Before the second season of Netflix’s famous fantasy series The Witcher even premiered, the streaming service announced that a third season is in the works.And now, with Netflix revealing on social media that The Witcher is filming the next batch of episodes, a new era has begun.
“[The Witcher] Season 3 is now in development – we’ve been looking forward to this family reunion!” Netflix verified the news in a tweet that included an image from the set of the programme (above) showing Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, and Anya Chalotra sitting about and conversing.
She told TechRadar, “We’re almost done with the scripting phase, and it’s wonderful.” “Because it’s based on my favourite book in the saga, The Time of Contempt, I’m particularly excited about how the season is shaping up.
“I feel like seasons 1 and 2 have been setting the groundwork for everything monumental that’s about to occur,” she continued. “However, the creative process has just just begun. We’ve got the scripts, so we’ll bring in directors and performers, and we’ll really start digging in and reflecting back to make sure it’s the perfect season.”
If you’ve already binge-watched the new season, you’re undoubtedly wondering when Cavill’s huge grey wig would make an appearance in the show’s third season.
Will There Be a Third Season of the Witcher?
Thankfully, a third season of The Witcher was announced in September 2021, well before the second season was even launched.Freya Allan, who plays Ciri in the show, claimed in December 2021 that she’d already seen the scripts for the third season and that she thinks it’ll be “a terrific season.” “..”I could have actually seen some scripts, you know?” she told RadioTimes.com. I’m merely putting it out there. I’m not sure when it will be [exactly], but it won’t be long.””It’s quite thrilling,” she added. “I believe this is going to be a fantastic season.”
Release Date Rumours for the Witcher Season 3
Season 3 of The Witcher has yet to be given an official release date.
The Witcher season two was delayed several times due to the coronavirus epidemic and Cavill’s on-set injuries, and it finally premiered almost two years after the first.
As previously said, season 3 filming has begun, and barring any major setbacks, we expect the show to premiere by the end of 2022, if not sooner, and most likely in 2023.
Rumors About the Characters of the Witcher 3
Season 3 of The Witcher will feature the following cast members.
Geralt of Rivia, played by Henry Cavill, is a monster-fighting wizard.
Cirilla AKA Ciri is played by Freya Allan.
Yennefer of Vengerberg is played by Anya Chalotra.
Allan told RadioTimes.com that it’s “quite impossible to say” how Ciri may change in future episodes.
“You sort of figure it out as you go along,” she explained. “It’s one of those things where you can’t always express what you want.” You’re finding it as you go along, and you’re free to do whatever you want with the script.
“However, I would say that I definitely, obviously want to watch her turn into an incredible fighter,” she continued. “That’s for sure,” says the narrator. I’m looking forward to her receiving her appropriate sword. The day I’m handed a proper silver, weighty sword, that’ll be the day I’m satisfied.”
Aside from Cavill, Allan, and Chalotra, we’d expect Joey Batey, who played Jaskier in season two, to return, especially because they’ve previously stated where they’d like to see their character go in future seasons.
“I’m extremely happy to be a part of those kinds of narratives that might assist young people figure out who they are or how they belong in a changing world.”
However, Allan has stated that she would like to try her hand at other parts in the future, and that she has a timetable in mind for leaving The Witcher, so fans will have to wait and see what season three has in store.
Season 2 of the Witcher (Netflix) Stars Kim Bodnia.
In addition, Royce Pierreson as Istredd, Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold, and Kim Bodnia as Vesemir are likely to return.
In an exclusive interview with RadioTimes.com, Paul Bullion, who plays Lambert, discussed whether he may return for a third season: “It’s no secret that I adore both the series and the project. We’re really looking forward to it. So, in the future, I’m pleased to… If I’m lucky enough to be a part of their big goals, then, hey, let’s see how Series 2 goes.”
“It’s a business, after all, and it’s all about what works and what doesn’t. It’s not simply about being in a show for the sake of being in a show. There must be a tale, and it must link with the rest of the world, as well as how the story will progress.”
“I don’t know anything about this, but I know there’s going to be a third season, or at least that’s the plan.” Lauren has been talking about it on Twitter in the writer’s room. So I’d be thrilled to return and work with Codringher and Fenn a little bit more.”
What Will Happen in Season 3 of the Witcher?
After the season two cliffhangers revealed that The Wild Hunt seeks Ciri for her ‘Hen Ikeir’ (Elder Blood), given that she may have the capacity to restore the elves to their former grandeur, it appears like The Witcher season 3 will dive deeper into Ciri’s destiny.
“The demon; the Wild Hunt – she’s marked for something, and it doesn’t end there,” Geralt remarked of Ciri’s fate in season two. If wizards and royals learn she’s still alive and what she’s capable of, they’ll pursue her relentlessly.”
In subsequent episodes, there will be a tense hunt for Ciri, with Yennefer and Geralt scrambling to protect her as the core trio becomes entwined in one epic plot.
The third season, according to Hissrich, is based on The Time of Contempt, in which Yennefer, Ciri, and Geralt travel to Aretuza to learn how to master Ciri’s magic.
