The Witcher Season 2, Geralt of Rivia is ‘More Intellectual’
“Mistakes are also important to me, and I don’t cross them out of my life or memory. And I never blame others for them.” – Geralt of Rivia.
The Witcher, an American Series, a fantasy drama created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, was released on Netflix. The foundation of the plot is taken from the books of Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher included the most favorite character Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter. The struggles of the life of Geralt Witcher are portrayed in the series.
Famous for the Super Man role, Henry Cavill is the Geralt in the Witcher series. He is a professional monster hunter who earns money by defeating monsters. The character in season one was primarily quiet; he is known as a man of few words. One of the many relationships in the show, Geralt and Yennefer, reveals his different side throughout season one. In his other relationship with Jaskier, he was cold and distant, loved by the fans.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich depicts the Geralt Character as a Witcher who generally likes to be independent; however, he curses things while performing the tasks. The character is resistant to his fate but eventually accepts his destiny. And fans must have observed, despite all the challenges in relationships, he always cared for the closest ones.

“I really worked very hard to make him more intelligent, have an expanded vocabulary, and be representative of a guy 70-plus years old.” – Henry Cavill spoke to SFX Magazine.
Henry Cavill commented about his character that he had tried to make it “more intellectual’, making it more accurate to the surface in Andrzej’s Books. He has researched Geralt Witcher a lot and put in a lot of hard work to make it book-accurate in the Witcher Season 2.
Witcher Season 2 release date is 17 December 2021. In this season, Geralt will be seen in various places, and he will take Ciri under his wing. Geralt gives training to Ciri and protects her too. He will encounter Yennefer and Jaskier during his journey, some good friends, and get in some challenging situations. All the encounters can state why Geralt of Rivia, the man of few words in season one, will speak more in The Witcher Season 2.
Henry Cavil described Geralt of Rivia as a “grumpy snowman” in The Witcher Season 1. And it is possible that in the upcoming premiere of Season 2, fans will uncover his more personal side while maintaining the balance between the monster hunter personality shown earlier.
Well, more talkative Geralt doesn’t mean a happy Geralt; as Cavill mentions, the character won’t be cheerier. Henry states that the monster-hunting is hard, and because of that, the challenges he will be facing in future endeavors make him more intellectual.
Some of the audience in Season 1 was dissatisfied with the Geralt personality depicted in the series. Geralt has been portrayed as a more friendly and affectionate character in Andrzej’s books. With The Witcher Season 2, Henry Cavill assures the viewers that he has tried to make this character similar to the one in novels. And with Geralt of Rivia being more intellectual, it will become fascinating to see him grow from his adventures.
