The Witcher Season 1 was a fascinating exercise in adaptation, figuring out how to work in backstories of character from multiple sources. But though the result was a puzzle of timelines, not everyone was into trying to figure out what happened when. The number one complaint from fans was that the interwoven strands were too hard to follow and unnecessarily complicated. But showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has promised going forward the story will be more straightforward. These The Witcher Season 2 details explain how she plans to continue the story.
One reason Hissrich chose to interweave three different timelines together was the straightforward story from the short stories and novels would otherwise have left both Ciri and Yennefer out of Season 1 almost entirely. Hissrich wanted to make sure the opening season introduced all three main characters — Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer — properly. This way, fans could form their own opinions and feelings about Ciri and Yennefer without having those opinions colored by meeting them through Geralt’s eyes, as they are in the books.
But now that all three primary characters are firmly established, it’s time to bring them together. As Hissrich puts it, it’s time for them to "come together as a family."
Speaking to The Wrap, Hissrich explains that this formation of a found family is the heart of the series.
But most of all, the relationship she’s looking forward to focusing on is between Geralt and Ciri.
The Witcher Season 2 is slated to arrive on Netflix sometime in 2021.
