The Witcher 3 Axii had also found its way into our hearts. Summer of 2023
Ciri is boating.
The Witcher season three would be published in Summer 2023, according to Netflix’s Tulum live stream. There wasn’t a full trailer or much new information on display, and yet we did get a sneak preview of Freya Allen as Ciri filming a fun-looking action scene on a boat, so there’s something to look forward to.
It’s a much shorter wait than the two-year gap between seasons one and two of The Witcher. Season two’s production took place during the early days of covid-19, so the shorter gap makes sense, and it’s remarkable they were able to get it done at all despite strict quarantine initiatives and occasional outbreaks.
Season three would seem to broadly follow the events of the Witcher saga’s book two, Time of Contempt, though there are already significant divergences from the original source of the book, Yenn and Geralt are on the outs at the beginning, while in the show, Geralt, Ciri, and Yenn finished season two ready to confront the world together.
A previously released Netflix synopsis describes the trio returning to the mage stronghold of Aretuza and having become engrossed in political conflict, all but confirming the presence of the Thanedd Coup in Season 3. If you have not read the books yet, don’t look them up, but the real ones seem to be cognizant.
