The Witcher Season 2 is closing in. After two years of waiting, Geralt of Rivia will return on December 17. And although the fans are primarily focused on the upcoming season and what it’s going to bring us, we didn’t forget that the show was already renewed for Season 3 and that it’s actively in development.
Here’s what the showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said at the recent Lucca Comics & Games panel:
“What I will say about the third season, the writers are back in Los Angeles diligently working while I am here getting to do this, so I’m grateful for them. […] It’s a really fun season, and it follows a particular book very closely, has a lot of action, some death… some death.”
Okay, it’s not saying a lot, but it’s still too early to know anything more.
Based on the series of fantasy novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher premiered in December 2019 with an 8-episode season that can be streamed on Netflix. The show stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, and Joey Batey. Newcomers in Season 2 are Kim Bodnia, Yasen Atour, Agnes Bjorn, Paul Bullion, Basil Eidenbenz, Aisha Fabienne Ross, Kristofer Hivju, and Mecia Simson.
