The Witcher's second season is set to be action-packed as Geralt of Rivia will bring Princess Cirilla to a safe place – his childhood home, Kaer Morhen – as he's convinced Yennefer died at the Battle of Sodden.

As the Continent's people and supernatural creatures strive for power, Geralt of Rivia finds out that he needs to protect Princess Cirilla from her own mysterious abilities.
