The Witcher: The Nightmare of the Wolf is one of the most popular TV series in Poland. The show has been filmed for two seasons, and it can’t be denied that fans are looking forward to The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Season 2 release date. The new episodes will present an exciting story of Geralt chasing after Ciri who disappeared mysteriously while he was asleep.
What is the release date of The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Season 2?
Netflix has announced that they will release new episodes of The Witcher on December 17, 2021. They made a poster and teaser trailer to announce their first-ever WitcherCon – an event for fans of the games, comics, TV series, and anime film Nightmare of the Wolf.
During the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said that there is still a lot of work to be done in the post-production.
So…let's talk about that Nightmare of the Wolf ending and what it means for #TheWitcher Season 2, shall we?
So I am back and forth between Los Angeles and London filming that. And that is all we are doing. We need a great second season for it to have a third season. Shooting wrapped on The Witcher’s second installment in April, Netflix is celebrating by sharing a video with Henry Cavill and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. They are the ones who plan the show. They tease what will happen next in the show.
This is the first time we have ever experienced this with a television season. We can’t wait to show you what Geralt has been up to since we left him at the Battle of Sodden Hill.
What is the plot of The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Season 2?
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich recently revealed some spoilers for the season two premiere episode. Fans loved this information because it was revealed that the first episode would be an adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s A Grain of Truth – one of the stories, on which the show is based, that was cut from the first season.
Neville is a character in the game. One character is his daughter and another character is Geralt. They explore Nivellen’s backstory too.
The first episode of the second season is about family. The episode will talk about secrets and monsters. It will be perfect as a beginning to the second season.
Last year, we had some information about the plot of season 2 of Netflix’s website. It says that Geralt of Rivia thought that Yennefer’s life was lost at the battle at Sodden. He brings Princess Cirilla to his safe place in Kaer Morhen.
The author of a book called “The Continent” said that the kings, elves, humans, and demons outside the walls are trying to get power. The only problem is that something even more dangerous is inside. In an interview with Digital Spy, Hissrich promised a second season that will be more intense. This season is all about building blocks. It’s about setting up the world, and making it ready for people to watch. These characters are going in a certain direction, and you will see this when they start to fall over.
What can we expect?
When you get to the second season, things will start happening. We made all these characters meet each other – sometimes they get along and sometimes they don’t. All the different kingdoms that you barely hear about in the first season start to come out in the second.
“In season two, the storytelling is a little more intense. Maybe it is focused on different things and not as confusing.”
In a Reddit post, the boss of The Witcher explained that they put the narrative structure in place so that they could tell Geralt’s stories as well as Ciri and Yennefer’s.
In season two of the show, the stories will be told more linearly. That means that they will happen one after another. They have started to connect. Different organizations do not all have the same thing. It is not like every organization is happy with each other all of the time. But you want to use different ways to think about how things work on a wider scale.
“I think that there is a lot we couldn’t put into the first season. There are different short stories that I would love to highlight and focus on. We may end up doing those in the future, through flashbacks for instance. But no, we won’t have things happening across 100 years at the same time anymore.”
One of the biggest changes we’ve made is to make sure that stories aren’t too long. It’s a terrible thing when you shoot a story that you’re proud of, and then it’s 95 minutes long and you’re trying to fit it into 60 minutes of television.
Who will be starring in it?
In a statement to Deadline, Hissrich confirmed that Cavill, Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), and Freya Allan (Ciri) will all be in season two of the show. We knew this because they are in the books the show is based on.
This is about a story with Triss, Jaskier, Cahir, Tissaia, Stregobor, Artorius and Filavandrel. Yarpen Zigrin and Istredd will also be in it.
Many people are happy with Mimi Ndiweni’s performance in the new Witcher series. She said that we will know more about her character and why she is different from Yennefer.
A lot of people from Game of Thrones will be in the movie. The actor who played Lute is now Nivelles. He is going to be on a show called Silent Witness. Liz Carr from Silent Witness is going to play Fenn. Downton Abbey actor Graham McTavish will play Dijkstra and Kevin Chris Fulton as Rience, Yasen Atour as Coën, Agnes Bjorn as Vereena, Paul Bullion as Lambert, Basil Eidenbenz as Eskel and Aisha Fabienne Ross as Lydia.
