The Witcher season 2 is bringing in Geralt’s mentor and father figure, Vesemir. The character was in he video games, and here’s how the two compare.
Here’s how The Witcher season 2’s iteration of Vesemir compares to the video games. The Netflix series is headed towards season 2, out December 17, following the explosive season 1 finale. In preparation, the streaming service has been rolling out the promotional material in a bid to hype up fans for the upcoming storyline that sees Ciri training with Geralt of Rivia at Kaer Morhen, the ancient refuge for witchers. Joining the main characters in season 2 of The Witcher is Vesemir (played by Killing Eve’s Kim Bodnia), the most experienced witcher on the Continent.
Vesemir has been a staple in Geralt’s life for a long time. A father figure and mentor, the oldest living witcher was one of the only survivors following an assault on Kaer Morhen that killed most of the witchers in the keep. As such, he’s seen a lot of pain in the world around him, and the abundance of knowledge he has is bestowed upon the young witchers he trains. In The Witcher’s season 2 trailer, Vesemir is spotted for the first time, interacting primarily with Geralt. He agrees to train Ciri, which is exactly what he does in the The Witcher games, though he admits to Geralt that he doesn’t know exactly what he’s protecting her from.
