"'It may turn out,’ said the white-haired man a moment later, ‘that their comrades or cronies may ask what befell these evil men. Tell them the Wolf bit them. The White Wolf. And add that they should keep glancing over their shoulders. One day they’ll look back and see the Wolf.’" – From the writings of Andrzej Sapkowski @WitcherNetflix #Witcher2

Witcher Season 2 Plot and Cast Details
The Witcher Season 2 will most likely follow closely to the author Andrezj Sapkowski’s The Witcher fantasy series.
The second season will follow the book The Witcher book Blood of Elves; in the plot of Blood of Elves, Geralt will take Ciri to his home in Kaer Morhen, where Geralt will train Ciri to fight. And as for Yennefer, we think although they have parted ways in the season finale still, we can expect them to reunite once again with Geralt and finally meet Ciri as well. That would be another reunion to witness for sure.
In Season 2, there will be a lot of new characters introduced in the star cast. One of the most popular news we have got is that the game of thrones star Kristopher Hivju who portrayed Tormond Giantsbane on Game of Thrones, will join in the cast for Witcher Season 2, and he will portray a character named Nivellen.
