Within the original story, Geralt (Henry Cavill) encounters a former bandit named Nivellen. Because of his past crimes, Nivellen was cursed with the appearance of a beast. However, there is a cure for Nivellen’s condition. Unfortunately, he can’t remember what it was.
Ciri (Freya Allan) wasn’t present in the original short story. Regardless, she will be written into the show’s adaptation of the tale. The story will take place as Geralt escorts Ciri to Kaer Morhen. That’s where Geralt was trained as a Witcher, and he believes that they will be safe there. Additionally, Geralt hopes to train Ciri how to control her powers.
The Witcher season 2 will hit Netflix on December 17.
