When asked about the Witcher Season 3 plot and budget, the showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich just replies with the words ‘S3 is huge’.
The novel by Andrzej Sapkowski, a Polish Author, is the foundation of the Witcher Series released on Netflix. Along with the short stories, the series is based on the Witcher video games played by many in the world. Netflix’s Witcher Series give the world the translation of Sapkowski’s stories in the English language.
The Witcher Season 1 was released in the year 2019, which introduced various crucial characters for the plotline. The characters include a Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, played by Henry Cavill; a powerful mage, Yennefer of Vengerberg, played by Anya Chalotra; and a young girl, Princess Cirilla of Cintra, played by Freya Allan.
There are various important characters in the series, but the story revolves around the trio. The Witcher Season 1 was appreciated by many but also criticized a lot because of its confusing timeline explaining the story of each character.
The Witcher Season 2 was released in the year 2021, which was praised a lot by the audience as it doesn’t include the chaotic timeline and entailed a lot of horrifying and deadly monsters. Season 2 focuses more on the relationship of Geralt and Ciri, as a father-daughter relationship, where Geralt, being the father, is training Ciri and protecting her from the dangers of the world.
The Witcher Season 2 ended with the trio coming together and starting a journey, Yennefer and Geralt protecting Ciri, and the whole world is aware of Ciri’s potential to destroy the world. Ciri is the key for which everyone is killing and fighting. The whole world, particularly the biggest villains, wants to use Ciri’s power for their own benefit.
The Witcher new season is on its way, and the fans are eager to explore how the trio acts and travels together, protecting each other from the dangers. The Witcher Season 3 release date hasn’t been officially announced yet, but the fans are pondering that it might release at the beginning of 2023.
The Witcher Season 3 – Lauren S. Hissrich
The current Witcher news is that the showrunner, Lauren S. Hissrich, has teased that season 3 will be ‘huge.’ The word ‘huge’ is a vague and subjective word, and, unfortunately, it has been used as the extent of tease.
On the popular social media platform Twitter, Lauren was questioned by a few fans about the budget for season 3 as compared to the other seasons. The showrunner used the opportunity to tease and replied, ‘Money aside: S3 is huge.’
Whatever we can interpret, the tease about season 3 being ‘huge’ may indicate that as compared to the previous seasons, the Witcher Season 3 will be the most ambitious one yet, presumably from a production view of point. However, for now, no more official news has been shared about the Witcher season 3.
The Witcher Season 3 was given the green light before the release of the Witcher season 2 on Netflix. According to a report on January 6, the filming of the Witcher season 3 was supposed to happen this month, but so far, nothing has been done, and this month is almost over. There has been no official news about its filming or any other process.
Whatever the case may be, the Witcher Season 3 filming should begin soon, as the fans’ excitement for Season 3 has been increasing day by day. The source material for the Witcher Season 3 is the book named ‘Time of Contempt’ where the journey of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri takes place in a world full of challenges.
