A date for The Witcher season two has only just been announced, but that hasn’t stopped fans wondering if there will be a season three.
The series, which follows Geralt of Rivia as portrayed by Henry Cavill, was Netlifx’s most popular series of 2019. Netflix has confirmed that the much-delayed second season will premiere in December 2021, but has yet to say whether any third was lit green.
So what do we know so far about a possible season three? Read on.
Has The Witcher season 3 been confirmed?
Not officially, but there is evidence that this is already happening. In October, a The Witcher fan site reported that a third season of The Witcher had appeared on the Writers Guild of America website. This is the biggest clue yet that Netflix has already turned on the third season before the second is released.
Clues for a third season have also been dropped left-to-right and center by those close to the show’s production. In December 2020, the Twitter account of NetflixGeekd tweeted a photo of what appears to be the last (spoiler warning) page of the script for season two and says:
“This page from the Witcher season 2 script shows that the next season will not hold back.” The script suggests a big cliffhanger, the kind you only anticipate if you already knew another season was confirmed.
We hope the producers will get straight to making the next season as quickly as they did with the second season. After the huge success of the first season, which released in December 2019, season two was announced and they started filming it two months later. Following this logic, we hope to hear about a third season of The Witcher in early 2022.
The Witcher Season 3 Cast and Story
It’s far too early to know who the new characters are and who might be joining the cast for season three. Needless to say, Cavill, Chalotra, and Allen – who play the main characters of The Witcher – are sure to return for a third season.
The streaming service has no shortage of material from Sapowski’s book series, which follows the stories and relationships of a wide range of characters.
For season two, Bridgerton star, Adjoa Andoh, who played Lady Danbury, joins the cast to play Nenneke – a priestess who appears in Sapkowski’s books.
Liz Carr of Silent Witness, stage actress Cassie Clare, Graham McTavish of The Hobbit, Kevin Doyle of Downton Abbey and Simon Callow – known for Four Weddings and a Funeral – are also entered for the second series.
Chris Fulton, who played Sir Phillip Crane in Bridgerton, will play Rience – one of the main villains in the books.
