Last week a teaser featuring our first look at Ciri in Season 2 was also released during Netflix’s Geeked Week, along with the news that Netflix and CD PROJEKT RED will be hosting a WitcherCon event next month. On July 9, the global virtual celebration of the popular franchise will be streamed on Netflix’s and CD PROJEKT RED’s YouTube and Twitch channels and will be available for co-streaming.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Princess Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia, and Joey Batey as Jaskier.
Season 2 will introduce a handful of new characters portrayed by Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones), Kim Bodnia (Killing Eve), Paul Bullion (Peaky Blinders), Yasen Atour (Young Wallender), Agnes Bjorn, Basil Eidenbenz (Fast and Furious 9), Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl), Mecia Simson (Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model) and more.
The Witcher series is based on the stories and novels by Andrzej Sapkowski. Creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich serves as executive producer and showrunner for The Witcher. Sean Daniel executive produces under his Sean Daniel Company with his partner Jason Brown. Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko of Platige Image also executive produce.
The series is scheduled to make its return sometime this year.
