Netflix released some new footage from season two of The Witcher on Friday.
The content, part of Netflix’s Geeked Week promotion, reveals about 15 seconds of Ciri’s (Freya Allan) journey.
It’s not yet clear if footage of other characters is going to be released as well, but check back on this post later today for any updates.
The company also announced an event called WitcherCon for July 9, and it seems a good bet that a full trailer will be revealed then. The event covers the Netflix series as well as the video game franchise — both based on books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski — and will air on Twitch and YouTube.
The Witcher season two has eight episodes that are expected to air sometime in late 2021. Stars Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer of Vengerberg) and Allan all return along with several new castmembers, including Kristofer Hivju (who played Tormund Giantsbane on Game of Thrones) as Nivellen.
Production on the second season of the Netflix fantasy drama was shut down in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Production resumed in August and then wrapped in April of this year.
After the breakout popularity of the first season in 2019, Netflix has also announced a six-part live-action prequel series titled Blood Origin and starring Jodie Turner-Smith. The prequel tells the story of the first Witcher. An animated movie is also in the works.
