"Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed in a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line — or risk losing each other forever."

Speaking about the show’s future, the series’ showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich revealed that there was a seven-season plan for the Netflix fantasy series, which Henry said that he would "absolutely" want to play the role for the entire seven-season arc. The Hollywood Reporter previously reported that he said: "As long as we can keep telling great stories which honor [author Andrzej] Sapkowski's work."

Henry is clearly a huge fan of the show, and recently posted a series of photos of his horse - whose real name is Hector - and his trainer Laszlo Juhász which he captioned: "Reunited with my equine friend Hector today, and my human friend Laszlo! After a good ride out through the mountains, Hector showed off some of his new rearing skills. He's showing some promise."
