Netflix has released a new teaser for season 2 of The Witcher in which we get a first look at one of the disgusting new monsters Geralt is going to fight. In a new short clip shared by the streamer on social media, we see the valiant Witcher (played by Henry Cavill) face off against a giant bug. Called the Myriapod, this mutant-earwig-looking thing can be seen attacking Geralt in the forest. But most interesting is what Geralt uses to defend himself.
In addition to his usual sword, Geralt is using a Quen sign to create a temporary shield. His weapon also seems to light up in an orange glow and might be in some enchanted state in order to defeat the beast. And if this foe isn’t scary enough, fans of the video game saga will be familiar with an even bigger version of the monster called the Viy of Maribor. So that’s a nightmare ready to meet you tonight.
To find out just how Geralt plans to squish an insect that can throw him across a forest (maybe he can conjure a giant cup?) we will have to wait until the new season starts streaming, which won’t be long now.
The Witcher season 2 OTT Release Date, Digital Rights
The eight episodes of The Witcher season 2 are set to continue the story of the eponymous, monster-hunting Geralt of Rivia, played once again by big-screen Superman Henry Cavill.
The season 1 finale ensured that the show’s (sometimes confusing) multiple timelines are now aligned, uniting Geralt with orphaned princess Ciri (Freya Allan) – just as their respective destinies decreed. We’re also guessing it won’t be too long before they cross paths with the show’s third viewpoint character, the mage known as Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra).
