The very first season of The Witcher was pretty explosive, and according to the latest updates, season 2 will up the ante as it will involve more intense action than season 1. The official plot of season 2 is yet to be revealed, however, the showrunner revealed that all of the 3 storylines now align in the same timeline, so season 2 would be more ‘straightforward,’ and ‘streamlined.’

Also, season 2 will be more interesting for Ciri as she will have a major role to play, and she will be involved in more fight scenes as well. Season 1 didn’t unite Ciri with Geralt, however, we can expect things to get very interesting when they both unite in season 2. According to Hissrich, Ciri will be getting more screentime, and season 2 will ‘savor’ her transformation from a princess to a fearless warrior. The original story had a time-jump, however, Hissrich assured that the adaption wouldn’t skip the few months of them being together after uniting. She further added that Ciri’s story had to be trimmed down in season 1 which made her very absent in the story, so they will be digging the character in season 2 and will focus on her storyline more.

Earlier, the official team revealed that season 2 will be taking a different approach in its direction and unline season 1, the focus will shift towards the characters of Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer and their individual storylines.
