The Witcher season 2 just dropped another clip including protagonist Geralt battling what appears to be a Leshen in Kaer Morhen, school of the Witchers. The Witcher releases its second season on December 17, 2021 on Netflix with eight episodes. The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt, known for his work in the DCEU, and is show-run by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, known for her work on The Umbrella Academy.
This new Witcher season 2 clip was first shared during Cavill’s new appearance on The Graham Norton Show (by means of u/BrigBain). The 39-second clip depicts Geralt in Kaer Morhen battling what resembles sentient vines (most possible a tree monster called a Leshen which was previous teased in The Witcher season 2 trailer). The first 30 seconds consist of what resembles a solid take, an extraordinariness in network programs with weighty special effects, where Geralt successfully defends himself prior to being snatched by a huge plant and pulled facing a column, leaving him fixed, as the clip ends. Look at it, beneath:
The Witcher is based on a series of novels and short stories by writer Andrzej Sapkowski, with The Witcher season 1 covering The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, two short story collections that went before the fundamental saga of books. The series has also been adjusted into several computer games, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt being viewed as a milestone in open-world storytelling, selling more than 30 million copies. The TV show has also seen a spin-off film The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf release in 2020, and a restricted series The Witcher: Blood Origin that will release in 2022.
The Witcher’s underlying reviews were blended, with some condemning it for its shaky world-working, despite Cavill’s presentation getting high praise. Perhaps in the second season, the writers will have a firmer hold on the world, basing their episodes on the novels rather than the short stories, taking into consideration a more concise story and themes. Hissrich has discussed completing seven seasons of The Witcher, and for the show to hold interest that long, they’ll need to twofold down on making a lucid world while keeping up with the activity, interest, and humor that made The Witcher a hit with audiences in the first spot.
