Is The Witcher Season 3 Renewed by Netflix?
Yes! Netflix confirmed in September 2021 that season three of The Witcher had been given the green light. In a statement, the streaming giant announced: “Toss a coin for our growing The Witcher universe!
We can officially announce The Witcher Season 3, as well as the second anime feature film and one set in the world of The Witcher.” New Kids & Family series too.”
The Witcher Season 3 Release Updates:
The second season of “The Witcher” drops on Netflix on December 17th, so fans will need to be content with it for the time being, but the next installment is yet to come.
Based on the pattern that has emerged from the first two seasons, we can probably expect season three in December 2023, but it could happen by the end of 2022 if there were no major setbacks like the previous season.
What to Expect from the Plot of The Witcher Season 3?
Fans of the series will already know that The Witcher is based on the books of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski, and created for Netflix by Lauren Schmidt Heinrich.
Season one followed Geralt of Rivia, Yennefer, and Princess Siri, while Lauren has previously stated that Season 2 will carry even more material from The Last Wish and The Sword of Destiny.
And given that there are five books, it’s safe to say that we can expect to see more characters and more stories in the third season. The ending of season two draws on some details from the second book,
The Time of Contempt. It then makes sense that the third series would follow the plot of the same book, with Siri working to complete her sorceress training and later meeting Geralt.
