The Witcher Season 2 Will Be Less Confusing Than Season 1 Says Showrunner

It’s been revealed by The Witcher’s showrunner that Season 2 of the new hit Netflix fantasy series will be far less confusing than Season 1.

I really enjoyed the first season of The Witcher, but I have to be honest, I didn’t really get what was happening most of the time.

The reason for this confusion was due to its non-linear timeline.

Things were happening and you had no means of knowing when they were taking place.

This was due to the fact that not much was explained.

I’m sure that if you’ve read the books, then you would have been fine.

However, for all those people who hadn’t spent the time reading The Witcher books or even playing the video games, we were all a bit lost.

That said, it seems as though the show’s showrunner, Lauren S. Hissrich has heard people’s complaints and she’s revealed that Season 2 won’t be as confusing as the first season of Netflix’s latest hit show.

Here’s what she told Collider about The Witcher Season 2 and how they plan on making it less confusing for viewers:

Obviously, it was one of the most controversial parts of Season 1 and I didn’t expect it to be as controversial as it was. But it’s something I still stand behind, in terms of storytelling… What’s great though is [the characters] have intersected now. So what we’ll see in Season 2 is that all of our characters are existing on the same timeline. What that allows us to do storywise though is to play with time in slightly different ways. We get to do flashbacks, we get to do flash-forwards, we get to actually integrate time in a completely different way that we weren’t able to do in Season 1.

Hissrich also teased the introduction of more Witchers in Season 2:

Probably my favorite additions for Season 2 are the new witchers,” she continued. “Really, in Season 1, we got to know Geralt and he’s our prime example of a witcher. And then there is one other witcher, Remus, who we meet in Episode 103, who quickly dies. So it was, for us really, about getting Geralt back to his roots and sort of learning where he came from and what his story is and what his sense of family is.
