They tweeted, “This summer, everything changes,” alongside the first teaser. Season 3 of “The Witcher” premieres on June 29. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich confirmed to Digital Spy in November 2021 that development on Season 3 scripts had begun.
“This season’s writing staff is superb. The writers on this program have always been fantastic,” Lauren remarked. However, in my opinion, this season in particular had… People who had seen the first season and the second season screenings joined us, and it was fascinating to see how their presence altered the dynamic of the room. They brought with them new ideas and perspectives, and they pushed me to consider things I hadn’t previously given much thought to.

Henry Cavill, who played Geralt in the first two seasons and will return for the third, will not be continuing with The Witcher once the third season airs.
Henry Cavill’s departure from the series has been the subject of several speculations.

Stories have circulated that Cavill departed the program due to creative disputes with the writers.

The Witcher Official Revealed Some New Cast
— The Witcher (@witchernetflix) April 14, 2022
Robbie Amell’s as “Gallatin” may be heard in “Upload,” “Code 8,” and “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.”
Gallatin is a born fighter who leads an army of Scoia’tael guerrillas fighting for Nilfgaard. Gallatin is unafraid to speak his mind, and his dedication to his people brings him into conflict with Francesca about who should hold political authority.
Meng’er Zhang’s as Milva (Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings).
Milva, the adopted human daughter of the dryads of Brokilon Forest, is a fearless and skilled huntress. Accurate archery and a steely instinct for survival make her a dangerous opponent on the harsh Continent; anybody who crosses her does so at their own peril.
Hugh Skinner as Prince Radovid (Following Mamma Mia!, Figaro, and Fleabag)
Radovid, the royal playboy and younger brother of King Vizimir is now a man deep within the Redanian Intelligence. Radovid’s excellent looks and frequent inebriation don’t prevent him from being charming, and he occasionally surprises with his political acumen.
Christelle Elwin’s “Mistle” (Half Bad, Bloods)
Mistle is a part of the youth gang known as The Rats, whose members steal from the wealthy to distribute the proceeds among themselves and, on occasion, the less fortunate. Until a fateful encounter, she is a street tough who is wary of everyone and bent on vengeance.
What Happens in The Witcher Season 3?
The official plot summary for the program teases, “As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it.”
Yennefer, who has been entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, takes the two to the fortified city of Aretuza in the hopes of learning more about the young girl’s latent abilities. Instead, they find themselves in the middle of a conflict rife with political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. They have to fight back and risk losing each other for good if they don’t.
It comes from someone who should know that “Money aside: S3 is huge,” and that person is Lauren S Hissrich. She is also aware of financial constraints but makes it plain that she does not wish to discuss specifics.

After the mayhem of the season two finale, the following batch of episodes will center on Ciri’s role as a potential world-ender (or maybe savior, if season four is ever to be realized). Even the princess’s (now-dead) father is among the many people who want to control her power for their own ends. However, with Geralt and Yennefer by her side, Ciri can finally rest easier.
How Many Episodes of The Witcher Season 3 Can We Expect?
The length of The Witcher season three has not been announced by Netflix, but if the prior two seasons are any indication, it will include eight episodes. Given the expanding scope of the Witcherverse, it wouldn’t be surprising if season three were to be extended to ten episodes, giving us even more witchy goodness.
Netflix reported that in the three days after the premiere of Season 2, its users logged a total of 142.4 million hours of viewing time. Between December 13 and 19, The Witcher has 49.1 million hours of viewership, making it the second most popular show in the world. So, it’s clear that adding two or three more episodes to Season 3 wouldn’t be a waste of money for Netflix.
