Netflix has released the official trailer for The Witcher Season 2.
The second season of the live action show will debut on the streaming platform on December 17.
The key players from season one—monster hunter Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Cholatra), princess Ciri (Freya Allan) and Jaskier (Joey Batey)—are joined by a number of fresh faces in season two.
New cast additions include Kristofer Hivju, who portrayed Tormund Giantsbane in the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, as Nivellen, and Peaky Blinders actor Paul Bullion as Lambert.
Other new faces include Yasen Atour (Young Wallander) as Coen, Agnes Bjorn (Monster) as Vereena, Thue Ersted Rasmussen (Fast and Furious 9) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia, and Mecia Simson as Francesca.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2022 and The Witcher 3 is planned for the second quarter of 2022.
The acclaimed RPG celebrated its fifth birthday in May 2020 and has sold over 30 million copies.
Speaking in September 2020, CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński said he hoped the new-gen version of Wild Hunt would significantly extend the lifecycle of the game.
“The Witcher 3 is still selling great and we believe that having it updated on par with the most recent games—or the games that will be released—is a great advantage in terms of sales over the next who knows how many years – five? Four? So, in the long term it will be a meaningful addition to our back catalogue.”
