The Witcher season 2 trailer prepares for destiny and war

Toss a coin to your Witcher, because The Witcher is returning to Netflix after taking a long break between seasons.

Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) is reprising his role as Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher who may be one of the greatest monster hunters on the Continent. And Geralt will have his work cut out for him in the Netflix show’s second season, now that he’s finally united with the fugitive princess, Ciri (Freya Allan). Ciri and Geralt have been linked by destiny since before her birth, and she has vast magical powers beyond her control. The Nilfgaardian army overthrew Ciri’s kingdom largely to find her, and it’s Geralt’s responsibility to keep Ciri safe … if he can.

Netflix has released a new, official full-length trailer for The Witcher season 2, and it reveals that the Continent is under siege by more than just the forces of Nilfgaardian. Monsters are everywhere, and even Geralt can’t kill them all. Yet the greatest threat may be Ciri herself. Ciri’s lack of control could unleash her powers at very inopportune times, especially when her life is on the line. That’s why Geralt has taken her to be trained among the Witchers at Kaer Morhen. Ciri may have lost everything she loved, but she’s willing to fight for her home … and herself.

The trailer also checks in with Geralt’s lost love, Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra). Geralt feared that Yennefer was dead after the fearsome battle in the season 1 finale. But Yennefer may wish she was dead, as she endures torture and captivity at the hands of the Nilfgaardian. Regardless, Yennefer is trying to sow some dissension in Nilfgaardian’s ranks by convincing Fringilla Vigo (Mimi Ndiweni) that she’s simply being used as a pawn. Unfortunately, Fringilla is a powerful sorceress in her own right, and not easily swayed.

In a lighter moment, Geralt is reunited with one of his few friends: Jaskier (Joey Batey). He’s the bard who came up with the “Toss a Coin To Your Witcher” song that was a sensation in the show and a viral hit in the real world. It looks like Jaskier has fallen upon some hard times since last we saw him. But at least he’s making new friends.

Geralt finally knows fear in The Witcher season 3 teaser
Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, and Anya Chalotra in The Witcher.

In the first season of The Witcher, a family was the farthest thing from the mind of Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill). As one of the top monster hunters on the continent, Geralt simply assumed that he would always be alone. And yet into Geralt's life came two women who changed everything for him. The sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra) inflamed a passion in Geralt's heart that he never knew he had. And young Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) became a surrogate daughter to Geralt as he sought to protect her from danger. Now, in the first teaser trailer for The Witcher season 3, this makeshift family is finally united. And yet the normally brave Geralt has let fear into his heart.
