The Witcher ending explained – Netflix fans are divided on the series conclusion

THE Witcher dropped on Netflix less than a week ago and already, die-hard fans have binged watched the entire series.

But after watching the show to the very end, there seems to be a mixed reaction from viewers over the programme that has been dubbed 'the next Game of Thrones'.

How does Netflix's The Witcher end?

Geralt Yurga meets a merchant from a refugee camp and they are both savagely attacked by humanoids – whose bites can be fatal.

Geralt is able to fight them off, but not before one causes him to collapse after taking a slice out of his leg.

Yennefer meanwhile teams up with Tissaia and Vilgefortz, who have made it their mission to stop Nilfgaard’s invasion of the North at a keep in Sodden, to go to battle.

In the series finale, the battle is underway and Yennefer uses both normal and magical defence tactics – however, fails to stop the onslaught.

Yennefer reunites with an injured Tissaia and tells her to “let your chaos explode.” She does, coming up with a tidal wave of flames that destroys Nilfgaard’s army.

After having a strange dream about Geralt and Tissaia, Princess Ciri runs into the forest and Geralt finds her.

They embrace and prove that “people linked by destiny will always find each other.”

Ciri looks up at Geralt and after hinting that fate has perhaps united them to more than just each other, Ciri then strangely asks, “Who’s Yennefer?”

How have The Witcher fans reacted?

Fans have taken to social media to have their say on the ending of The Witcher.


Another fan tweeted from the same point of view: That's was a nice but horrible ending to season 1 of the witcher.

Meanwhile, many fans were also rather pleased with the show's conclusion.

"Ok @netflix #TheWitcher was a hit Great show That ending Can’t wait for season 2", one fan said.

Another agreed and said: "WOW! What an ending! #TheWitcher season 1 gets a 10/10 by me. I could watch this series forever and never grow tired of it."

Is The Witcher returning for series 2?

Television producer and screenwriter Lauren Hissrich confirmed in November 2019 that The Witcher will be returning for a second series, five weeks before Netflix dropped the first.

Sadly, fans will have to wait patiently as the release date for series two is still unknown and it is tough to even predict when fans will finally get their hands on the new content.

However, Variety has reported that filming will begin in early 2020 with the likely release of the new series to come in 2021.

Lauren praised the show saying: "I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri.”
