Yennefer, who is in charge of the magical training of Ciri’s magical training, takes her to the sheltered fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to find out more about the girl’s untapped powers. Instead, they find they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. You have to fight back, risk everything – or risk losing yourself forever.
Season 2 is one of Netflix’s greatest hits
To produce this series of episodes of The Witcher, the company surrounds itself with directors who have worked on series produced or broadcast by Netflix. So we have: Stephen Surjik (Reacher, The Umbrella Academy), Gandja Monteiro (Brand New Cherry Flavor, The Chi), Loni Peristere (American Horror Story, A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Bola Ogun (Raising Dion, Lucifer).
Good news for fans after the long wait for Season 2, which took everything in its path despite the production problems linked to the Covid. With more than 540 million hours watched in the first 28 days, it is among the top 10 most watched series on the platform, ahead of mainstream programs such as Emily in Paris or You.
