While season 2 of “The Witcher” has just been released on the famous platform with the red logo, we already know more about the following events for Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer!
The witcher : a season 2 appreciated
Unveiled in December, the second season of The witcher seems to have won over the fans! I have to say that, following the criticisms around the first series of episodes – and in particular the different timelines who went through these – the writers have made a point of not reproducing the same pattern. If the introduction of the different protagonists and stakes could in certain aspects leave something to be desired by its complexity, these new episodes clearly have made up for the clumsiness of their predecessors.
Henry Cavill, headliner of the series adapted from the works of Andrzej Sapkowski, thinks ready to take over the role of Gerlat de Riv over no less than seven seasons! Absolute fan of games, the actor had gone out of his way to get an audition when he heard about the project.
Recently, the salary of the Witcher’s interpreter was revealed by the Hollywood Reporter. According to the newspaper, the star of the Netflix show was paid around $ 400,000 per episode in season 1. But beware, for the second round of episodes of the program, the latter was entitled to a clear increase ! Henry Cavill would have touched no less than a million per episode, in other words 8 million over the entire season.
Change of program
Even before the release of season 2, we already knew that a third opus would see the light of day: Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, creator and showrunner of the program, has already much to say about upcoming events. The author first announces to Hollywood Reporter the end of writing of the next season of the series! Fact, The witcher It should not take long to enter production, at least if sanitary conditions permit. For those who haven’t seen season 2, we advise you not to read the following !
The main plot of season 3 of The witcher should revolve around the trio formed by Yennefer, Geralt and Ciri. Corn the betrayal of the first will not remain without consequences … His two companions will have to find the strength to forgive him, foreshadowing of the commotion between the sorceress and the Witcher. For the record, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich adds that in Blood of Elves, the book from which season 2 is adapted, the character of Yennefer only appeared in the third act.
I told myself I couldn’t do this. I couldn’t do that to this character.
The designer has therefore chose to exploit the wanderings of Yennefer in parallel with the adventures of Geralt and Ciri, while taking care to respect the coherence and the universe of Sapkowski’s work!
What to expect from the future?
Season 3 of the program is adapted from the novel The Time of Contempt, which Lauren Schmidt Hissrich presents to TechRadar like his favorite book of the saga.
I have a feeling that seasons 1 and 2 kind of set the stage for the huge things to come.
Fans will have the pleasure of finding Jaskier, whose low screen time in season 2 generated some disappointment. According to showrunner, the bard will be present this time from the start of the third part. It even seems that the minstrel is about to share a lot of scenes with Ciri. The Scoia’tael will also have a major place in the rest of the series. If you ignored it, it isan army of elves fighting in the colors of Nilfgaard – hence the growing importance of this people in season 2. On a more sentimental note, season 3 should also be interested in sexuality and romantic relationships – especially queer – of several protagonists, including the young Ciri.
The witcher and available on Netflix.
