The Witcher’s Henry Cavill showed off a new training photo on social media ahead of Season 2. Things were always going to heat up quickly with how well-received the Netflix mega-hit ended up being. There was some healthy skepticism from different circles coming in, but no one could question that Cavill certainly had the physique for the role. Geralt is a physical presence and people have been delighted by his turn as the protagonist for a bunch of reasons. As more details about Season 2 continue to trickle out, so will more images of Cavill getting himself together for another round.

Witcher training focuses on three major aspects....speed, explosive power, and fitness. Which can hurt! I haven't had the opportunity to run for miles up hill since Gibralter many years ago! But there is no better place to get back into that groove than the Lake District here at home in the UK. This place has just stormed into my top 3 favourite places in the world! Absolutely love it. #LakeDistrict #Witcher2
“Henry Cavill gave us our first look at Geralt's season 2 armor earlier today, but that wasn't the only revelation Netflix had in store for us. They also revealed the synopsis for season 2, which will pick up after the season 1 finale and the Battle of Sodden,” he said. “Geralt believes Yennefer died at the epic battle and then takes Ciri to Kaer Morhen, where he was raised as a boy by Vesemir and the other Witchers of the Wolf School. Now, we all know that Yennefer isn't dead, and we can't wait to see Geralt's reaction when he realizes this.”
