The Witcher franchise is coming again with a vengeance! After some start-and-stop filming as a consequence of covid-19, we not solely have The Witcher: Blood Origin later this 12 months, but additionally The Witcher season three formally slated for launch in 2023.
Over the last season, we noticed Geralt desperately attempt to preserve Princess Cirilla secure by taking her to the Witcher stronghold of Kaer Morhen. Yenefer was taken hostage by numerous individuals (first by the sorcerer Fringilla, and later by the elf/revolutionary Francesca) earlier than lastly escaping and assembly up with Jaskier. As Yen and Jaskier teamed up (for one measly episode), Geralt tried to seek out out extra in regards to the monsters spontaneously showing all through the land.
On the finish of the season, Geralt, Yenefer, Ciri, and Jaskier did all meet up once more; it turned out that Ciri’s energy is tied to the monolithic stones discovered all through the Continent, which are literally interplanar portals. The demon was crushed, a value was placed on Ciri’s head by the sorcerer guild at Aretuza, Yennefer obtained her magic again, and Geralt was nonetheless enjoying protector/step-dad to Ciri. Jaskier gave the impression to be, sadly, not that necessary. (Actually the present wasted Joey Batey’s charisma by barely placing him in season two, however that’s none of my enterprise.) Then, the emperor of Nilfgaard, Emhyr, confirmed up, revealed himself to be Ciri’s dad, and commenced to make his approach towards the dominion of Cintra, both to beat it or discover his daughter. Season three has…loads happening, and it hasn’t even began.
The Witcher season three will hit Netflix in the course of the summer season of 2023.
