The central figure of the narrative in this fantastic TV project is a fearless and independent young man who had to assist peaceful people. He has a strong and bold character, so he is not afraid to get involved in controversial situations and restore justice. Geralt lives in a remarkable place, where various evil creatures dwell. Among the local population, one can easily come across ruthless monsters that threaten the well-being of citizens. The young man is from Rivia and does not want to silently observe lawlessness in the world. He intends to influence the current situation. The heartlessness and cruelty of ordinary mortals force The Witcher to abandon unfinished business and embark on an interesting journey. His path leads to the colorful kingdom called Cintra, which is ruled by influential individuals. The man learns about the kidnapping of a high-ranking person.

The continuation of the fantasy, based on the eponymous novel by Andrzej Sapkowski, will tell about Geralt's fate after the capture of Cintra. The second season will be an adaptation of the book "Blood of Elves".

After Ciri was rescued and brought to Kaer Morhen, her intensive training with the witchers begins. The girl turned out to be very gifted, and in order to fully realize all the magical abilities of the heiress to the throne of Cintra, Geralt turns to the sorceress Triss. She explains that Yennefer's help will also be needed to fully master the abilities of magic.

A new war is being prepared on the continent, led by all the kings of the North, who have joined forces against the Emperor of the South. Southerners will do everything in their power to destroy Ciri, who has become a key figure in the conquest of lands. Viewers will finally learn why Nilfgaard wanted to capture Cintra so badly.

Several brutal raids are being prepared on Kaer Morhen, which has become a refuge for Ciri.

Meanwhile, Lutik returns to The Witcher to help him in his main mission - to find and exterminate evil creatures and monsters.
