With only around a week to go until the Netflix premiere of The Witcher, the streaming platform released today the final trailer for the series, this time honing in on the key political struggle surrounding Princess Cirilla, aka the Lion Cub of Cintra.
Tasked with fleeing from the city, Ciri must find Geralt of Rivia while escaping from the pursuit of the Nilfgaardian Empire – the world depends on it. This is probably the last major preview we are getting ahead of the premiere, so give the trailer a watch above and prepare yourself to enter the Continent.[relatedArticle-0]
In The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
