The Witcher Season 2 Plot: What can be it about?
The finale episode of The Witcher season 1 leaves the audiences with Yennefer’s fate in uncertain circumstances. The army of Nilfgaard’s defeated and showing Geralt of Rivia uniting with Ciri, the crown princess, with a special gift. In the teaser, Geralt of Rivia is shown convinced about the loss of Yennefer’s life in the battle of Sodden and takes Ciri to the safest place he knows, which is his childhood home Kaer Morhen. Commenting on the plot of the second season, the showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told DigitalSpy, “What I would say is that season one is very much about building blocks. It’s about constructing the world, and setting up these characters, and putting them on paths, and knocking those dominoes over.”
In season 2, we can expect, all the Geralt’s encounters with the other characters like Ciri and Yennefer at different kingdoms start connecting the dots, gets more prominent, and converge. As the plot unfolds, it gets more intense and watching Ciri and Yennefer being part of this action is worth looking forward to.
Will There Be Season 3?
Season 2 was already decided to be made while filming season 1. It is more likely that there will be season 3 as well.
