The Witcher Season 2 Premieres With The Grain of Truth Short Story

The Witcher‘s second season is approaching, and now we know which story, exactly, it will begin with.

According to producer Lauren S. Hissrich, the new season’s first episode will adapt A Grain of Truth, a short story written by Andrzej Sapkowski, and the third from The Last Wish, which she described as one of her favorites from the author’s work.

In a Netflix promotional video, Hissrich talked about what to expect from the story, which will feature Nivellen, a character played by actor Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones‘ Thormund Giantsbane), and his relationship with Geralt of Rivia.

“I am so excited that in season 2 we get to bring one of my favorite short stories to life. It’s been the worst-kept secret that we’ve had, but we are adapting A Grain of Truth for the opening of our season 2 of The Witcher,” she said.

According to Hissrich, A Grain of Truth will bring Ciri into the story in a “father and daughter” narrative, something that should recur in the relationship between Geralt and the Princess Cirilla of Cintra in the second year of the series.
