The Witcher season 2 is quite well known. The entire cast, including Vesemir, is now confirmed, and many reports and quotes point to a different but equally enticing story in 2021.
The release date of Witcher season 2 may not have been confirmed, but we have a good idea of when it will be released on Netflix. That means the Netflix series will theoretically expand on what was a strong opening salvo back in 2019 when combined with news of a more linear and “oriented” schedule and more monsters than you could shaker in a silver blade.
Geralt’s Past And The Origin Of Witcher
Geralt’s origins in The Witcher are as horrific as a child can be presumed to be exposed to mutations that could destroy them. Geralt was born to sorceress Visenna, and while his father is unidentified, he was presumably the guerrilla Korin, two strong personalities. Geralt was left to his mother after being born at Kaer Morhen, the Witcher training school.
There, he learned and was transformed into a witcher by the Grass Trial, where young children undergo mutations which make them faster and more reliable, to fight monsters better. Just three out of ten boys survive this process, but Geralt is surprisingly tolerant of the disease, which prompted further study and more mutations. That’s how his hair turned white.
The name of Geralt was also one selected by him. Geralt chose the name Geralt Roger Eric du Haute-Bellegarde in his novels, but his mentor Vesemir thought that the name had become too stupid, and Geralt had been bound to it. Later Geralt received his name “of Rivia” not because of where he came from but because of his bravery in the battle for the Yaruga Bridge, which was knighted by the Queen of Lyria.
Witcher mutations tend to make the people suffering from them less compassionate, which is why Geralt is grumpy and frank but has also shown more charm, empathy, and love than the typical witchers would anticipate-because of his tolerance to mutations as well.
Season 2 Of The Witcher
In season 1 of The Witcher, fans didn’t get many looks of the Geralt’s past and the actual origin of Witcher. We didn’t even know much about the other Witchers out there. Season 2 might be an answer for that, and we hope that it covers Geralt’s past, along with the origin of Witcher.
