The release date for The Witcher season 2 is on our doorstep, with Henry Cavill back in fighting form as Geralt of Rivia, slaying monsters left right and centre.
The Netflix series has expanded the already huge fanbase of the stories even more since its release in 2019, especially thanks to the portrayals of fan-favourite characters, including Anya Chalotra as sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg.
