Netflix’s hit fantasy show The Witcher will be easier to follow in its second season, according to showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.

While the series starring Henry Cavill attracted a huge fanbase upon its release, a number of those fans complained that the multiple timelines were confusing.

Speaking to The Wrap, Hissrich said: “Obviously, it was one of the most controversial parts of season one and I didn’t expect it to be as controversial as it was. But it’s something I still stand behind, in terms of storytelling…


“What’s great though is [the characters] have intersected now. So what we’ll see in season two is that all of our characters are existing on the same timeline. What that allows us to do story-wise though is to play with time in slightly different ways. We get to do flashbacks, we get to do flash-forwards, we get to actually integrate time in a completely different way that we weren’t able to do in season one.”

During the interview, Hissrich also teased the introduction of new Witchers, including Gerald’s (Cavill) mentor, Vesemir. Danish actor Kim Bodnia of The Bridge and Killing Eve fame has been cast in the role.

“Probably my favourite additions for season two are the new Witchers,” she said. “Really, in season one, we got to know Geralt and he’s our prime example of a Witcher. And then there is one other witcher, Remus, who we meet in Episode 103, who quickly dies.

“So it was, for us really, about getting Geralt back to his roots and sort of learning where he came from and what his story is and what his sense of family is.”

Production on season two of The Witcher was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it was recently reported that the show has been given the green light to continue.

Season one is available to watch now on Netflix.
