The Season 2 story description for The Witcher is as follows:
"Convinced Yennefer's (Anya Chalotra) life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) brings Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) 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."
These are just the latest newcomers for Season 2, as Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju has come aboard to play Nivellen, while Kim Bodnia will play Vesemir.
No release date has been announced for The Witcher Season 2, but it's presumably coming later than expected due to production issues caused by the pandemic.
Due to the huge popularity of The Witcher on Netflix, the network has announced a prequel series called Blood Origin. To learn more, check out GameSpot's roundup of everything we know about Blood Origin.
