The big N platform has just announced the start of filming for this new season.
The series started in 2019 The Witcher quickly established itself as one of Netflix’s most popular series with millions of views in just a few days. Feared by thousands of fans, be it for Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels or CD Projekt Red’s games, this adaptation ultimately proved to be a huge success for the platform.
Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri are finally reunited
The show, carried by Henry Cavill, Freya Allan or Anya Chalotra, is one of the big projects Netflix wants to make its own game of Thrones with several seasons already planned. Season 2 arrived late last year, but it’s already time to move on to the third salvo. Netflix just started production on Season 3 of the witcher and took the opportunity to celebrate the event by posting a snap that brings Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer together in a snowy setting. Accompanying this shot, the Twitter account also teases that ” The family is reunited”which mirrors the end of the second season, which showed exactly how the three protagonists came together for the first time since the show began.
The original plan called for seven seasons, and last December showrunner Lauren Hissrich said she had finished writing the third. She also announced that ” The ultimate goal and the reason I said seven years is because I wanted to stay true to the books. I don’t feel the need to see our story go beyond where they’re going “. In particular, she clarified at the trial: ” that there is a great story of the book blood of the elvesbased on season 2, which is what we’re going to do in season 3 ».
Ciri’s education should also be a common thread in Season 3
While we waited to learn more about respect for the original novels, this first shot bringing the three actors together wasn’t the only surprise from Netflix (which continues its exploration of video games). The platform also took the opportunity to unveil a first-ever synopsis of this third season, which promises to refocus on learning more about Ciri.
« As the continent’s monarchs, mages and beasts struggle to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra underground, determined to protect her newly united family from those who threaten to destroy her. Tasked with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads her to the sheltered fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to learn more about the girl’s untapped powers; Instead, they find they have landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. You must fight back, risk everything or risk losing yourself forever. » Without a concrete release date for now, this season 3 should be released in 2023.
