After a highly watched season 2, Netflix confirms the start of production for season 3 of The Witcher. An image on the set and the overall frame adorn the news.
When a program is a hit, according to the group’s criteria, Netflix gives its all, as with the series The Witcher. It is therefore no big surprise that the SVOD giant formalizes the launch of season 3 with a photo.
The Witcher: the first details of season 3
As if the temperatures weren’t low enough already, here’s the first image for season 3 of the Netflix series The Witcher under the snow. We can see, seated calmly on their folding chairs, Henry Cavill (Geralt de Riv), Freya Allan (Ciri), and Anya Chalotra (Yennefer de Vengerberg).
It’s not much, it’s true, and that’s why the firm with the red N split a second tweet to reveal The Witcher season 3 synopsis.
As monarchs, mages, and beasts across the continent vie to capture her, Geralt hides Ciri, determined to protect her newly reunited family from those who threaten to destroy her. Responsible for the magical training of Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer brings them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to find out more about the girl’s untapped powers. Instead, they find they’ve landed on a battleground of political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. They must fight back, put it all on the line – or risk losing themselves forever.
Season 2 is one of Netflix’s biggest hits
To produce this burst of episodes of The Witcher, the company surrounds itself with directors who have worked on series produced or broadcast by Netflix. We will thus have Stephen Surjik (Reacher, The Umbrella Academy), Gandja Monteiro (Brand New Cherry Flavor, The Chi), Loni Peristere (American Horror Story, A Series of Unfortunate Events), and Bola Ogun (Raising Dion, Lucifer).
Good news for fans after the long wait for season 2 which, despite the production problems linked to the Covid, took everything in its path. It is in the top 10 of the most viewed series on the platform, during the first 28 days, with more than 540 million hours viewed, ahead of more mainstream programs such as Emily in Paris or You.
