“Toss a coin to your Witcher…”
The Witcher season 2 premiered on Netflix on December 17th 2021 with eight episodes available to stream now. The fantasy action series stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra.
Geralt of Rivia is back as he shows off his monster-fighting skills while trying to protect the young princess Ciri from countless threats.
Here is the trailer:
The Witcher provides us with plenty of monsters, magic, and gore while allowing its characters a chance at true self-discovery and redemption. ls season two worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
I really loved the development of Ciri in season two. She felt like a plot device in season one for a lot of the time and I actually felt like I got to know her this time around.
Those training sessions reminded me of Buffy!
True character growth.
I didn’t think there would be a lot of growth for Geralt but boy was I wrong. I really loved the interactions between the core four characters and I thought we witnessed some true growth and transformation. Redemption was earned for some and others went through pain and loss.
All of the emotions were real and I really loved the bonds formed between some of the characters. It connected me to the show that much more and really elevated it in a lot of ways.
A lot of sub-plots to keep track of…
I had the same issue with the first season. The pacing works for the most part and there is enough action to keep you entertained, but when I started to actually think about what was going on with some of the sub-plots, I felt a bit lost.
I thought the first half of the season had a darker tone, but the fun picked up starting in episode four and I thought the pacing stayed on track from there, however.
So am I in or out?
I thoroughly enjoyed season two and I think it’s safe to say that I am a fan for life of The Witcher. The characters are really the best part of the show for me and I absolutely loved going on this journey with them!
