Witcher season 2 promo clip shows off new weapon and monster

When you’re a Witcher, not everyone or everything is going to be happy to see you. Especially if it’s a monster. Netflix has released a new preview clip from The Witcher season 2, but Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivera has little to be thankful for in this scene. Geralt may be one of the best monster hunters on the Continent, but even he can be outmatched from time to time. And in this case, not even magical weapons are enough to put down this beast.

New monsters await. Are you ready? ⚔️

Meet. The. Myriapod. #TheWitcher Season 2. December 17.

As stated in the tweet above, Geralt’s foe is a Myriapod, a particularly nasty human-sized insect. The Myriapods were introduced in Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher novels, so it was inevitable that they would make their way to the show. But if this insect is anything like its counterparts in the real world, it may mean that several Myriapods are lurking nearby. Luckily, Geralt does have some magic at his disposal. In this clip, Geralt uses a Quen sign as a magic shield, as well as a seemingly magic sword. Unfortunately, the Myriapod is not impressed.

Season 2 of The Witcher will differ from the first in that Geralt has found a new purpose: Protecting Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) from the forces of Nilfgaardian, as well as from the vast, uncontrollable power within the princess herself. That’s why Geralt is bringing Ciri to Kaer Morhen, the stronghold where he was trained to become a Witcher. Meanwhile, Geralt’s lost love, Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), languishes as a captive of Nilfgaardian … and Geralt doesn’t even know she’s still alive. But Yennefer is far from helpless, and she may have to free herself from captivity.

Joey Batey also stars in the series as the bard,Jaskier, who penned the viral song “Toss a Coin To Your Witcher.” Some of the new cast additions for season 2 include Mecia Simson as the elven sorceress, Francesca Findabair; Kim Bodnia as Geralt’s mentor, Vesemir; Paul Bullion as a Witcher named Lambert; and Chris Fulton as Rience, an evil mage who is hunting down Ciri on behalf of Nilfgaardian.

All eight episodes of The Witcher‘s second season will make their Netflix debut on December 17.

Netflix is testing out new charges for sharing passwords

If you've ever shared your Netflix password with anyone outside of your household, then there's a high probability that Netflix knows about it. And while Netflix has yet to ban the practice, the streaming service is taking new steps to monetize it. Via Netflix's official blog, Chengyi Long, the streaming service's product innovation director, announced that the company is testing out plans to charge an extra fee to accounts that share their passwords.

For now, the options are only being tested in three countries: Costa Rica, Peru, and Chile. The good news is that the early version of the fee comes in at under $3 in all three countries. However, Netflix will evaluate the results before determining whether to raise the fee or if the practice will be brought to America.

Ruth is out for revenge in Ozark season 4, part 2 teaser
Julia Garner in Ozark.

For most of its critically acclaimed run, Netflix's Ozark has focused on Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) as they found themselves pulled deeper and deeper into the criminal underworld. But in the first look at Ozark's final episodes, Julia Garner's Ruth Langmore takes the spotlight away from the Byrde family. In the first part of Ozark season 4, Ruth vowed to get her revenge on would-be drug lord Javier "Javi" Elizondro (Alfonso Herrera). She may get what she wants, but there's no guarantee that she will make it out alive.

Netflix has dropped the first teaser trailer for Ozark season 4, part 2, which is narrated by Ruth, who shares her belief that her family is cursed. The Langmores are a criminal family, and Ruth doesn't pretend that they're innocent, or even that she is. Ruth has actively taken part in the family business. But after Javier murdered her cousin, Wyatt Langmore (Charlie Tahan), and her business partner, Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery), Ruth told the Byrdes that they would have to kill her to stop her from avenging her loss.
