The Witcher season 2 official trailer is all about fighting and rebuilding

Netflix has released the official trailer for The Witcher season 2, offering a longer look than the teaser trailer released back in July. Nonetheless, it doesn’t necessarily reveal a lot of what to expect in terms of story for the season (which, frankly, is a good thing in this age of trailers that give away the entire story). Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) brings Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) to Kaer Morhen, where she will be protected and probably gain combat training, and Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra) is off doing… something. Basically, the two main things Netflix’s official trailer for The Witcher season 2 offers are plenty of action and the promise of rebuilding after a lot of tumultuous situations at the end of last season.

CD Projekt Red may be in an awkward state at the moment as it delays new-gen versions of The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 to next year, but this The Witcher TV series is expected to do more gangbusters viewership numbers for Netflix. After all, the first season of The Witcher was one of the most in-demand streaming series in the world upon its release, probably because it was really entertaining and Henry Cavill turns out to be a fantastic Geralt. The official trailer for The Witcher season 2 raises hopes that even more exciting events lie ahead when the series returns on December 17.
