The duo finally meet. 

Netflix’s WitcherCon event gave us some tantalising reveals for the Witcher universe - including a release date for Season 2: 17 December, 2021. We also got a new trailer for the upcoming season, teasing Geralt and Ciri’s next journey after finally meeting in the first season finale. 

Watch the trailer below:

The trailer picks up after Geralt and Ciri bumped into each other at the end of Season 1, with the Witcher deciding to take her back to Kaer Morhen. If you’ve played the games or read the books, you’d know that Kaer Morhen is a castle stronghold where Witchers gather in the winter to recuperate for extended periods of time. Once upon a time, Witchers were even created there - but the barbaric practice of making Witchers, known as the ‘Trial of the Grasses’, has long since been abandoned. 

At Kaer Morhen, Ciri meets many of Geralt’s fellow Witchers and trains to defend herself against multiple threats that have rendered the rest of Cintra unsafe for her. It looks like Kaer Morhen might not be any safer however, as we see the duo get into battles with unknown assailants later in the trailer. We also see Geralt face off against what looks like an actual witch on a broom, which is amusingly rustic for a show like this. 

A short snippet at the end of the trailer also reveals that Yennefer is alive and well in faraway forest, but separated from Geralt and Ciri. It remains to be seen if she and Jaskier will reunite with Geralt at any point this season - although we do see the bard strumming a tune halfway through the trailer. The Witcher Season 2 drops on 17 December, so we’ll just have to wait until then to see! We also got details on The Witcher's new anime film too.
