Who better to celebrate the cavalcade of monsters that Halloween has brought than The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia? I mean, unless you want the monsters to live, in which case Geralt is probably a bad idea. But I digress.
Halloween may be over, but the treats have not quite run out. Consider this video, “Geralt’s Monster Mash,” released late yesterday by Netflix. On the surface, it’s a silly montage of Geralt dueling monsters set to the Halloweeniest banger around, “Monster Mash.” But under the surface, it has exciting hints for season two in the form of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpses at new monsters in the Continent’s magical menagerie.

I’m a casual fan but no expert, so, please, fanatics and witchers-in-training, let me know what we’re looking at. This is, I do believe, the first official video footage released of the show’s second season.

You know, the whole Witcher experience.

The Witcher season 2 is planned for release next year. Hat tip to Collider for finding this.
