'The Witcher' Season 2: New Trailer, Release Date, Stills

New trailer, new stills, new behind the scenes!

If you missed today's WitcherCon, we have all the highlights including the first trailer for Season 2 of The Witcher. The new season arrives on December 17th. The date was revealed along with an epic poster of Geralt and Ciri.

We also heard from the cast and Henry was interviewed separately by MTV's Joshua Horowitz. Henry shared some really great details from the set of The Witcher and teased ahead to Season 2. Watch his full interview along with the rest of the excellent content from WitcherCon.



Even Roach got his moment in the spotlight, as several new stills from S2 were revealed.

WitcherCon definitely delivered in a big way!


Catch up on everything else from the con (and there's definitely a lot more) in our wrap

Finally, here's a little of what TheWitcher stars and showrunner had to tease about Season 2. Much more to come!

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich on the relationship between Geralt and Ciri:

“At the end of Season 1, we have what I think is one of the sort of most emotional scenes that we've done, which is Geralt and Ciri finding each other after they've both been searching all season… And it seems like we've got a father figure and daughter figure, and everything's going to be perfect at that point, except for they've never met. And so it was really fun to start Season 2 thinking about, well, they're not a family yet. How do they grow to be one? What do you do if you are a person like Geralt, who has sworn he doesn't need anyone in the world whatsoever? And then he's presented with a girl who is now solely in his care. And we have Ciri, who's used to being under the care of people but has basically been running from everyone for an entire season and now being told that this person is going to take care of you. And so it was really fun to start Season 2 kind of them a little uncertain about how to be with each other, and they have to really grow into that. We wanted to make sure that felt like an authentic relationship, that they weren't just bonded at the very beginning.”

Freya Allan on whether we are going to see Ciri in training sequences this season:

“[Training] was one of the things I was most excited about for Season 2, because I love doing all that. I love the stunt department. We have the best people involved, and they're so much fun and get the best out of you. But yes, Ciri begins training and it actually becomes one of her main kind of drives. She's very determined, and she really wants to become a great fighter and become a Witcher.”

Anya Chalotra on her favourite things about her character Yennefer:

“I'd have to say, where there's a will, there's a way with her. She is a survivor, and I love that about her. That would be my favourite. But there's lots, there's many traits I love. We've become quite similar. We form each other, I think.”

Henry Cavill on the journey of his character Geralt of Rivia:

“I played the Season One way deliberately, which was him out in the wilds and without the opportunity for vast swathes of dialogue. I thought it best to be the man who says less because that seems like he's thinking more. And that was the intention with that. But once you get into a scenario with Cirilla, and the Witchers and his home space and with those people who he already knows, I was of the opinion that you had to let him be verbose and be philosophical and speak more and be intellectual, because that's what he is. He's not just a big old white-haired brute.”

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich on new characters to Season 2:

“There are so many characters that we're introducing in Season 2. We are getting to see Dijkstra for the first time and sort of the Redanian Kingdoms. I know a lot of fans are excited to meet Philippa for the first time, Codringher and Fenn, Rience, Nenneke. There's so many, but I would have to say Vesemir is the one I'm looking most forward to our audience meeting. Vesemir is so integral to the story that we're telling this season. Obviously, we're returning to Kaer Morhen for the first time, and in a season that is about Geralt becoming a father to Ciri, it felt so important to meet who his father figure was. And you end up with this multigenerational story because Vesemir and Ciri have a story as well, and it does start to feel like, "Oh, all of these people are meant to be interacting and learning from each other and fighting with each other."

  2. Hello there,

    Oh what a day, a heaven for all of us who waited for the Witchercon day to come! I was thrown back by the trailer! Hands up for the Dark Look and White Wolf Eyes, my heart just beats frenzy thinking of it! It suits the Role perfectly, they nailed it! And Ciri? Could’nt imagine a better choice, she is amazing! Looks like the TW 2 will smash Netflix views and Records again. Wise timing!

    I am very certain that many people are still to watch the WItchercon replayed. I can’t wait for 12.17!

    Hugs to you all,


  3. I loved the witchercon! I couldn't believe it! Henry was amazing and the whole cast was so cute! The trailer looks awesome, I already love the dynamic between Geralt and Ciri and Gerlat himself is portrayed fantastic once again by Henry! I love that his more warm, philoshophical and wise. I can't wait for his meeting with Yennefer and Yen, Geralt and Ciri family time. Kaer Morhen looks fantastic and the other Witchers all look brilliant! I loved everything!

  4. It's been more than a week that the trailer came out and I still can't recover. Geralt and Ciri are so precious ❤️ I hope the season is as good as the teasers imply. I loved everything from Witchercom although I missed a panel with Henry, Anya and Freya. But great job from everyone.
