The latest images revealed the first look of Vesemir!!
TUDUM strikes once again and gives us one of the best things related to The Witcher Season 2. Vesemir was featured in the “Road to Season 2” trailer of The Witcher released at TUDUM. And that took me by surprise because Vesemir is coming in his own anime. Obviously, this Vesemir is really old compared to the one we will get in the anime.
Netflix later tweeted a picture also showcasing the first look of Vesemir. The tweet read “It’s the year of Vesemir! Welcome Kim Bodnia as the oldest surviving witcher and Geralt’s beloved mentor, making his debut in The Witcher Season 2.”
Vesemir is Geralt’s mentor. Everything Geralt knows has been taught to him by Vesemir only. And all the fans that have been following novels and games know how important he is to the franchise. . When Geralt brings Ciri to Kaer Morhen, Vesemir plays a large role in her training in becoming a Witcher as well as guiding Geralt in his growing role as her father figure. So, if the show follows the same routine, it will be really exciting to see how all of this will turn out.
The Witcher Season 2: Plot
The official synopsis of the second season reads “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.”
The second season of the show will start right where the first season ended. Ciri is with Geralt now and Yennefer is finding her own path and herself. The trailer showed us that only. Ciri has escaped the capital with Geralt and now Geralt will take care of her. Geralt took her with him to Kaer Morhen, A place which she can call home. Where Geralt will train Ciri to fight her own fears and maybe control her powers. It will be a hard path as there will be lots and lots of problems in their way, but they will find a way to survive together.

The Witcher Season 2: What To Expect?
I don’t know exactly what to expect from the second season yet. But one thing for sure is that it will be really intense. Definitely more intense than the first season. It will be clear once the main trailer is out. Personally, I am looking forward to Yeneffer’s arc the most. That arc really impressed me last time around and I am hoping they do something similar with her this time around too. So, I am hoping that we will get to see a little bit of Yeneffer in the second trailer.
