According to the synopsis for the second season, Geralt is convinced that Yennefer has died following the epic battle at the end of season one.
“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,” it reads.
“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”, it added.
Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich in an interview with Digital Spy last year opened up about season 2 could go, revealing that season one was about “building blocks”.
“It’s about constructing the world, and setting up these characters, and putting them on paths, and knocking those dominoes over,” she said.
“When you get to season 2, all of those things start to come to play, which is that characters start meeting each other – sometimes getting along, sometimes not.
“All those things that we set up – Geralt and Yennefer; Geralt and Ciri; Yennefer and Ciri; all of the different kingdoms that you just barely hear about in season one, start rising to the surface in season 2.
“So the storytelling is a little more intense in a way, and maybe a little more focused and driven in the journeys that we’re telling in season 2″, she added.
