The Butcher of Blaviken Is Back Again!!!
Yes, the filming of the third season of the highly awaited Witcher Series has finally concluded. The Witcher began filming for season 3 in March, therefore it has taken a while to get here. In July, actor Henry Cavill had to miss work due to Covid, although his injury from season 2’s filming was more severe and required more time off.
No! it’s not just a rumor as the source of the news is none other than Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who also happens to be Witcher’s Netflix Series Director.
Once shooting finished, Hissrich posted some photos of a happy crew on Instagram. Hissrich closed with a picture of a full wine glass and the word “WRAP” in the caption.
The third season of The Witcher will be based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s best-selling classic Time of Contempt.
As production started for the next season, Netflix released a description suggesting that Ciri will be pursued by a variety of groups, involving elves, magicians, and the creatures of the Continent.
Yennefer plans to pursue the Cintran princess’s magical training by taking her to Aretuza, where the two of them will inevitably get entangled in a web of political maneuvering and the tainting of both magic and chaos.
The official description released by the streaming giant reads-
“As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly-reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it.
Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line — or risk losing each other forever.”
We currently don’t have a confirmed premiere date for Witcher Season 3 but the miniseries is expected to roll out sometime next year.
