Netflix’s The Witcher season two may be some way away from our screens (presumably), but that doesn’t mean we don’t know what to expect! Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich recently opened up about what we’ll be seeing from the show’s second season, and it’s sounding like it’s going to be a lot more Ciri-focused.
Chatting with TVGuide, Hissrich confessed that’s Ciri’s story was too big to be fully explored in the first season, but that’s set to change with the next batch of episodes.
“I think one of the things that, of course, happens when you are adapting material is that you have these eight episodes, they’re an hour long each, [and] we had much more of Ciri’s story in Season 1 that we ended up having to trim down. And it’s one of the things that when I look at the season, I see she’s not as present, Ciri’s not as present as I would have liked her to be.
“So in Season 2, we’re really digging in with her character and we’re going to understand her a lot more. And yes, that growth that you’re describing, where she starts training, where she actually becomes the character that we know from the books and later from the video games, we will see her become that person. But she doesn’t change on a dime. What we don’t want to do is forget where she came from.”
We don’t yet know when The Witcher’s new season will be on the streaming platform, as production saw a hefty delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Production has once again begun after a break of nearly three months, so hopefully we’ll start to hear more news on The Witcher soon! It’s expected to be out sometime in 2021.
