Toss a coin to your Witcher because there's a new trailer for Henry Cavill's monster-hunting adventures. The Witcher season 2 premieres on Netflix on Dec. 17. And according to the trailer, released Friday: "Something has changed..."

There's a war on, monsters roam, and Geralt of Rivera is embroiled in more stylishly bloody swordplay. He may think the end of days is "horseshit," but it looks like more magical monster-y mayhem is about to cut loose.

Previously Netflix released a video exploring season 2's COVID-delayed production. Clips of the new season were also teased at Netflix's recent Tudum event for upcoming shows, including Witcher prequel, Blood Origin.

The Witcher is based on a series of novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that began in 1992. They've since been adapted into a beloved video game series, multiple comic books and one very bad 2001 movie
