Last Updated on December 19, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

The Witcher Season 3 will be making its way to Netflix very soon. This franchise has been up to a lot of work during these past few days. The world of The Witcher seems to grow significantly with every passing day. The best part about the franchise is that Netflix had officially announced The Witcher Season 3 even before The Witcher Season 2 was released.

TUDUM was held in the month of September by Netflix. This announcement was made during the event. Currently, we are in December, so several updates have come in after it. If you want all these details, you have reached the perfect article.

The Witcher Season 3 Release Date: When Will It Arrive? 

The show’s second season has come up on Netflix after two years since its first season. This extended delay was mainly because of the coronavirus pandemic. Apart from this, even Henry Cavill faced a huge injury on the sets of the show as well.

Currently, we can see that the production of the show is working at a steady rate, just like the way it was before the pandemic.

If we consider a few more potential delays on the way, then we can expect The Witcher Season 3 release date to be somewhere during the end of 2022. It might also be in the earlier months of 2023.

Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner of The Witcher franchise, has mentioned that the writers are already working on scripts for The Witcher Season 3.

She has put in her best words for all the writers who have come in for the new season and the previous writers. 

There are lots of new ideas for the new season, and many of these ideas will be implemented to make the show memorable for everyone.

Once they are ready with the scripts, they will start talking to all the characters involved in The Witcher Season 3. The directors will come into the scene then, and the production will begin in a full-fledged way.

Who are the actors we will get to see in The Witcher Season 3?

Henry Cavill is sure to return in his role of Geralt of Rivia. Along with that, if everything goes according to plan, then several characters will be returning in their roles for the upcoming season. 

In the show, Freya Allan will be returning in The Witcher Season 3 as Cirilla, or Ciri as we call her. Anya Chalotra will play the role of Yennefer of Vengerberg. Royce Pierreson will be playing the role of Istredd.

Joey Batey will return as Jaskier. Anna Shaffer will portray Triss Merigold’s character. Finally, Kim Bodnia will play Vesemir.

If you have finished watching The Witcher Season 2, then you already know that Emhyr, Ciri’s father, has come back from the dead. Bart Edwards will also be playing a considerable role in The Witcher Season 3 as the villain.

After the second season, we have all noticed that the cast has been expanded in a big way. This same practice can be seen in the upcoming season as well.

The show also has Philippa Eilhatd, one of the most prominent LGBTQ+ characters. She had a cameo in the season, and we are sure to see her in the upcoming season.

What could be the plot for The Witcher Season 3?

After all the chaos in the final episodes of The Witcher Season 2, the upcoming episodes in The Wither Season 3 will primarily focus on the destiny that Ciri holds. She might end up becoming the destroyer of the world or its saviour.

We will see several forces who would try their best to manipulate her power for their help. Amongst these forces also include Ciri’s father, who has emerged from the dead. However, with Geralt and Yennefer by her side, Ciri can be assured of her safety.

When Joey Batey was asked about the future of the character, Jaskier, in the last promo tour of the show in November, he said that he trusts the showrunner to bring is something extraordinary.

He mentioned that Lauren is updating a few of the scripts penned down way back in the 1980s.

People nowadays are not just interested in dragons. They are interested in the process as to how xenophobia works and how does disruption and war feel like.

Lauren S. Hissrich seems to be perfect in expressing these controversial topics through her way of filmmaking. This is what excites Joey Batey a lot, and he is looking forward to his role in The Witcher Season 3.

Freya Allen was also asked the same question during the November tour. She wants to see her character become a fantastic fighter. Ciri is waiting to hold to a silver sword and not a broomstick. Both Freya Allen and her on-screen character are waiting for the same thing.

She has revealed that she has been able to get a peek at the scripts for The Witcher Season 3. She surely hopes for a remarkable third season with the show.

At the Lucca Comics & Games Festival in Italy, Lauren S Hissrich has mentioned that this new season will be packed with action, which will eventually lead to a few deaths. This might also mean the end of some major characters in the show.

The audience will get to see in The Witcher Season 2 that a major concentration will be given to the story of the elves. In The Witcher Season 3, we will get to see Scoia’tael, the army of elves who will be fighting for Nilfgaard.
