Now that the first season of Netflix’s The Witcher adaptation is in the bag, fans will be excitedly looking forward to the second. The good news is that we know that’s definitely happening — Netflix greenlit another season even before the mostly positive reception to the first. The bad news is that it probably isn’t going to be ready until 2021.

Here we’re going to give you a rundown of which characters from developer CD Projekt Red’s most successful video game are likely to appear in the next season based on the timeline.
Needless to say, there will be some minor spoilers. We won’t detail any story beats, but if you want to stay completely clueless as to who’s likely to show up then obviously don’t read ahead.

If you didn’t already know, this first season has been an adaptation of stories from Andrzej Sapkowski’s first Witcher books, The Last Wish, and Sword of Destiny. Next season, however, will kick off the first book in the novel saga, Blood of Elves.
Blood of Elves details Ciri’s Witcher training at Kaer Morhen, which is actually what we’re seeing during the flashback scene at the beginning of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. As you may remember, while training there, she learns from experienced monster-hunters like Geralt and Vesemir.
This is exactly the same as Blood of Elves, though she in the book she actually receives a little more attention from other Witchers, and that includes Lambert, as well as one or two other familiar names…
