According to Henry Cavill himself, his character will show a more “Intellectual, philosophical and wise” and of course, more paternal. Traits that arise from having to take care of the young princess Cirilla, whom he will protect as if she were a daughter. “If I tell you to run. Run. If I tell you to hide. Hide Facing fear is not easy. But I will always be with you “. These are some of the phrases spoken by Geralt, which perfectly show that change that the actor talks about.
Although also, as De Rivia suggests, in one of the previews of season 2, it is the result of the relationship he had with Yennefer, who he says was the only one capable of removing that lone wolf armor, which he wore in the first eight episodes.

However, although the story of this new installment is more linear and will not have those temporary jumps that characterize the first season, they will enter the scene new characters willing to enrich the narrative.
One of the faces that you most want to see on the small screen is that of Vesemir, Geralt of Rivia’s mentor. Played by Kim Bodnia, this veteran sorcerer, will reappear in Geralt’s life, when he decides to take the young Ciri to the fortress of Kaer Morhen. A place, located in the middle of the mountains, where De Rivia was trained to be the sorcerer that he has become. A place, where much of the story will take place, so it is intuited that Vesemir will play an important role in this new installment.
In Kaer Morhen, where De Rivia spent part of his childhood, you can also meet other new faces for the new season. Eskel (Basil Eidenbenz), Geralt’s inseparable friend, during his childhood and youth, and another of Vesemir’s veteran apprentices. Coën (Yasen Atour), a sorcerer who connects from the first moment with the newcomer, Ciri. AND Lambert (Paul Bullion), one of the youngest warlocks in the fortress, who despite his unfriendly nature, will have no qualms about teaching Princess Cirilla to use her magic.
But these witches will not be the only ones to join the story. Priestess Nenneke (Adjoa Andoh), who has known Geralt since he was a young sorcerer’s apprentice; the sorceress Phillippa Eilhart (Cassie Clare); the leader of the Redanian resistance, Dijkstra (Graham McTavish); the Wizard Rience (Chris Fulton), tasked with finding Princess Ciri, and Levels (Kristofer Hivju), a man with a unique appearance, who could be key in Geralt’s mission, are some of the characters in the successful literary saga that will come to life in fiction. Keep their names, because soon they will show you their true faces.
More battles and powerful enemies
“Something has changed Geralt, the world is getting stranger. War between north and south. Monsters that attack instead of hibernate. Maybe it’s the end of the world “. With these words, Nivellen, one of the new characters in this second installment of The Witcher, warns Geralt of what is to come. An unprecedented war that will once again show the mastery of the sorcerer with swords, and that force that is capable of staging in the face of any adversity. A war that this time he will have to fight with his young apprentice, Princess Ciri.
If you thought that the witcher played by Cavill had faced the most ruthless creatures in the first season. Prepare to see him face an entourage of new monsters and bloodthirsty enemies. Among them, it is worth highlighting the Lamia, a terrifying presence with the appearance of a woman, which is capable of turning into a kind of giant bat; and to Leshy, an entity that lives in the forest and whose objective is only to end the life of everyone who crosses its path.
