Watch the Trailer:
So today we are taking a look at five hints towards the plot that we got from the trailer of The Witcher Season 2. The Witcher Season 2 Teaser: Henry Cavill As Geralt Is All Set To Face His Dangerous Destiny In The Netflix Follow-Up (Watch Video).
If you’re a fan of The Witcher series, both the games and the books, then you know the importance of Kaer Morhen in the lore. It’s a castle where the Witchers reside and train. In the trailer, the castle itself looks spectacular as it retains a striking resemblance to Kaer Morhen that was featured in the videogame, The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt.
Introduction to New Witchers
With the introduction of Kaer Morhen, you’re even going to be introduced to a bunch of new Witchers. The last season mainly focused on Geralt as he made his journey through the world, but it looks like over here we will be getting a bunch of new characters. The one that trailer has us most excited about was the introduction of Vesemir, a Witcher who trains Geralt and a bunch of other Witchers under him.
Geralt Training Ciri
With Geralt finally finding Ciri at the end of season one and learning about his destiny, this next season has us excited for the development of their relationship. Fans of the books and the video games will be really excited to witness Geralt train Ciri in Kaer Morhen and how it could lead the series going further. The bulk of The Witcher is mainly focused on the guardian sort of relation that Geralt and Ciri have, so with the show finally sinking its teeth into the meat of the story has us excited for where it will go.
Battle at Kaer Morhen
Some scenes from the trailer may indicate that we may see a battle take place at Kaer Morhen. With Geralt telling Ciri to hide and run and a shot of him teaming up with Vesemir has us excited to see the scope of battles that season two will present us with. We can even see a flying monster in one of the scenes, so what that may be also has us speculating as to what’s actually happening at Kaer Morhen.
Return of Yennefer
With the final battle against the Nilfgaardian army at the end of season one, Yennefer’s fate was a bit of a mystery. It looks like season two will directly pick up Yennefer's story from season one as the final shot sees the mage being found by her group.
