The Witcher Season 2’s First Script Page Has Been Revealed by Netflix
Fans get a little glimpse at what's in store for The Witcher season two.
As the count-down to the holidays begins, Netflix has come in early with a present for Witcher fans. On the final day of Witchmas, we have been treated to a sneak-peak at the first page of The Witcher season two script page. If you have read the books by Andrzej Sapkowski, specifically “A Grain of Truth” which is the third story in The Last Wish, the script may just give away a hint on what’s to come in season two in Netflix’s The Witcher.
As many eagle-eyed Twitter users have pointed out, page one of the script bears an uncanny similarity to the Witcher short story, ‘A Grain of Truth’ where Geralt happens upon the corpses of a merchant and a woman. While retracing their steps to find out what happened to them, he meets a man in a monster’s mask named Nivellen. We already know that Nivellen has been cast in season 2 and he’ll be played by Kristofer Hivju, best known as Tormund Giantsbane from Game of Thrones. As we can see from page one, there’s a merchant on a cart with his daughter and wife when out of the shadows, something leaps out and kills him and his wife. The girl, now alone, jumps from the cart and runs toward a giant mansion on the hill overlooking the village.
Ingrained through the script is Geralt’s voice-over dialog talking about something terrible he has witnessed. Finally, at the end of his voice-over, Geralt talks about that he was meant to be alone and suggests that whatever formidable entity he’s talking to might be something that even he is afraid of. The two stories are almost identical which gives us a good hint that the story might provide the inspiration for the first episode. If so, episode one of season two is most certainly in for a good start and I can’t wait to see how the entire season plays out.

For more Witcher news, why not give yourself a giggle and check out some of the bloopers from The Witcher season one right here, and while you’re there, take a look at the brand new ‘Witcher Bestiary’ video that includes a look into the monster’s real-world origins. Since it’s Christmas and how awful 2020 has been, 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. Although, we aren’t too sure how festive Henry Cavill is at the moment as the poor guy has ended up injuring himself between filming scenes. Even though Cavill’s leg injury was a minor one, production had to be temporarily suspended while Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia, took some time to rest.
For those who are looking more into the future of The Witcher, you’ll be glad to know that Season three has already been greenlit so Witcher fans will be delighted to have the show continue even when season two ends. If you wish, be sure to check out our own review for the Netflix series The Witcher here as you wait until next year sometime to get a look at season two. But 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 and as captivating as ever.
