Netflix’s hotly anticipated series The Witcher is ready to drop its third season and, believe us, it’s bigger and bolder than ever. This isn’t merely a season of fantastical exploits and beastly encounters, but also a season of farewells and new beginnings.
Henry Cavill, whose portrayal of Geralt of Rivia has won over legions of fans, is set to conclude his journey in this beloved role. The white-haired Witcher, Cavill has embodied for three seasons, will be passing the silver sword to Liam Hemsworth starting in Season 4 – which has caused quite a stir among The Witcher fan base.
What to expect in season 3
Yet, the farewell to Cavill isn’t the only talking point this season. The Witcher’s latest offering is set to introduce us to the series’ most terrifying creature yet – a monstrous entity born from the charred remains of women and girls. It’s enough to send a shiver down the spine of even the most hardened Witcher fans.
But wait, there’s more.
For the first time in the series, we’ll witness the coming together of the core trio – Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer. This unification is set to offer a fresh dynamic and further explore the nuanced relationships between these characters.
“For years, Geralt has claimed neutrality, shunned politics and publicly asserted that witchers don’t have emotions – all to make his life as a killer easier to navigate,” show creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich shared in a Netflix promotional interview. The third season, based on the second installment of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher book series, “Time of Contempt”, aims to challenge these assertions.
Hissrich continues, “We’ve seen him battle monsters and monstrous humans; we’ve watched as he’s hardened himself in order to survive. This season, he can no longer do that.”

Buckle up, Witcher fans – chaos is coming, and it’s set to redefine everything you thought you knew about the world of Geralt of Rivia.
The Witcher Season 3 premieres on June 29th on Netflix.
