We’ve been through a wild journey with the Netflix sensation known as ‘The Witcher.’ Season one of the show focused on the exploration of Witchers, their training regime, and how they hunted monsters. The next season is under production, and fans are eagerly waiting for another journey through the world of sorcery, magical creatures, and the clan known as Witchers.
Season two is reported to pay more attention to the life, origin, and bloodline of the “Geralt” played by Henry Cavil. One of the showrunners, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, talked about the fact in an interview with “The Wrap.” She told the news house that the show would focus on other witchers and explore the brotherhood of ‘Gerald.’ the First season only had one other Witcher, Remus, who was killed.
This season focuses more on Geralt’s consequential relations with Ciri and Yeneffer but also taps into the origin of Gerald his brotherhood of witchers, the men he was grown with since he was seven years old, and the Vesemir, which is a mysterious father figure for him. Rumors are that Kim Bodnia may be stepping in for this role.
Another thing that caught a lot of eyes was the revelation that the showrunners listen to the audience. That’s why they’re going to remove the problem of dissipated multiple timelines. However, the show will still feature flashbacks and flashforwards to progress the storyline and have an origin timeline running between the current premises.
According to The Wrap interview, viewers now can explore the hard-fought battles and rigorous training a Witcher has to go through, how they’re ruled out of the mainstream and how the brotherhood stands for each other. A strong possibility is that we’ll get to see multiple witchers running and hunting monsters around.
When it comes to the relationship between Ciri and Geralt, it seems like the show will follow a path of origin from books, and they’re sure to develop a bond. While being forced by consequences, they’ll fight together, learn together, and form a father-daughter like relation.
The first season focused on monsters and the magical world of Nilfgard, and the show makers and the audience, think that it is the right time to balance out the vast experience of sorcerers and their magic with the war tactics and journey of Witchers. It’ll be interesting to see how the young Geralt turns out.
