The first season concluded with Geralt meeting Ciri in the forest. Well, in the second season, Geralt will take Ciri to the safest place he knows, “Kaer Morhen.” Interestingly, that’s the place where Ciri will train under the guidance of Geralt and Vesemir in the second episode, titled Kaer Morhen.”

According to some early reviews, the Second Season of The Witcher will not feature time jumps. The story will focus more on Geralt protecting Ciri from the dangers of the world while also preparing her for the upcoming fight.
