Will The Witcher season 2 offer fans more clarity? The showrunner plans some changes to the timeline.
If the showrunneuse intends to offer a more full-bodied intrigue to the bad guys in season 2 of The Witcher, it’s not the only thing she plans to change. The first part of the heroic-fantasy show was criticized for its complexity in terms of chronologies. Lauren S. Hissrich had chosen to intertwine three different eras until halfway through the show, which did not make it easier to understand certain passages. If she had already justified herself on her choice, the showrunneuse promises that this season 2 will offer more clarity, as she explains to The Wrap : “It’s obvious now that this is one of the most discussed elements of season 1. But I still think it was a good decision to tell the story. The goal was to know these three characters (Ciri, Geralt and Yennefer) individually, and the only way to do that was to separate their three timelines. The cool thing is that they met now. So in Season 2, all of our characters will exist in the same space- this will allow us to play with time in a slightly different way. ”
If season 2 will therefore be more linear and easier to understand, this does not prevent that scenes of flashbacks are integrated in order to make the intrigue and the assembly more dynamic : “We can always do flashbacks and flashforwards, because we now have the possibility of using the time very differently than in season 1. So I think it will be easier to follow and understand this time for the public. But rest assured, there will always be a fun use of time in the sequel to The Witcher. ” As you can see, the next episodes will therefore take place in a single epoch, but the complexity of the scenario will not be abandoned. If we still don’t know when season 2 of The Witcher will be released, shooting may resume soon!
