The Witcher Season 3 was supposed to begin filming this month. While there is no official update on that end, the show’s executive producer, Steve Gaub, recently revealed the locations and sets for the upcoming season. Netflix dropped the much-awaited second chapter of The Witcher in December 2021.
The season immediately rose in popularity due to various favorable factors. The audiences and critics showered praise for the storytelling and performances. However, there was some disappointment from the fanbase. This is because The Witcher Season 2 slightly deviated from the source material. While the modifications seemed to work in the franchise’s favor, fans were expecting more.
The Witcher Season 2 sketched out some fantastic locations. For instance, the fortress of the witcher, Kaer Morhen. At the old keep, fans also had the delight of knowing a family of Witchers, other than Geralt. These included Geralt’s mentor and father figure Vesemir, as well as his close friend Eskel. Following the debut of the first season of The Witcher, the new set and structure were highly appreciated. In addition, the show’s overall aesthetic perfectly depicts the story’s intense atmosphere.
Recently, executive producer Steve Gaub got on Instagram and revealed the first glimpse of the new sets and locations for The Witcher Season 3. These images show a set under construction. And clearly, the team wants fans wondering what new grandiosity they are building. Not only this, the images also reveal pictures of real-life tunnels and open-air locations that the showrunners will occupy during filming. Here are the photos we’re talking about:
The main purpose behind sharing these behind-the-scenes pictures is the anticipation that comes with it. Obviously, fans will grow more eager to figure out what the third season of The Witcher has in store for them. These photos also give viewers an understanding of the scale of the efforts that go into creating such a dynamic show with a bigger budget. The kind of dedication and effort that is required in order to build a set as well as pick out precise locations is something audiences may forget to consider. But when these behind-the-scenes stories make it to the internet and are accessible to fans, they truly realize how their favorite show is fabricated.
The Witcher Season 2 ended on a riveting note. And hopefully, Season 3 will begin right there to answer all the mysteries unlocked by the latest chapter. The narratives of Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer have a lot more to explore as the story advances. The franchise is constantly preparing to offer more content to fans. The flagship series’ success has led the production to develop more sequels, as well as an upcoming prequel Witcher series.
In addition, The Witcher also has more feature films under the works. With that said, The Witcher Season 3 will be entirely different from the other spin-offs, and it won’t be ready until the end of 2023. Meanwhile, fans will have ample Witcher content to feast on. These include the remarkable Season 1 and 3, Sapkowski’s original books, and the popular series of video games by CD Projekt.
