After the acclaimed Season 2, the curiosity about The Witcher Season 3 continues to increase. Season 2 of the show, starring the successful actor Henry Cavill, was watched in one breath, and the fans are already looking forward to the Witcher Season 3. There is currently no cancellation of it. Well, if you’re wondering what we know about the Witcher Season 3, you can continue reading this article.
Will There Be a Witcher Season 3?
Since the series is planned for seven seasons, it seems that the Witcher Season 3 will come. “The script is ready, now all we have to do is bring the director and the actors back to the set and make sure that the 3rd Season is a great season,” said series executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. The probability of a 3rd Season coming after the 2nd Season was very high.
We know that filming has begun. The Witcher producer Steve Gaub and executive producer Lauren Schmidt-Hissrich shared photos in their Instagram account clearly indicating that the documented environments are being considered for the Witcher Season 3. Hissrich revealed in October 2021 that the 3rd Season will be based on a certain book. As a result, the 3rd Season is quite likely to be packed with activity. Furthermore, Hissrich stated unequivocally that the upcoming season will be “very exciting.”
The Witcher Season 3 Release Date
The Witcher’s highly anticipated 2nd Season premiered on December 17, 2021. The 2nd Season, which consisted of 8 episodes, drew a lot of interest from people all around the world. Following the release of Season 2, two years after the first, all eyes are now on the Witcher Season 3. It is not clear when it will air, but it is estimated that it will air towards the end of 2022.
What Happened in the Witcher Season 2?
Season 2 of The Witcher is right where we left off in Season 1, and it’s about the meeting of Geralt and Ciri, whose right to be surprised and their destinies meet. Thinking that Yennefer is dead, Geralt tries to take Ciri to Kaer Morhen, the Witcher castle, to provide the best possible security. Of course, during this journey, Geralt is trying to find out what his destiny partner Ciri is, whether he is a creature or not.
While Geralt and Ciri duo made their way to Kear Morhen, on the other hand, we see that Yennefer, who fell as a hostage to Nilfgaard, lost her chaos and could no longer cast magic. Tissaia, who is looking for Yennefer everywhere as if she is her daughter, is also trying to restrain the council, which is in a kind of civil war.
We see the atrocities suffered by the people after the elves took the side of Nilfgaard, but we also watch in the same sequence that no one, including Yennefer, could put a stop to this cruelty. While the community is experiencing such tension among themselves, Yennefer tries to kidnap Ciri for the deathless mother in order to get the power of chaos again and cast magic.
Right after Geralt learns that Yennefer is alive, Yennefer takes Ciri on a journey to trick Ciri so she can dig up her magic power. In this journey, we see that Yennefer actually realizes how strong and special Ciri is, and gives up on her plan, but in the process, Ciri unintentionally kills most Wither in Kear Morhen, as the Deathless Mother has now captured Ciri’s soul, and Chaos’s death begins. She displays a lot of strength as her daughter.
At this point, Yennefer sacrifices herself and absorbs the Deathless Mother, and then is sent to her own world with the help of Ciri. With Yennefer regaining her powers, Geralt and Yennefer have a dialogue to devote themselves completely to Ciri. And just like in the books, we learn that Yennefer will train Ciri in directing magic. And the 2nd Season ends like this, leaving a lot of question marks in mind.
What is a Witcher?
A Witcher is someone who has spent years training intellectually and physically, learning alchemy, monster hunting, and eventually mutating through a series of harsh procedures that have resulted in them becoming strong magic users and assassins. A witcher is politically agnostic (though Geralt has become engrossed in politics against his better judgment in the games) (and probably the books as well). They labor for money or other valued rewards, and while Geralt has been charitable at times, it is not in the witcher’s character.
The Witcher is now available on Netflix.
