Netflix’s The Witcher Gives Us a Sneak Peek From the Set of Season 2
Check out some behind the scenes images of season two of Netflix's The Witcher.
As reported earlier today, The Witcher‘s Henry Cavill has had to take a little rest due to hurting his leg while on an assault course. Thankfully though, and despite hitting a series of monster-sized hurdles, the continuation of season two can be played out around the actor as he rests up and hopefully he’ll soon be back to his witchery ways. To cheer us all up, Netflix’s The Witcher has tossed its fans some treats as they celebrate its first day of #Witchmas by offering us a look around the curtain at season two in a series of images.
Even though we don’t get a glance at any of the cast members, the images provide a lot more than meets the eye. As you can see from the pictures below, there’s the Witcher medallions hanging from what looks to be a tree and also a collection of swords which could very well be of Kaer Morhen, the keep where the Witchers of the School of Wolf were initially trained and also where Geralt of Rivia is taking Princess Ciri in season two. If you’re a fan of The Witcher, you’ll know that a lot of Geralt’s fellow Witchers were killed so the hanging medallions shown could be from his fallen comrades.
We also get a look at what could be an elven Scoia’tael flag tucked into a forest somewhere. Scoia’tael are elven rebels (known to be made up of halflings and dwarves, too) also known as the Squirrels, due to the squirrel tails they wear on themselves and appear throughout the game in The Witcher, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Whether this is a Scoia’tael flag remains to be seen when we finally get a chance to watch season two of The Witcher for ourselves at some point next year.
Over on The Witcher Twitter account, fans have been given the fun opportunity to vote on what they would like revealed on the first day of #Witchmas. The choice that players had the chance to vote on were ‘Cuts from The Witcher Season One’ or ‘The Law of Surprise’. With the latter topping the votes this time, a trio of images appeared in some sweet shots of season two. In a new poll, fans will get the choice between getting to see ‘Season two Script Page’ or, again, ‘The Law of Surprise’. So far it seems that people are gravitating towards more of the same in The Law of Surprise but there’s still time yet if you want to cast your vote.
The Witcher is available to stream on Netflix now and if you wish, be sure to check out our own review for the Netflix series here as you wait until next year sometime to get a look at season two. If gaming is more your style, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will be heading to next-generation platforms and this time, the game will look as pretty as ever.
