Anya Chalotra is terrified of spoilers. That’s one of the first things that she tells me on a video call in August, just moments after wrapping up a Television Critics Association panel about the highly anticipated second season of The Witcher with creator and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissirch and co-star Freya Allan.
“I can barely string a sentence together anyway,” she said with a laugh. “I find it so hard to articulate myself. And then I have to throw spoilers into the mix, and I’m like, ‘Don’t do this to me!’ I don’t know how to section off information in my head and be able to just say the one thing that I’m supposed to say, so that’s why I keep hush-hush most of the time. Until it’s out. Then I can be a blabbermouth.”
Chalotra can finally blab all she likes. Two years after debuting in 76 million households on Netflix, The Witcher returned on December 17th with another eight-episode season, picking up in the immediate aftermath of the bloody and gruesome Battle of Sodden Hill.
Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s best-selling book series, the hit fantasy drama series centers on Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), a solitary and magically enhanced monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward Yennefer of Vengerberg (Chalotra), a powerful mage, and Princess Cirilla of Cintra (Allan), a young royal with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
