Netflix has released an official synopsis, giving fans a preview of the next episodes.
Geralt of Rivia convinces Yennefer that his life was overthrown at the Battle of Sodden and brings Princess Cirilla to Kaer Morhen, his childhood home. While the Continent’s kings and elves, humans, demons, and others strive to dominate the walls, he must protect Princess Cirilla from something far more deadly: the mysterious power that she possesses within.
