C'mon! Did you really think Netflix was going to wrap WitcherCon without an official teaser trailer for The Witcher Season 2? I mean, look at everything they put out there before they released it. A date announcement video, an episode titles/logo reveal video, preview images, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and even confirmation that December 17th was the return date. Still, having the streaming service and showrunner & EP Lauren S. Hissrich cap the day off with that will make it pretty hard for fans of the show to say they walked away disappointed. Oh, and one more thing before you get to the teaser? A brand new Season 2 image of Roach:
With the global phenomenon set to return to Netflix on December 17, here's a look at the official teaser for the second season of The Witcher:
"The Witcher" Season 2: Convinced Yennefer's life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent's kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.
And that's not all! We also have episode titles for Season 2: Episode 1 – A Grain of Truth; Episode 2 – Kaer Morhen; Episode 3 – What Is Lost; Episode 4 – Redanian Intelligence; Episode 5 – Turn Your Back; Episode 6 – Dear Friend; Episode 7 – Voleth Meir; and Episode 8 – [REDACTED]. Hmmm… here's a look at the episode announcement video:
