Jaskier Gets His Own Hilariously Epic Witcher Season 2 Poster

Jaskier has gotten his own hilariously epic poster for The Witcher season 2, which shows the bard spoofing main characters Ciri (Freya Allan), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill). Joey Batey will return to play Jaskier in The Witcher season 2, continuing the love/hate friendship with Geralt that became a highlight of season 1. The Witcher season 2 is currently scheduled to release on Netflix streaming on December 17, 2021.

While never exactly pivotal to the core storylines of The Witcher, Jaskier nevertheless became a fan favorite in no time at all. His constant buffoonery, lighthearted moments of comic relief, and endearing relationship with Geralt made for some of the show’s brightest and most entertaining moments. After the climactic events of the Witcher season 1 ending, it should be exciting to see what kinds of antics Jaskier gets into in The Witcher season 2.

A new poster for The Witcher season 2, shared to the official Witcher Twitter account, shows Jaskier spoofing the show's three main protagonists in hilarious fashion. An earlier poster released for season 2 showed Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer decked out in their combat clothes and staring dramatically into the distance. The new poster puts Batey’s Jaskier in place of all three, giving the bard some silly new looks and epic expressions entirely unbefitting for his comedic character. It’s a fun way to tease the upcoming season, and a confirmation that Jaskier will be just as silly as he was in season 1. Check out the new Witcher season 2 poster below.

The character of Jaskier fit well into The Witcher season 1’s more episodic structure. Each episode saw Geralt get into some new, bizarre supernatural mishap, often with Jaskier inexplicably tagging along, demanding protection, or offering faint moral support. However, now that Geralt and Ciri have reunited, The Witcher season 2 may take on a more focused timeline. It should be fun to see Jaskier take on a more consistent role in the story, and to see him interact more with Ciri and Yennefer in addition to Geralt.

Of course, the main story of The Witcher will still revolve around those three core protagonists. Ciri will be running from her many enemies and discovering the nature of her powers, Geralt will be with some big decisions as his life changes from one of solitude to one of mentorship, and Yennefer must contend with the deaths of many of her comrades at the end of The Witcher season 1. Hopefully, Jaskier still gets in on the action from time to time when The Witcher season 2 premieres on Netflix on December 17.
