Season 3 of The Witcher is launched. At the Netflix TUDUM online-only event on Saturday, The Witcher’s chief writer and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich announced that the epic fantasy series directed by Henry Cavill will return for a third season. The official announcement of the renewal of Season 3 of The Witcher comes nearly three months before the second season premieres on December 17 on Netflix. Cavill will undoubtedly come back on top, alongside Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra. Hissrich will continue as lead writer and showrunner on The Witcher season 3.
Towards the end of the three-hour global TUDUM fan event, Hissrich took the stage to announce three new Witcher projects. A second Witcher animated film is on the way, to follow last month’s The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Additionally, Netflix is also developing a Witcher series for kids and families – very interested to see how they shape (and get rid of all the blood and carnage) to fit the Witcher universe in a G Note. And as a last thing, Hissrich added that The Witcher will return for season 3.
In addition to Cavill, Allan and Chalotra, the cast of The Witcher includes Eamon Farren as Commander of the Nilfgaardian Army Ceallach, Anya Chalotra as Witch Yennefer, Joey Batey as Bard Jaskier, MyAnna Buring as Mentor. of Yennefer Tissaia de Vries, Royce Pierreson as wizard sorcerer. , Mimi Ndiweni as witch Fringilla Vigo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte as elf friend of Ciri Dara, Anna Shaffer as witch Triss Merigold and Mahesh Jadu as wizard Vilgefortz of Roggeveen.
