The One Character 25% Of People Want More Of In The Witcher Season 2

After such a successful first season for Netflix's fantasy drama The Witcher, there's a lot to be excited for in season 2. Based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski, the story follows Geralt of Rivia, a member of a race called witchers, trained in magic and other skills to hunt monsters. The Witcher stars Henry Cavill in the title role, alongside Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg and Freya Allan as Princess Ciri. 

The first season of The Witcher premiered on December 20, 2019, and was a huge success. Although it has seen a significant delay because of coronavirus cases and production shutdowns, the second season is well on its way. The original plan for a release date was sometime in 2021, but with the production delays, that doesn't seem likely. As of right now, only a few details are known about the plot of the upcoming episodes aside from a couple casting announcements, and small sneak peeks of scripts and official season 2 images. With little to go on, fans are left to their own imagination to envision what awaits in the further adventures of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, once the second season of The Witcher finally rolls out.

Curious as to what exactly audiences want to see in season 2, Looper asked people what specific character they hope to see more of. And for The Witcher fans, the top answer might surprise you.

The Witcher fans hope to see more of Triss Merigold in season 2

Played by Anna Shaffer, Triss Merigold is a sorceress like Yennefer. She also happens to be the character the most fans voted that they wanted to see more of in The Witcher's second season. 

In season 1, Triss encounters Geralt when she asks for his help stopping a creature terrorizing the kingdom of Temeria, later revealed to be a striga. She is later also present at the strategy meetings of the mages, as they figure out what to do with Nilfgaard. When the Nilfgaardian army attacks during the Battle at Sodden Hill, Triss uses her powerful magic to defend the keep from the Nilfgaards and cut off their invasion of the Northern kingdoms.

According to our poll, 24.77% of people voted for Triss over any other The Witcher character. 

Quite a few points behind her, then, were fan favorite characters like Jaskier and Dara. Now, it's likely a lot of fans simply saw Triss in season 1 and were intrigued to learn more. But others who voted for her might be hoping to see more of the character's story from the book series: In the novels, Triss is friends with both Yennefer and Geralt. She has a short tryst with Geralt and develops strong feelings for him, though he doesn't feel the same way. Triss also looks after Ciri at Kaer Morhen, the place where Geralt trained to be a witcher, and a location that will be heavily featured in season 2.
