The Witcher season 2 is all set to return tomorrow on Netflix OTT. It has been two years since the first season's release & it is highly likely that some people might've forgotten about a lot. For viewers' convenience, we've compiled a short version of The Witcher season 1 recap.
The Witcher Season 1 Recap: Geralt of Rivia, a brooding professional monster hunter for hire also known as the witcher, fights to maintain his humanity in a medieval dark fantasy world ruled by corrupt kings, queens, and mages, where poverty, violence, and intolerance are rampant, normal humans are sometimes worse than actual monsters, and most well-paying jobs involve the darkest of human emotions and desires.
Yennefer of Vengerberg is a vain mage who began with nothing and now desires everything. Princess Cirilla, also known as Ciri, is a young girl who may or may not is endowed with a mysterious power.
Their fates, which appear to be very different, slowly entwine in a cosmic fashion. Jaskier the bard, Geralt's endearingly annoying friend and hype man who has vowed to spread the word of his heroics across the continent, even if he has to embellish them a little for a few more coins, Tissaia de Vries, Yennefer's secretive mentor who believes in tough love, and Triss Merigold, a good-natured druidic mage and a trustworthy friend is among their companions.
The sudden brutal invasion of the Nilfgaardian Empire into Cintra, the kingdom ruled by Cirilla's protective grandmother, warrior queen Calanthe, puts their lives in grave danger. For those who want to understand the entire Witcher story in 15 minutes, here's The Witcher season 1 Recap (Video Version) for you.
