THE WITCHER Season 2 Still Features Henry Cavill's Geralt Of Rivia Heading Into Action With His Trusty Blade

The pandemic slowed production on The Witcher season 2, but the series is finally set to return to Netflix this December. Now, we have a new look at the show along with comments from Henry Cavill...

When The Witcher finally returns to Netflix on December 17, Geralt of Rivia will be taking on a very different sort of role. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Henry Cavill explained that we'll see the formidable warrior embrace his "paternal side" when he's forced to train his Child of Surprise, Cirilla (played by Freya Allan, she's better known to fans of the video games as Ciri). 

"While he hasn't necessarily been someone who craved children, he does take quite naturally to being a protector," the actor teases. "What I'm trying to do is bring [out] more of that intellectual, philosophical, wise Geralt."

With these comments comes a new still showing Geralt in action. Not a lot has been revealed about this second season of The Witcher, though fans are excited to see where the story goes next, especially after a first season that jumped around the timeline and proved to be hard to follow at times. 

"Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen," reads a synopsis. "While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside."

Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), Freya Allan (Ciri), and Joey Batey (Jaskier) are all set to return for the second season, alongside series newcomers Yasen Atour as the Witcher Coen, Agnes Bjorn as the bruxa Vereena, Paul Bullion as the Witcher Lambert, Thue Ersted Rasmussen as the Witcher Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross as Lydia, Kristofer Hivju as Nivellen, and Mecia Simson as Francesca.
