Netflix The Witcher has delivered what fans worldwide have been asking for: A sweeping story with many plotlines from the books and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game. Now The Witcher Season 2 is about to be released and the dream come true continues based on the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Today, we at PLITCH are taking a closer look at what has happened so far and are offering you something special to celebrate the start of the second season.

Summary of the first season
without spoilers

If you haven't had time to watch the first season of The Witcher, or you don't remember the events clearly, we'll give you a brief summary without spoilers.

In season one of The Witcher, the series delivered many key moments and key points of the novel series. But the video game adaptation by game developer CD Projekt Red, who made the successful video game series The Witcher breathtakingly famous, especially with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, also has its moments.

During the eight hours of the series, it takes you into the universe of The Witcher. You follow in the footsteps of Geralt, the Witcher of Rivia, starting with what he does best: Killing monsters. In keeping with the series, the game opens with a fight between Geralt and a Kikimora. Known as a sorcerer, the mutant monster hunter is on a quest to find himself and his place in the world.

In the process, he meets Ciri, a mysterious princess, and Yennefer, a powerful mage who, like Geralt, holds the fate of the world in her hands. However, Yennefer quickly feels neglected and finds a way to escape. Away from this, things are not going well for Geralt either. He does not manage to hunt down a so-called devil. Ciri, on the other hand, tries to calm herself down with numbers and seeks security in them.

Frustrated by failure, however, Geralt quickly accepts an unfinished assignment from a sorcerer who had failed in his work. In the process, he visits a kingdom terrified by wild beasts. Yennefer, meanwhile, pays a high price for her new magical future. Geralt's journey continues and, against his better judgement, he is on his way to a royal ball with Jaskier, the bard.

Meanwhile, Yennefer's protégés take centre stage and need her full attention. Ciri, on the other hand, is on her way to an enchanted forest. After Ciri seems to have disappeared, the search for her is intensified and Geralt puts Yennefer in danger. Yennefer, on the other hand, once again shrugs off good advice and sets out on a dangerous recovery.

While Ciri now no longer knows who she can trust, a mysterious person tries to convince Geralt to help him hunt down a rampaging dragon. In the process, he meets a familiar. In the meantime, the power of Nilfgaard grows and Yennefer can no longer deny her past. She questions her responsibility and her relationship with Geralt.

The latter, however, goes into hiding in view of the crowd of enemies. Ciri, troubled and confused, finds apparent familiarity in the kindness of a stranger. Yennefer and the other wizards, however, are prepared not to surrender to Nilfgaard's superiority without a fight.
