The trailer for the sophomore season of The Witcher had the honor to conclude Netflix’s Tudum event. Fans are counting the days before Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia will return with new adventures on Dec. 17, and now they finally get a taste of what’s next. The new eight episodes will shed new light on the white-haired witcher’s backstory, leading him to the place where he turned into a mutant and deadly warrior, Kaer Morhen (already seen in The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf). Following the events of season 1, Geralt needs a safe place for him and Freya Allan’s Ciri. He will turn to old keep where the School of the Wolf has its headquarters. Here, his young companion can learn to harness her mighty powers under the guidance of Vesemir.
In addition to the new faces joining the Continent in season 2, including more witchers than featured in the freshman season, new adventures and new deadly monsters await Geralt. And, yes, Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer and the wandering warrior have some scores to settle.

The streaming service also debuted a brand new couple of scenes from the upcoming season. The first one features Nivellen, a man cursed with a monstrous appearance of a boar, portrayed by Game of Thrones alum Kristofer Hivju. In the books, Nivellen and the Geralt only meet once, but Cavill’s character refers to him as an “old friend,” hinting that the show might have a different origin for him. You can watch the clip here below.
In the second clip, Geralt is getting ready to face a dangerous bruxa, and he’s urging Ciri to run away as things are about to get messy. Check out the clip here below.
