Clear your schedule and stock your mead supply because The Witcher was renewed for season 3 before season 2 even hit Netflix. So even though we are already far done with the show’s second season, a least we can expect more from Gerald and the crew in the near future. While we’re still crossing our fingers for news about even more seasons, we still have a lot to look forward to with the show’s upcoming third season. So what is going to happen?
Here’s everything you need to know about The Witcher season 3.
Will this be the last season?
As for more Witcher, can you blame the folks at Netflix? Insert joke about the “law of surprise” here, because I’m not surprised. The show was so popular when season 1 hit and is sure to make a splash with season 2. Henry Cavill is so dreamy in the role. There are so many books (six, in fact) as well as a trilogy of video games and graphic novels to adapt new seasons from.
Do we know what season 3 will be about?
While we don’t know exactly what the new season will be about, the books should give us a bit of a clue as to what to expect.
But wait—there’s more! An animated film in the Witcher universe called Nightmare of the Wolf dropped on the streaming service in 2021. It stars Theo James (Divergent, Sanditon), Laura Pulver (Sherlock), and Graham McTavish (Outlander), NBD. According to Variety, this film leads up to the events in the Conjunction of the Spheres—and if that confuses you, you are not alone. I’m pretty good at following fantasy jargon, but The Witcher really lost me there a couple of times. I didn’t even realize there were multiple timelines when I was watching for the first time. It’s a good thing everyone is so easy on the eyes. The Conjunction of the Spheres is an event in the fantasy universe that happened way in the past and resulted in magic spreading through the land.
There’s also going to be a prequel/spin-off series called The Witcher: Blood Origin. Netflix is really committed to expanding the world. It’s looking at making some more family-friendly shows in the Witcher-verse too. I would expect all things Witcher to be around for a long, long time.
When will season 3 be released?
While we probably won’t see season 3 until late 2022, production on season three has already begun and Netflix shared a very special pic of the cast back at work together.
