The second season of the Netflix hit series The Witcher is set to release on December 17, which is just a couple of weeks away. While we count down the days, Netflix has been kind enough to share some new footage including our first look at a monster called the Myriapod.
Besides the official marketing news, however, we’re also starting to hear more and more about the upcoming season through other avenues.
The latest report by NSFW website Recapped revealed an interesting new character that will be cast for Season 3 but Recapped also provided more information on the second season’s approach towards nudity.
According to Recapped, there was only one scene in Episode 1 where a significant character was nude and another scene with naked extras in Episode 2. The takeaway is that Netflix has significantly scaled back scenes requiring nudity, which were quite frequent in the first season.
For many, this should be really good news. One major criticism the show faced after the first season was the use of nudity in many scenes that did not appear to require it. If Recapped is correct, then that will probably not be the case moving forward.
It’s important to note that the Netflix series has hired an Intimacy Coordinator for season two, so it’s possible this change was made based on either her input or that of the cast. Another option is that this was the result of the strict pandemic filming guidelines.
With just under twenty days until the launch of the second season, we expect Netflix to release more and more marketing material in the next three weeks. For all the latest news from the Continent, make sure to follow our Twitter page @RedanianIntel.
