The Witcher is Netflix’s answer to groundbreaking fantasy shows like Game of Thrones. The show is based on the popular Polish novel series by Andrzej Sapkowski. The series’ second season expanded upon the stunning world of the first season. Now fans are eagerly awaiting The Witcher Season 3.
Geralt of Rivia, a magically empowered monster hunter who roams the entire continent, is the protagonist of The Witcher. Fate, on the other hand, has other plans for him and his path crosses Princess Ciri and Yennefer of Vengerberg.
What to expect from The Witcher season 3?
When the show returns with season 3 of The Witcher, it will be based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s novel Time of Contempt. In the book, the political intrigue on Thanedd Island explodes in a full-blown coup, with Geralt at the center. Meanwhile, Yennefer’s attempts to teach Ciri magic fail miserably, resulting in Ciri’s separation from her guardians.
At the same time, Cahil’s storyline will take an unexpected turn as he becomes allies with Geralt instead of enemies with him. The Netflix TV show has shown that it is willing to deviate from the novels every now and then. Season 2 was significantly influenced by Blood of Elves, although it didn’t quite follow it, revealing the truth about Ciri’s parentage much faster than Sapkowski’s novels.
Will the wild hunt chase Ciri?
In both book series, The Wild Hunt is a pack of elves from a different realm who covet Ciri’s power to rule the Gate of the World in Sapkowski’s books. The Wild Hunt will most certainly be reinvented in The Witcher. Season 2 sowed the seeds for the Ghost Riders entrance, but will they take the stage in Season 3, or will they be reserved for the inevitable Season 4? Time will tell. But one thing’s for sure, Ciri will be haunted by the Wild Hunt at some point.
What now for Cahir and Fringilla?
Fringilla is one of The Witcher’s greatest wizards, while Cahir is one of the strongest warriors. They may seem invincible when together, but they spend most of the season apart. When they eventually come together, their ambitions get in the way, making it impossible to function as a team.
After falling out of favor with the White Flame, they are caught by him at the end of Season 2. Emhyr didn’t just kill them, which is odd. But they are such interesting characters that the program probably didn’t want to lose them. Now the question is whether they will remain faithful to Nilfgaard. Will they devise a plan to flee and join the Elven Rebellion? Will they follow their own path in season 3 of The Witcher?
When is The Witcher season 3 coming?
The second season of The Witcher premiered on Netflix on December 17, 2022. On the other hand, as most of you know, Netflix has already green-lighted the series for a third season, given the franchise’s huge popularity. Meanwhile, production for the third season started in early April 2022. Last month, Netflix released some photos from the set of season 3 of The Witcher.
The third season is now in production and many images of The Witcher Season 3 set have been leaked online. While we don’t have a release date yet, the time it takes for a production of this magnitude isn’t surprising. As a result, The Witcher Season 3 may not be released until 2023.
