Netflix confirms 'The Witcher' Season 3 ahead of season 2's release.
'The Witcher' Season 2 is yet to release, but no one can stop us from talking about season 3 as early as now.
Based on Andrzej Sapkowski's book series of the same name and created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, 'The Witcher' is among the biggest and most successful shows on Netflix!
The first season of the live-action adaptation premiered on Netflix in 2019, and we have waited for two years to see its second season.
Don't worry because we will see plenty more of Henry Cavill in the future. Here's everything we know about 'The Witcher' Season 3.
Yes, 'The Witcher' Season 3 is officially happening!
Netflix confirmed the show's return during the platform's massive Tudum event in September 2021, ahead of season 2's release.
Aside from the new season, the streaming giant also announced a second anime feature film and a new Kids and Family Witcher series.
Here's the official announcement from Netflix:

There is no release date yet. But judging the length of production that the previous season took, season 3 won't likely arrive until late 2023 or 2024.
'The Witcher' season 1 was released on Netflix on December 20, 2019. The second season is arriving on December 17, 2021.
Production for the second season was greatly affected by the pandemic, which is why we had to wait for two years for the show's return.
Without a pandemic, there's a chance that the third season might arrive next year.
The first season of 'The Witcher' introduces us to Geralt of Rivia, Yennefer, and Princess Ciri. The second season will see Geralt's return to Kaer Morhen to protect his adopted daughter, Ciri.
There are eight books in 'The Witcher' series, so we have plenty of source materials ready for adaptation.
We still do not know which book Netflix will use to draw inspiration for the third season. Let us wait for the second season to release, and we shall start analyzing its events and compare them with the books.
We will update this space immediately once season 2 is released.
Although there are still no official casting details, we are expecting the series regulars to return. That includes:
Henry Cavill will certainly reprise his role as Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher himself.
Freya Allan as Ciri and Anna Shaffer as Triss
We are also confident that Anya Chalotra will reprise her role as Yennefer, along with Eamon Farren as Cahir and Joey Batey as Jaskier.
MyAnna Buring will also likely return as Tissaia, Royce Pierreson as Istredd, Mini Ndiweni as Fringilla, and Wilson Radjou-Pujalte as Dara.
The second season of 'The Witcher' is still about to release. Do not expect to see the season 3 trailer at least until next year.
In the meantime, we will leave you with one of season 2's official trailers to keep the hype going.
