The Witcher Netflix series has become quite a phenomenon in recent memory. Fans of the game and book series as well as those who gush over medieval fantasy absolutely lauded the first season. The show perfectly captured the essence of the characters and world while satisfying the masses that just came off the absolute dud of a finale from Game of Thrones. With a promised seven seasons for the show comes news on castings for characters both unknown and very familiar to fans that toss coins to all Witcher content.
The second season, according to Redanian Intelligence, has cast relatively unknown actor Edward Rowe in the role of King Henselt, ruler of Kaedwen. Fans of The Witcher game series will recognize the name from a major player from CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. In the game, Henselt is a prideful king with a taste for watching duels, warmongering, and hedonism. The player assuming the role of Geralt of Rivia has the choice of ending the king while on his literal high horse or manipulate him until the events of the next game however the show has something more in store for this tyrannical monarch.
In the past, Laura S. Hissrich the showrunner has clarified that the entirety of the show takes place before the events of the first Witcher game. The series will then explore Henselt’s origin story relating to the heroic trio of Geralt, Yennifer, and Ciri before becoming the boisterous king many gamers chose to execute. Perhaps he earns kingship while interacting with Geralt or he’ll possibly arrange for Geralt to fight in a duel against a neighboring kingdom leading him down a path toward eventual tyranny. The possibilities for the directions of the show can go just about anywhere and it just seems to spell excitement every step of the way until release.
After a slew of production halts from Covid-19 outbreaks to on-set injuries, it’s nice to finally have some good news about everyone’s new favorite fantasy epic. As usual fans and newcomers can rejoice at the effort put forth to ensure the most enthralling and bloody tales from Nilfgaard. The best content from a sprawling franchise like The Witcher comes from creators who are just as big of fans as the readers or gamers of the series. The inclusion of fan-favorite characters should spark piquing interest in the other parts of media the franchise inhabits as well as clarity on the denizens that live in the witching world. Should any production halts cease at once you can toss a coin to your favorite witcher on August 17th, 2021.

Exciting news for Witcher fans! The full trailer for The Witcher has been released, the television adaptation of the bestselling novels and video game franchise. The trailer premiered at San Diego Comic Con, showcasing the series in all its glory for the world at last. The trailer showcases Henry Cavill, who stars in the lead as Geralt of Rivia, the titular witcher, a monster hunter trained in the arts of killing. Henry Cavill discussed the series premise, where he said this:
A witcher is a young boy who has been left to fend for themselves and taken in by the group called witchers and they are trained to levels of almost inhuman agility and endurance. And from there they become mutants, most of these children do not survive. After that they are trained in the art of monster hunting and travel the world hunting monster for coin, that is their one and sole purpose in the world.
The series is based on the popular book series, which in turned inspired an even more popular role-playing series of games, which culminated in the critically acclaimed Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The show will be maintained by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who has also helped bring Netflix’s other TV shows, such as Daredevil and The Umbrella Academy to life. The show will not be adapting a specific novel but rather, drawing from the franchise in general to tell the story of Geralt on the small screen.
The series trailer looks very promising, seeming to focus on the origins of how Geralt met the series other protagonist, Ciri, a child of destiny that is wanted by multiple forces throughout the books. The show looks very expensive, showcasing a fully realized world full of breathtaking locations, great costumes, and brief glimpses of the monsters Geralt hunts. This could be the next Game of Thrones for fantasy fans looking to get their fix on tv. Presumably we’ll hear his voice at some point, however. Glimpses of Ciri and Yennefer are also seen, along with clips of magic and sword fighting. The whole tine has a grim atmosphere, showcasing its trueness to the text. Most intriguing is at the end, where Geralt faces off against some sort of giant crab monster rising out of a swamp and his eyes turn pitch black. We’ll have to watch to see what this is all about.
The Witcher will likely premiere sometime this Fall, although no official release date has been announced. Are you excited to see the world of the Witcher brought to life on TV? Watch the trailer below and let us know in the comments!
