The Witcher was one of the best series of 2019. It is based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski and is set in a fiction world known as The Continent. The Witcher was a big hit, and the audience is eagerly waiting for the next season. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming season.
The second season will continue with the storyline of the main characters. The first season was adapted from The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, which are a collection of short stories. The next season will follow events from the novel Blood of Elves. As per the books, Geralt will be training Ciri and will also be protecting her from the Nilfgaard army.
