The Witcher season 3 is scheduled to release in summer 2023. At its Tudum 2022 online-only event, Netflix released teaser art for the Henry Cavill-directed dark fantasy series, featuring Geralt’s shattered locket, whose fragments take the form of a swallow and a star. Season 3 follows Geralt’s journey to Aretuza’s fortress, as he once again escorts Ciri of Cintra (Freya Allan), who is revealed to have ancient blood running through her veins. Anya Chalotra returns to play Yennefer the sorceress, who has a complicated relationship with him.
Plot details for The Witcher season 3 are sketchy, but hints from the teaser image indicate that this chapter will see the trio working together to protect Ciri from danger. For the uninitiated, the swallow symbol translates to Zireael, which is an old gwyhyr sword forged by gnomes in Tir Tochair, given to Ciri as a gift. Meanwhile, the backwards star symbol is obsidian, which is worn by Yennefer in both the Netflix series and the CD Projekt Red video games.

In season 2, Geralt (Cavill) discovered that Ciri possessed some otherworldly powers, far beyond the knowledge of a monster hunter. Therefore, he seeks the help of her former lover Yennefer to understand her complexities and how he could dominate her to avoid any danger. But upon reaching Aretuza’s grounds, the group realizes that they have landed on a battlefield, brimming with political corruption, dark magic, and treachery.

Filming for The Witcher season 3 began in April, with Netflix revealing its four-director lineup. This includes Stephen Surjik (The Umbrella Academy), Gandja Monteiro (Brand New Cherry Flavor), Loni Peristere (American Horror Story), and Bola Ogun (Lucifer).
Everyone except Surjik, who directed the first two episodes of The Witcher season 2, is new to the world of The Witcher. Going by past trends and the fact that there are four directors, we could assume that each director will direct two episodes each, in the upcoming season. The Witcher Season 3 also brings in new members Meng’er Zhang (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) and Robbie Amell (The Babysitter).
The Witcher 3 will be released in the summer of 2023, exclusively on Netflix. Mind you, that’s the American summer, not Indian.
