Recent set photos from Henry Cavill’s The Witcher revealed that the Wild Hunt is coming to the upcoming Netflix series.
While the first season of The Witcher ended with Henry Cavill’s Geralt finding Ciri after her momentous journey across the Continent, it seems like he’ll have a much more difficult job protecting her from a new set of villains who are seemingly heading to the show for the second season. Previous set photos saw Ciri actress Freya Allan in a practical costume practicing at Kaer Morhen (a castle that houses the witchers of the School of the Wolf) so she’ll likely have some fighting of her own to do. But the most recent batch of pictures tease the arrival of the Wild Hunt, a group of elves from another world.
Their sole purpose is to pillage other worlds to capture slaves for the Alder people, and they take aim at Ciri because of her Elder blood. Invaders from other worlds seems like a bit of an escalation from the first season, but it’ll be interesting to see how Henry Cavill’s Geralt deals with their threat. The photos from The Witcher fansite, Redanian Intelligence, show the ethereal horse riders filming on a beach in the U.K. Take a look below.
