Netflix Leaked The Script From The Witcher Season 2 And Fans Are Freaking Out
We have been waiting with bated breath for the new series of The Witcher after bingeing the eight-part series last year, and now, it seems season two is on the horizon.
Streaming giant Netflix, which became the home of the beloved video game adaption when the first season was released last year, has leaked a part of the script for the second season.
And the new helping only seems to build on themes of violence and horror which had us gripped the first time round.
The scene sees a merchant, with the punchy name of Colin Coppercloth, carrying his wife Meena and daughter Kira through a deep, dense forest.
The mighty Geralt (played by Man of Steel star Henry Cavill) provides a voiceover for the spooky scene, telling viewers: "You dogged my very footstep. But struck down others I passed on my way. Why?"

Viewers then see Colin reach a deserted, snowy village looking for lodgings, before he is suddenly snatched and killed alongside his wife by a dark, mysterious force.
Covered in her parents' blood and listening to something "tear flesh apart, bones cracking, suckling," Kira is forced to run screaming to the house with the only sign of life, described in the text as a "Prussian style mansion on a hill overlooking the village, with one light burning inside."
The scene concludes with Geralt adding: "I was meant to end up alone, wasn't I? So I would finally begin to feel afraid?"
Looks like season two is going to be as grim for monster hunter Geralt as ever before...
Naturally, fans were thrilled to get a first look of the new season.

"I never thought I'd be this excited reading a script but damn you I can't wait now," wrote one Witcher enthusiast.
"PLEASE I'M SCARED AND EXCITED AND I DON'T KNOW HOW I SHOULD FEEL," a second enthused.
"Drop the trailer, sweetheart," a third added.
The script "leak" is the latest tease from Netflix over what we can expect when the show returns next year.
In a series they've wittily titled 'Witchmas', the streaming service has revealed some first look pictures at what's in store.
However, we may have a longer than anticipated wait for the show, with production on The Witcher halted, much like several other programmes, at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Filming was then dealt another blow when leading man Cavill suffered a "minor leg muscle injury", which has seen him take a step back from production while he recovers.
At least we've got this taste of season two to keep us going...
