Netflix and The Witcher franchise had a big day as Geralt of Rivia himself appeared on the virtual stage. Henry Cavill announced that Season 3 of the fantasy series has a release date, which was good news for fans who learned that the prequel series will take its usual December slot. Fans then got to see clips from behind-the-scenes views of stunts being filmed for Season 3, including a shot of Allan as Ciri slashing her sword in what appears to be an overturned ship.
The Time of Hostility is approaching. The Witcher will return to Netflix in Summer 2023, according to the banner. #TUDUM
The Witcher is a fantasy series set in medieval times that was created by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and comprises of short stories and novels.
Monsters have destroyed the kingdoms of The Continent, and in ancient times people developed a military order of magically-transformed fighters known as Witchers to repel them and hunt down the monsters.
In the time of our story, Witchers have become the real fear for many people as monster sightings have grown scarce. The story follows Geralt of Rivia and his friends as they try to make sense of a world that is changing rapidly, for better or for worse.
The Netflix original series debuted in December 2019. Even though it was one of the first TV shows to answer the call for the “next Game of Thrones.” it instantly became a hit. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on its production schedule and expanding franchise. Despite this difficulty, that hasn’t stopped Netflix from further developing worldbuilding and timelines–and all those efforts look like they’re finally going to pay off soon.
The Witcher Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix now.
