We have a new official look at The Witcher season 2. Netflix revealed two new photos of Henry Cavill as Geralt on social media. The images not only show Cavill back in blonde but they also reveal his new beefy, black armor. Have a look.

The images were shared with the caption, “His emotional shield can ward off any charmer, but his trusted sword he’ll wield, will be matched with new armour. And what will destiny bring tomorrow?”
The cast includes Freya Allan (Ciri,) Anya Chalotra (Yennefer), Jodhi May (Queen Calanthe), Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson (Eist), Adam Levy (Mousesack), MyAnna Buring (Aretuza), and Millie Brady (Princess Renfri), Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read. Newcomers for season 2 Kim Bodnia as Vesemir, Kristofer Hivju as Nivellen, Yasen Atour as Coen, Agnes Born as Vereena, Paul Bullion as Lambert, Basil Eidenbenz as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross as Lydia and Mecia Simson as Francesca.
Here is the official synopsis for The Witcher season 2.
“Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
The show proved to be a huge hit for Netflix when it debuted last year. It is now becoming a full-fledged franchise. Not only do we have another season of the main show, but a spin-off has been ordered, in addition to a feature-length animated movie.
Production for the show’s sophomore season was interrupted earlier this year. Like many productions, given the coronavirus pandemic, Netflix had to halt filming on the series for several months. But production is back up and running again. It is expected that season 2 will arrive sometime in 2021.
Cavill is expected to be busy with his commitments on The Witcher for some time. What that means for his status as Superman in the DCEU remains to be seen. We haven’t seen Cavill suit up since Justice League in 2017 but there are persistent reports that he will be returning as the Man of Steel down the line. It just remains unclear how that will happen or when it will happen.
The Witcher season 2 does not yet have a release date set.
