The Witcher Season 2 Official Trailer Brings More Action & Monster Fights

Netflix has released the official trailer for The Witcher season 2, teasing conflict as Henry Cavill’s Geralt faces the potential “end of days.” Though the monster hunter jokes that he’s lived through more than his fair share of world-ending scenarios, the trailer does show that this next season will be particularly action-packed. Ciri, played by Freya Allan, gets a fair amount of the spotlight too, but you can see all of the action for yourself in Netflix’s The Witcher season 2 trailer below.

The The Witcher season 2 teaser trailer came during this year’s WitcherCon and teased the father-daughter relationship between Geralt and Ciri. At the time, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich explained that the Netflix show’s second season would take the time to strengthen the bond between both leads: “We wanted to make sure that felt like an authentic relationship, that they weren’t just bonded at the very beginning.”

As the official trailer reminds us, The Witcher season 2 comes to Netflix on December 17, 2021, but it’s not the only Witcher content you can chew on right now. The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, an anime prequel in the vein of Netflix’s Castlevania, gave fans background for Vesemir while answering series questions. The streamer is also working on another spinoff called The Witcher: Blood Origin, though that project lost its lead, Jodie Turner-Smith, back in April.
