For starters, since he’s duty-bound to guard Princess Cirilla of Cintra (Freya Allan), he’s reluctantly taken on a fatherly function. And when the season kicks off, Geralt and Ciri are journeying to the distant Witcher residence base, Kaer Morhen, so Ciri can obtain coaching to defend herself.
As soon as there, a brand new facet of Geralt emerges. “You get to see a vulnerability in him. You get to see the teasing between siblings, and the protectiveness of a father,” says showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich of the Witchers’ family-like dynamic and Geralt’s personal powerful parental determine, Vesemir (Kim Bodnia).
“Nivellen is cursed, imprisoned on this boar-meets-bear-meets-human physique, and haunted by his previous,” Hivju teases of the story, paying homage to Magnificence and the Beast. Tales like these instructed in these episodes are “in all probability a bit of bit extra intense than Season 1,” says Hissrich. “We lean into suspense, horror and people darker parts a bit of bit extra closely.” Simply what we wish.
