The Witcher Showrunner Reveals Her Favorite Season 2 Characters
Our boy Henry Cavill is likely going to have to stop playing as himself in Total War: Warhammer 2, as recent rumors have suggested that Netflix’s The Witcher series will be resuming production on Season 2 soon. Thankfully, it appears that both cast and crew are more than excited to see what Season 2 brings to the table, with showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich recently revealing who her favorite characters are coming into the next season.
Recently speaking to The Wrap about who she’s most excited to bring to life on the small screen for Season 2 of Netflix’s The Witcher, Hissrich revealed that she’s particularly thrilled for the new Witchers. “Probably my favorite additions for Season 2 are the new witchers,” Hissrich explained. “Really, in Season 1, we got to know Geralt and he’s our prime example of a witcher. And then there is one other witcher, Remus, who we meet in Episode 103, who quickly dies.”
So it was, for us really, about getting Geralt back to his roots and sort of learning where he came from and what his story is and what his sense of family is.”
As viewers may recall, Witchers are decidedly few and far between during the events of the first season of The Witcher. These ‘new’ Witchers are in fact the ones that helped raise Geralt when he was a boy, with Kim Bodnia’s Vesemir in particular acting as a father figure for the White Wolf. “When I talk about The Witcher,” Hissrich explains, “I always talk about how these three characters coming together — Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer — they come together as a family. It’s the most important part of the series for me. And when you start to imagine someone’s family, you also need to understand their family of origin. Sometimes that’s a mother and father, sometimes that’s blood relatives.”
For Geralt, it’s his brothers, it’s the brotherhood of the witchers. So I’m really excited to get back in and meet Vesemir, his father figure, for the first time and all of these men that he was raised with since he was seven years old.”
Here’s hoping it won’t be too long before we get our hands on Season 2.
