It's been almost two months since Geralt from Rivia, Ciri and Yennefer from Vengerberg returned to kill monsters, overthrow political orders, and otherwise venture across the continent in season 2 of The Witcher. Netflix's fantastic monster hunting show was a huge success for the platform, with about 2.2 billion minutes of live streaming in its launch week. These are huge numbers and have undoubtedly assured Netflix that its decision to do everything possible to expand the franchise into a movie universe is a good one. The studio has already released the animated prequel film The Wolf's Nightmare, and sometime this year they will also release the live-action prequel series Blood Origin. Add to that the Witcher children's show that's in the works and who knows how many seasons of the mother ship series, and we can look forward to many years of witchcraft to come.
But for fans of the story of Geralt, Yen and Ciri in particular, the obvious question is when will we be able to see exactly season 3?
Season 3 release date for The Witcher
For now, there is no confirmed release date for season 3 of The Witcher on Netflix. Given that the series has not yet begun filming, it is very likely that we will wait a while to see Henry Cavill wearing the white wig again. All we know now is that the screenplays are written and the show is in pre-production. As soon as the filming starts, we'll call her from the top of the Aretuza tower.
On the plus side, the Blood Origin prequel series I mentioned will probably be out in a day, not too far from now. Netflix has released a limited series trailer starring Michelle Yeoh as the main post-credits for the season 2 finale of The Witcher. It has been confirmed that Blood Origin will come in 2022. Although we do not have a month yet, the fact that Netflix has already released a trailer is auspicious. It means that even if the show has something to do, they are comfortable enough with the place where they are to show us at least part of it.
For now, seasons 1 and 2 of The Witcher are still available on Netflix for streaming. And for a complete experience, make sure you place the Wolf's Nightmare between seasons.
