The Witcher Renewed for Season 3; New Season 2 Previews Released

With its second season set to hit the streaming service on December 17, The Witcher star Henry Cavill showed up at Netflix's Tudum to offer a new sneak preview of the second season that sees a growing father/daughter dynamic happening between Cavill's Geralt and Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) as she begins training. And considering what Ciri's power levels were looking like at the end of last season, it comes not a moment too soon- and that's where Kim Bodnia's Vesemir (Geralt's mentor & father figure) will play a major role in Ciri's training.
