With many delays and a global pandemic that hit all humanity in 2020, The Witcher’s season 2 has wrapped up the shoot. The Netflix show is based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s books which also later adapted into role-playing video games beginning in 2007. Since the first season of The Witcher became one of the biggest hits of Netflix (possible all-time), there is a lot at stake for season 2 of the fantasy saga.
Justice League star Henry Cavill who plays the Geralt of Rivia, gifted everyone wrap gifts as a souvenir for season 2. Actor Paul Bullion who is best known for playing the role of Billy Kitchen in the hit drama series “Peaky Blinders,” was all praise for Henry’s sweet gesture and took to Twitter showing off the gift from his fellow witcher brother.
The gift was the sigil of the show. He captioned the post:
“Well, would you look at that. Geralt tossing a coin to Lambert. Thanks, Henry. You’re a gent. It was quite the experience filming during a pandemic wasn’t it?!”
Well would you look at that. Geralt tossing a coin to Lambert.

Paul will be seen playing the role of Lambert in season 2, who is a fellow witcher of House of Wolf in Kaer Morhen.
Season 1 ended on a dramatic note as Geralt and Ciri-princess of the turbulent kingdom of Cintra unite. According to The Blood of Elves book, the story will now follow Geralt taking Ciri back to his home in Kaer Morhen to protect her and train her as a Witcher.
We will meet new Witchers in this season, and also Vesemir, who was a master to Geralt-will train Ciri as well. Yennefer and Geralt’s story can also be anticipated to converge again after she wins the battle of Sodden last season with her magic and grit.
Although the release date for season 2 has not been announced with the production in wraps, we can expect the season to premiere at the end of this year.
