[Mis à jour le 17 décembre 2021 à 08h00] Season 2 of The Witcher is online this Friday, December 17, 2021. Difficult to remember the many events that punctuated the first season? We offer you a little recap before starting the new episodes of the series carried by Henry cavill. In season 1 of The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia is a monster hunter (Witcher) who discovers that his fate is linked to that of a girl of the forest in 1231. During his adventures, he finds himself saving a certain Duny, who wishes to marry Princess Pavetta de Cintra. By invoking the right of surprise to pay his debt, Geralt finds himself entitled to claim Pavetta’s child, little Ciri, who is not yet.
The Witcher ends up doing it years later. Because en 1263, the kingdom of Cintra was invaded by the empire of Nilfgaard. The young princess of Cintra, Cirilla (Ciri) is sent by her grandmother Queen Calanthe to look for Geralt of Rivia. She is captured by Cahir, an officer of Nilfgaard, but manages to escape using her powers. On the run, Ciri ends up finding Geralt before Cahir and taking the girl under his protection. In parallel, the witch Yenefer, cursed love of the Witcher, is taken prisoner by the Nilfgaard. Geralt thinks she is dead. Below is the detailed recap of The Witcher’s first season before Season 2.

Successful when it went online in 2019, the first season of the adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books (themselves adapted into successful video games developed by CD Projekt Red) stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher, a monster hunter who hires his services to the highest bidders. Season 1 ended with the meeting of Geralt and Ciri, a princess whose fate is linked to the Witcher. And as we can see in the first trailer for Season 2 (July 2021), below, the duo’s journey will be fraught with pitfalls. Geralt therefore intends to take Ciri to safety in the fortress of Kaer Morhen where he hopes to protect her but also to train her in the basics of sword fighting.
Convinced that Yennefer’s life was lost in the Battle of Mount Sodden, Geralt of Rivia takes Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home in Kaer Morhen. As the kings of the Continent, elves, humans and demons fight for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the young girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses.
