The next season of the Witcher is in the process, and everything we know about the witcher season 3 cast, plot, its release date, and all the information is shared below.
The Witcher Series was released on Netflix in the year 2019, which is based on the witcher books of Andrzej Sapkowski (a Polish Author), and video games of Witcher. The amazing action was shown fighting with monsters in the series, which attracted the whole world. After the release of the first and second season, the Witcher series got itself into the list of top-10 most-viewed series on Netflix.
The audience is more than excited about the next season’s action on Netflix and could not wait for the Witcher Season 3. The Witcher Season 1 includes a witcher, Geralt of Rivia, hunts monsters to earn his living and is on the journey to find his place in the world full of beasts.
Apart from the Witcher, there are other crucial characters, one of which is a powerful sorcerer named Yennefer of Vengerberg, who was first shown with some disability, because she had Elven blood, but later through the magic, a mage gave her a new and beautiful body.
Princess Cirilla of Cintra, a crucial character from the series, is called Ciri. She is popularly known as the Child with Elder Blood, and because of that, she has great potential to end the whole world.
During the attack of Nilfgaard on Cintra, Ciri’s grandmother Queen Calanthe died, giving Ciri a direction towards her destiny. Which was to find Geralt of Rivia, the witcher who would protect her from all the threats in the world.
Season 2 picks up from the point when Ciri fulfills her destiny and meets Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher who has sworn to protect her. The Witcher Season 2 entails the journey of Geralt and Ciri traveling through the Continent to Geralt’s hometown called Kaer Morhen, a place where Geralt was trained as a witcher.
During their journey, both of them encounter dangerous and horrifying monsters. In the Witcher Season 2, two of the biggest villains were introduced: The White Flame and The Wild Hunt.
One incident shown where Ciri was possessed by Deathless Mother named Voleth Meir uses her power to get herself home which was on another sphere where Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer saw the Wild Hunt calling Ciri to join their force for a brief moment. And The White Flame was revealed at the end of Season 2, who is the emperor of Nilfgaard, who was shown in season 1 as the father of Ciri.
The Witcher Season 3, the upcoming season, will pick up from the time where the whole Continent is coming after Ciri, and Geralt and Yennefer are trying to think of ways to protect her. The reason everyone is coming after Ciri is because she has exceptional power inside, and everyone wants to use Ciri for their advantage.

The Witcher Season 3 Plot
There is not a lot of information shared about the witcher season 3 narrative. However, the showrunner mentioned that season 3 would be based on the book ‘Time of Contempt by Andrzej Sapkowski.

The showrunner reveals that the witcher season 3 will include a lot of action. She said, “There’s tons of action, there’s tons of things that are just jaw dropping when you get to them. So we’re really letting that lead our storytelling. Season 3, for example, takes place on a very, very small timeline. Not a lot of time passes, because it doesn’t need to.”
And the lead cast actor, Henry Cavill too, wants the show to follow the books as he was already a fan of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books before the series started. Considering the desires of Henry Cavill and the fans, there is a high chance that the witcher season 3 will be more book accurate, and there will be fewer modifications in the series plot from the books.
