Update on ‘The Witcher’ Season 2 Trailer, Shows Henry Cavill’s Geralt in the New Teaser
Netflix has released a new “The Witcher” season 2 teaser video, which shows the main protagonist Henry Cavill as, Geralt of Rivia, for the first time. The series is based on the same-named novel by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and follows Geralt as he journeys over the medieval continent known as The Continent, fighting otherworldly opponents. CD Projekt Red‘s critically acclaimed video game series based on the novels initially brought the property to the attention of American consumers in the late 2000s.
After a lukewarm response to the novel’s film and TV adaptations in Poland, Netflix began work on a new Witcher as a movie before an executive at the streaming company pushed for a series instead. With Cavill’s addition in late 2018, the show debuted to positive reviews and high viewership in late 2019, soon securing a season 2 order as well as the animated spin-off feature “Nightmare of the Wolf” and the live-action prequel limited series “Blood Origin” for Netflix.
Despite being impeded by Cavill’s on-set injury and COVID-19-related production delays, the following episode was finally completed in April, and the streaming platform is ramping up anticipation for its release. The series follows a spectacular cast of talented actors like Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Joey Batey, and many more.
Netflix has released a new The Witcher season 2 teaser trailer, after the announcement of a unique virtual convention co-hosted with CD Projekt Red. The first sight at Cavill’s Geralt is hidden behind cryptic flashes of the dangers to come for the character.

Plot details about what to expect from the second chapter are still being kept under wraps, However, Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has already indicated that the many characters will have more interactions with one another than the nonlinear storytelling season 1 featured.
