Newcomer Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones), who plays a boar-man named Nivellen, narrates the beginning of the trailer as he talks to Cavill's character, Geralt. “Something has changed, Geralt. The world's acting strange these days,” he says. The narration helps to set the tone for season two, as Nivellen says, “The North and South [are] at war. Monsters roaming when they should be hibernating. Maybe it's the end of days.”
To which Cavill's character comically responds, “I've lived through three supposed ‘end of days.’ It's all horsesh*t.” However, based on the trailer, it seems like this omen shouldn't be so quickly dismissed.
The action-packed series has been absent for almost two years now due to the coronavirus pandemic, which delayed production on the second season. However, the show has already been renewed for a third season.
The eight episodes of season two will pick up where the last season left off, and they will continue to be based around the series of Witcher books and short stories written by Andrzej Sapkowski.
We couldn't be more excited.
