This Thursday, the 18th, Schmidt Hissrich, showrunner of The Witcher, spoke about Ciri’s journey during Season 2 of the series. Hissrich participated in a TCA panel alongside Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra, protagonists of the program.
During the event, Hissrich talked about character development and Allan’s performance during the recordings. “Part of the journey between Ciri and Geralt this season also involved training to be a witch,” he said.
“Freya sent me videos of her learning to fight with swords, even before we started production on the second season. The stunt team was surprised because she is a natural. You’re so fearless on this show, both emotionally and physically,” Hissrich told Allan.
In addition, according to Hissrich, the new season of the series will bet on the performance of its strong and fearless female characters. “It’s just something given to us. We get the scripts, and then our characters have this amazing arc. This is about women having the same story. We’re not just there to help with Henry’s plot,” he said.
Season 2 of The Witcher is set to premiere on December 17th on Netflix.
