saturday at the online-only TUDUM event, Henry Cavill and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich gave us two clips from the highly anticipated second season. In The Witcher season 2, the main character Geralt of Rivia (Cavill) returns to his childhood home Kaer Morhen where he believes the young Crown Princess of Cintra, Ciri (Freya Allan) will be safer. The two new clips for Season 2 of The Witcher feature them both. Like the first season, The Witcher season 2 will have a total of eight one-hour episodes.
“When I talk about The Witcher, I always talk about how these three characters come together – Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer – they come together as a family,” Hissrich said of Season 2 last year. “This is the most important part of the series for me. And when you start to imagine someone’s family, you also have to understand their family of origin. For Geralt, it’s his brothers, it’s the brotherhood of witers. So I’m very happy to come back and meet for the first time Vesemir, his father figure, and all these men he has grown up with since he was seven years old.
