Even with the distant release of season 3 of “The Witcher,” the writers and producers of the Netflix series are already preparing everything for the fourth season. In an interview, Stephen Surjik, who directed the first two episodes of the second season of “The Witcher”, confirmed that he would do the same for the third.
Beyond that, he confirmed that the production team is already working on a fourth season, although he’s not sure if those plans include it. “The writers and producers planned Season 4,” Surjik said. “I don’t know if I’m part of this mapping program, but at least they told me they were mapping it.”
Based on the series of novels of the same name written by Andrzej Sapkowski, which entered popular culture after being adapted into a video game saga, the Netflix show “The Wicher” stars Henry Cavill and Freya Allan in the lead roles of Geralt de Riv and Ciri, respectively. The first chapters of the series were created on December 20, 2019, being a total success on the platform, applauding Cavill’s good storytelling and performance.
In September 2021, two months before the release of season 2, Netflix officially renewed “The Witcher” for season 3, confirming that filming had begun last April. While the streaming giant has yet to officially give the green light to the fourth season, the show’s team is pretty confident that it will be officially commissioned.
Beyond the main series, Netflix released a spin-off animated film, “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf,” on August 13, 2021. Meanwhile, a live prequel series, “The Witcher: Blood Origin,” will air on Netflix this year.
The official synopsis of the third season reads as follows:
As monarchs, sorcerers, and beasts from the continent compete to capture her, Geralt pushes Ciri de Cintra into hiding. Tasked with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to find out more about the girl’s untapped powers. Instead, they discover that they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, black magic, and betrayal.
Netflix has not yet confirmed the release date for the third season of “The Witcher.”
