When exactly will “The Witcher” season 3 start streaming on Netflix? We tell you when you can expect exciting new episodes of the fantasy series!

  • Netflix publishes the release date of The Witcher season 3.
  • The new episodes will be released on June 29, 2023. The season will be shown in two parts.
  • An exciting trailer also shows what Ciri, Yennifer and Geralt can expect in the new episodes.

Netflix has announced the release date for its successful fantasy series “The Witcher“. The 3rd season will be released in two parts on Netflix this time. In the first part, five episodes will be released on June 29, 2023, and then only on July 27 you will receive the remaining three episodes of the series in the second part.

In the meantime, Netflix is choosing this route more and more frequently for its top series such as You Will Love Me, Stranger Things and The Glory.

The Witcher: What to expect in Season 3

Season 2 left viewers with a massive cliffhanger: in the season two finale, viewers learned who the “White Flame is.” Emhyr var Emreis is actually Duny, Ciri’s father. In season 3, this cliffhanger is to be topped by another twist.

Yennifer and Geralt must once again protect Ciri from numerous dangers in the new episodes. Not only is the Wild Hunt on the lookout for her, but these characters also hunted down the princess.

When the news of Henry Cavill’s exit from the series came last year, many viewers were disappointed. He will continue to play the lead role as Geralt of Riva in Season 3 of “The Witcher,” and it won’t be until Season 4 that his fellow actor Liam Hemsworth will take over. But until then, Cavill is to receive a “heroic farewell” to his character, which we are particularly excited about.

The Witcher Books: This is what the Netflix series is based on

“The Witcher” is based on the Geralt saga by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The story of the witcher is told in five volumes. There are also three short story anthologies and a self-contained novel. Here’s a list of all the Witcher books on which “The Witcher” is based in an overview.

Season 1 mainly uses the two short story collections “The Last Wish” and “The Sword of Destiny”. The book template for season 2 is “Blood of Elves”. The third season is based on the volume “The Time of Contempt”. The video game series “The Witcher” does not serve as a template for the Netflix series, but is its own interpretation of the same book series. Here’s a guide to Read The Witcher Books in Order.

The Witcher Timeline: What time period is The Witcher set in?

The Netflix series is set in a fictional world called a continent, which has its own calendar. Plot-wise, Geralt experiences adventures in the years 1231 to 1243. The first season is told with numerous time jumps that are not explained further. We explain the timeline of The Witcher!

The Witcher Filming Locations: Where was The Witcher filmed?

The fictional world of the continent is largely brought to life in a film studio near London, UK. But the backdrop of northern England was also used. In addition, filming took place in Hungary (Budapest), the Canary Islands and Poland, for example at Ogrodzieniec Castle near Krakow. Recordings also took place at Kreuzenstein Castle in Austria.

Filming also took place in Hungary and South Africa. The showrunner is Lauren Schmidt-Hissrich, who is sure that the story will last for years of production of the series.
