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.
