Epic fantasy drama series The Witcher is returning to our screens v. soon, but in the meantime, we’ve been treated to a sick lil Christmas gift from Netflix.
In the lead-up to the release of season 2, Netflix just dropped a festive trailer, reimagining the series as one of their corny Christmas flicks (think… The Princess Switch, but with evil creatures).
The vid recycles footage from season 1 and includes The Ronettes’ ‘Sleigh Ride’. The teaser sees town folk trying their darnedest to cheer up the eternally grumpy Grinch, Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill).
“You can’t outrun this just because you’re terrified of it,” druid Mousesack (Adam Levy) tell Geralt. “It’s coming, Geralt.”
“Stop your boorish grunts of protest,” Jaskier (Joey Batey) says, as presents and decorations are edited into existing scenes. “You must want something for yourself.”
“Yeah, slaying,” Geralt replied, before a montage of some savage moments from the show’s first season plays.
“Save your sleds for another day, for now is a time to simply slay. Tis the season of #Witchmas,” the official Witcher account tweeted alongside the video clip.

Netflix recently unrelieved a first look at The Witcher season 2, featuring “new armour, same witcher.”
The pics show a front and back view of our main man Henry Cavill (which is just what the doctor ordered), looking as daddy as ever.

The Witcher was forced to halt production back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve since resumed filming in August, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The logline for the The Witcher season 2 is as follows: “Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen.
“While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”
The Witcher season 2 is set to premiere on Netflix in 2021.
