The Witcher which a Polish-American fantasy drama television series, is based on the book series of the same name by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The series produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is about the adventures of a sexy monster hunter and his weird pals. Production was paused in March when season 2 is filming because of the COVID-19 pandemic. And then, Henry Cavill was injured. And now, Netflix has shared three teaser images from season 2 of The Witcher:
The first picture could be Witcher’s steel sword. The second one is in a forest. It is reminiscent of the Scoia’tael’s crossed-arrow heraldry. The last picture is a medallion. It is from the Wolf School, presumably Geralt’s, but it’s the presence of the others that’s really interesting. It may a reference to the arrival of other Witchers in the series.
Showrunner Lauren Hissrich said in April that season two will “dig deeper” into Cahir and Fringilla, the show’s nominal villains, including “who they are, why Nilfgaard is important to them, and where they’ll go from here.”
