Nothing much about the plot was revealed by Netflix, but we have some information. Season 2 might pick from where season 1 ended. Season 2 might focus more on the life of Princess of Cintra “Ciri.” Yennefer might lose his life in a battle. Geralt of Rivia will bring Princess Cirilla to his childhood home Kaer Morhen.
