The Witcher‘s first season told three separate stories across multiple timelines. It was a wild, chaotic, wholly entertaining introduction to the world of The Continent. A land of monsters, magic, mayhem, and impossibly attractive people. At the show’s heart though was a far more personal story. The finale ended with the White Wolf, Geralt of Rivia, finally finding the princess he is meant to protect, Ciri. But things aren’t going to get easier for them. The first trailer for season two makes clear the pair’s fight for survival is just starting. And that’s going to bring Geralt back to where his own story starts.
Netflix gave fans their first full look at The Witcher‘s second season as part of the first ever WitcherCon virtual event. Henry Cavill and Freya Allan’s journey together looks to be just as perilous as their time apart in season one. That will lead Geralt to return to his childhood home and the witcher who trained him.
Things don’t look to be any easier for Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer either. The season’s official synopsis explains why she might not find Geralt as soon as any of us would like.
“Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
The virtual event also gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show’s sophomore effort.
We’re confident things will work out though. Not because we’re convinced everyone will be safe. But because the new season will include Jaskier wearing an amazing coat.
WitcherCon also gave us something else we’ve been waiting for: a release date. We’re all going to have a Merry Witchmas. The series returns to Netflix on December 17.

Netflix also gave us more clues about what to expect from season two. We just have to figure out what every episode title means.
It’s probably a good thing we didn’t get the title for the season finale. WHICH IS WHY WE MUST HAVE IT!
Okay, fine. We’ll wait. In the meantime though, make sure to check out our post with everything we know about season two. As well as our full breakdown of the Continent’s timeline up to the moment Geralt and Ciri found one another.
Hopefully it’s not too far into the future when they will also find Yennefer.
