What to see At first glance, several mounted soldiers can be seen, as well as parts of the recording crew. The filming location is said to be Saunton Sands beach in Devon in the south west of Great Britain. Particularly noticeable are the armors, which differ significantly from the previous knights in the series.
Is the wild hunt coming? In fact, the design of the armor is reminiscent of the Wild Hunt, which made its big appearance in the video game series in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In the books they appeared in “Time of Contempt” and have since been regarded as the hunter of Geralt’s foster daughter Ciri. Their leader is Eredin Bréacc Glas, who has a keen interest in Ciri’s powers.
No official confirmation: Netflix has not yet commented on the new rumors and set pictures. According to the sources of RedanianIntelligence, however, it should actually be the wild hunt. However, there is no more information.
It remains open whether the wild hunt plays a bigger role in the second season of The Witcher or only appears briefly on the sidelines. It is conceivable that the series writers will introduce the antagonists already, but only make them the focus in a later season.
