The synopsis for season 2 reads, “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.”

Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2 Review Contains No Spoilers

The Witcher Season 2 picks up where it left us after the Battle of Sodden between the North and the Nilfgaard. After lots of challenges, Geralt (Henry Cavill) finds Ciri in the end, and he also assumes that Yennefer is dead. So his mission has now become to keep Ciri safe, no matter what. For the same, Geralt decides to get back to Kaer Morhen, hoping that it will keep Ciri safe.

At Kaer Morhen, we meet Geralt’s mentor Vesemir, a character fans have been waiting to see. Geralt decides to train Ciri so that she can protect herself. But it’s not an easy task. On the other hand, after using the spell of fire at the Battle of Sodden, Yennefer loses her Power of Chaos. To get her power back, she returns to Aretuza. But troubles await her everywhere.

Will Geralt be able to protect Ciri? Will Ciri also become a Witcher like him? Will he know that Yennefer is alive, and they cross paths again? What new trouble lies ahead for everyone? Is there going to be more bloodbath with another deadly battle? The 8 long episodes give some answers.

After Geralt in season 1, The Witcher Season 2 focuses greatly on Ciri. Together, they meet Nivellen, kill the monster, and seek shelter as Kaer Morhen. Along with the main focus on Ciri, various parallels are running, showing other crucial characters of the Netflix show. The first season followed a non-liner storytelling format which wasn’t appreciated by all. But the makers have learnt from their mistakes and decided to keep the flow straight in season 2.

The writing is strong, punchy, and riveting because the events and stories of the characters are told in linear order. Ciri’s story has been well-served by the makers, who have avoided allowing Geralt to overpower the plot at any time. She is the focus of attention, yet he is equally essential. I like how Cavill’s character isn’t completely ignored. He is, without a doubt, the show’s driving power.

Expect plenty of violence, blood, and gruesome scenes as it’s a fantasy period drama with horror undertones. With a premise that traps you in until the end, the series has doubled its grim setting. As expected, Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia is terrific. In season 2, he looks much better, more powerful, and physically mature.

The Witcher Season 2 Still

Freya Allan as Ciri is in every second frame, and the actor has done a spectacular job. She’s not the scary little princess anymore. Freya has done a good job is showing the smooth fierce transformation of Ciri. The rest of the cast plays their part well.

Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2 Review: Final Thoughts

Overall, there are hardly any flaws one can point out from season 2 of The Witcher on Netflix. The writing is better than the previous season, the storytelling format is engaging, and the performances are brilliant. You’ll be in for a fantastic surprise in the end.

The series is now streaming on Netflix.
