The Witcher Season 3 is slated for summer 2023. During the Tudum 2022 online event, Netflix showed teaser art for the Henry Cavill-led dark fantasy series, featuring Geralt’s shattered locket – fragments of which take the form of a swallow and a star. Season 3 follows Geralt’s journey to the fortress of Aretuza, as he once again guides Ciri of Cintra (Freya Allan), who was revealed to have the Elder Blood running through her veins. Anya Chalotra returns to play Yennefer the sorceress, who has a complicated relationship with him.
Plot details for The Witcher season 3 are sketchy, but clues from the teaser image indicate that this chapter will see the trio work together to protect Ciri from danger. For the uninitiated, the swallow symbol translates to Zireael, an ancient gwyhyr sword forged by gnomes in Tir Tochair and given to Ciri as a gift. Meanwhile, the inverted star-like symbol is the Obsidian, which is worn by Yennefer in both the Netflix series and the CD Projekt Red video games.

In Season 2, Geralt (Cavill) discovered that Ciri possessed a number of alien powers, far beyond the knowledge of a monster hunter. Therefore, he seeks the help of ex-lover Yennefer, to understand its complexity and how she can master it to avert any danger. But upon reaching Aretuza’s grounds, the group realizes they have landed on a battlefield brimming with political corruption, dark magic and betrayal.
The Witcher Season 2 Review: Better, But Henry Cavill’s Netflix Series Still Has Some Ways To Go
Shooting for Season 3 of The Witcher began in April, when Netflix revealed its four-director lineup. This includes Stephen Surjik (The Umbrella Academy), Gandja Monteiro (Brand New Cherry Flavor), Loni Peristere (American Horror Story), and Bola Ogun (Match).
Everyone except Surjik – who directed the first two episodes of The Witcher Season 2 – is new to The Witcher world. Based on past trends and the fact that there are four directors, we can assume that each director will direct two episodes each in the upcoming season. The Witcher Season 3 also joins new members Meng’er Zhang (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) and Robbie Amell (The Babysitter).
The Witcher 3 is slated for a summer 2023 release, exclusively on Netflix. Mind you, that’s the American summer, not the Indian one.
