The Witcher season 2 will be available in the last 3 months of 2021. Now we have two trailers (albeit very brief) that you can check out. It has been two years since Geraltof Rivia (Henry Cavill), a brilliant fantasy drama from Netflix that features the work of Andrzej Sypkowski.
The Witcher season 2 is not yet released. What else do we know? This includes detailed cast information as well as rumored plot details. These episodes will show Geralt, Ciri, and their journeys together. Season 2’s convoluted timeline structure is gone and season 3 will be much more straightforward.
We have finally got a teaser trailer for season 2! While it doesn’t reveal too much, it does give a hint of what’s to come in the next episodes. This guide will give you all the information we have so far on The Witcher season 2. It’s divided into sections about the story, cast, and release date. Here are the details about Geralt’s return.
The Witcher was first shown on Netflix one month before its second season.

The Witcher season 2 synopsis
We haven’t seen The Witcher 2 synopsis. We hope to soon hear more about the season, but it’s unlikely to be released before 2021.
In the meantime, we can speculate as to what season 2 might bring.
We were able to see Geralt and Ciri meet for the first time at the end of the first season. They found each other in the chaos. We know that they will eventually meet with Yennefer but don’t know when.
We also know Nilfgaard, who is at the center of a major power struggle, has the support and/or apathy of many of the mages. We will likely see how many Northern Kingdoms can fight back against Nilfgaardians during season 2.
In the new season, we expect that most of the story will follow Geralt Ciri and Yennefer. How do they keep Ciri safe and secure from Nilfgaard? This is the key question for the new season.
New cast members
The Witcher’s biggest addition to its cast was announced in February 2020. Killing Eve actor Kim Bodnia (below), was cast the role of Vesemir.
Vesemir, one the oldest witchers living, is a father figure for Geralt, as Witcher fans know. Vesemir is one of the only survivors of Kaer Morhen’s massacre that decimated nearly all witchers at the school where Geralt was educated and raised. He also mentors Ciri during her first years with Geralt.
Netflix announced that The Witcher season 2 will feature a group of new cast members a week before.

Thue Ersted Ramussen was originally cast in the role of Eskel. Eskel is a fellow witcher from the School of the Wolf. Geralt had trained at this school. Rasmussen had no choice but to leave the role because of scheduling conflicts related to COVID-19. he was quickly replaced in his place by Basil Eidenbenz. Eskel, Geralt’s friend and key character both in the novels and in the popular video game franchise they created, is also a central character.
The remaining two characters on the list were, who was first reported to join the series several weeks before Rasmussen announced their initial announcement.
Paul Bullion, Peaky Blinders, and The Bastard Executioner actor (above) will play Lambert. He is another witcher of the School of the Wolf. Fans will be able to see Lambert in season 2, which gives insight into Geralt’s early years as well as the training he went through to become a witcher.
