The Witcher Season 2: “Monster Mash” Finale Detailed in Behind-the-Scenes Video

Netflix’s The Witcher recently released its second season in December, and now that there’s been a bit of time between that and now, the streaming platform has shared a new video that offers some behind-the-scenes information on the season’s epic battle in its finale. It features some tidbits from the likes of stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, and Joey Batey as well as showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich all about it.

Warning: beyond this point, there be spoilers for The Witcher Season 2.

At the end of the season, the major arcs of the story all largely collide at Kaer Morhen, home of the witchers, when a possessed Ciri takes on Geralt, Vesemir, and the rest with help from some deadly basilisk. It’s one of the most complicated scenes in the season with numerous performers and CGI critters, and apparently was referred as as “the monster mash” by everyone because of its many moving parts. You can check out the new video for yourself below:
