Talking about which character he would like to see developed further, Cavill highlighted Nenneke, an important character from the books who is described as part of Geralt’s “chosen family”.
“To be true to the books, I think there is a chance to explore the Nenneke relationship a little further,” says Cavill. “Of course I would love to work with the Witchers longer, but it all depends on how much history allows. I’m a huge fan of the books, and stick around with them, and the point is that the story should happen without “too many distractions or trivia to cloud the water.”

Geralt spends most of the second season with Ciri, his surrogate daughter. He also meets with Yennefer, who has her own plans for Ciri to regain her powers.
Regarding Geralt’s relationship with Yennefer at the end of the season, Cavill said, “I mean [Yennefer’s actions were] pretty extreme so it’s hard to forgive. It’s going to take some work, some nuance, some complexity. “
Anya Chalotra, who portrays Yennefer in The Witcher, also had thoughts about which direction she thinks Yennefer will take in the third season of The Witcher. “It’s habit, isn’t it? She’s how old and she’s lived the life she lived and you know the rules that she lives by and that’s the end and she doesn’t trust anyone and it.” is … It will be hard to just immerse yourself in a new way of being. She may have learned to think things through more, but right now, in such a violent world, you have to take care of yourself too. ”
