During today’s TUDUM online fan event, Netflix revealed a new trailer, two first-look clips at The Witcher Season 2 featuring Henry Cavill, and a behind-the-scenes set tour video of the prequel, Blood Origins.
“You can’t escape the monster within,” said Netflix. “Prepare for Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri’s return to the world of The Witcher, with not one but two exclusive sneak peeks from Season 2.”
About The Witcher: Blood Origin, Netflix said, ” Get an exclusive, first-ever look behind the scenes of the epic prequel series depicting the creation of the prototype Witcher and the events leading to the pivotal ‘Conjunction of the Spheres.'”
The Witcher Season 2 premiers December 17 on Netflix also starring Freya Allan as Ciri and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is the showrunner.
“I played the Season One way deliberately, which was him out in the wilds and without the opportunity for vast swathes of dialogue,” said Henry Cavill at July’s WitcherCon. “I thought it best to be the man who says less because that seems like he’s thinking more. And that was the intention with that. But once you get into a scenario with Cirilla, and the Witchers and his home space and with those people who he already knows, I was of the opinion that you had to let him be verbose and be philosophical and speak more and be intellectual, because that’s what he is. He’s not just a big old white-haired brute.”
Netflix also announced Season 3 has been greenlit along with a second anime feature film, and a new Kids and Family series.
