The Witcher 2, So, if you were worried that the second season of Witcher will be darker and more intense than the first one and won’t have many songs. Then you have nothing to worry about anymore. Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich just stated in an interview that the second season of The Witcher will be even more musical than the first one. And it would contain “some pretty great songs.” Obviously, this is because of the success of “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher,” which was an absolute banger by the way.

Lauren stated in an interview “we obviously are incredibly proud of what we had done and you just hope that fans show up and embrace, you know, the way that you’re telling the story. We had great high hopes that there would be a song that stuck. This was of course the case with “Toss a Coin,” and Hissrich noted that even in the editing room, she and the sound team would “come back in the morning and everyone would be like, oh, that song was in my head all night. So we hoped it would have the same effect for fans.”

Lauren also confirmed that Jaskier will have more songs in the second season and it confirms more screen time for him. So it is a win-win situation to be fair. She also hinted that one of the songs “is a great moment for Angela’s character.” She didn’t say much because of the spoilers. She also confirmed that Ciri will have a more strong role in the second season.

The Witcher 2: Fate Of Yennefer

Apart from that the panel also included Anya Chalotra who talks a bit about her character as well without giving away any major spoilers.

“After her victory at the Battle of Sodden Hill, she’s captured in whereabouts unknown, and she has to survive being a prisoner of war. Um, we know who that she meets Ciri in this season. Which is exciting. She goes back to Aretuza and she has to navigate that situation there after everyone thought she had died. Um, and we just get a lot deeper into Yennifer’s mind. I mean, what’s lovely is that we established the background in Season 1 and now I think the choices she makes in Season 2 will resonate with people a lot more and hopefully they’ll be able to emphasize empathize with them with those choices.”

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.
