The Witcher is a fantasy drama series produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and based on the book by the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher has turned out to be a big blockbuster project on Netflix. It has received a 93% score from Fan reviews. The Witcher is the 2nd most reviewed series on Netflix this year and the second season shooting has been already started.
The Witcher is known as Geralt of Rivia. He was once a human but transformed (mutated) into a superhuman who has the agility to slay Monsters. In the series, The Witcher has to kill many Monster and during his journey, he met a sorcerer Yeneffer, who has half-elf blood and love interest of The Witcher. In this story, the Human race has killed almost all Elves leaving a very few alive.
On the other hand, Cintra queen has insulted Nilfgard king once and as a result of that, they destroyed the whole Cintra and tried to take Crown princess Ciri. But the twist is Ciri is a child of The Witcher as per the “Law of Surprise” rules. She knows from her birth that The Witcher is her Destiny.
Law of Surprise means if anyone saves someone’s life, s/he can ask for anything from him or her in return. This amazing story revolves around Geralt of Rivia, Yeneffer & Ciri who possess a very strong unique power as per some old prophecy. Due to her abilities of mass destruction, Nilfgard wants her at any cost.
There are no updates as such from the makers of the series about when exactly they are going to release the second season. The shooting was already started in the UK and went for 6 weeks before worldwide lockdowns started. Although they can start the shooting again, the director wants to keep it on hold for the safety and security of the crew and cast. So the release of the series may get delayed until the end of 2021.
Our favorite “Superman” played by Henry Cavil, will be in the role of the Geralt of Rivia with his co-cast Freya Allan as the Princess Ciri. By their side, Anya Chalotra will be playing the sorcerer role as Yeneffer. We may see some old cast in season 2 as well. There are also some new members to be seen in season 2.
The astonishing upcoming plot in S2:
Nilfgard has almost finished sorcerers in a face-off fight. But to amazement, Yeneffer is missing. Which makes us curious about what happened to her.
