The Witcher season 3 Netflix: poster shows Henry Cavill’s final run - how to watch trailer, release date
and live on Freeview channel 276
Fans finally got a long awaited update on The Witcher season three which will feature Henry Cavill’s final appearance as Geralt of Rivia. Netflix dropped the official trailer for the upcoming third season which included a release date.
The poster does a good job to set the tone for what’s to come with Cavill’s Geralt holding a terrified looking Ciri, played by Freya Allan, and Anya Chalotra’s Yennefer looking straight into our souls. The action packed trailer mirrors this tone with Cavill being heard saying “Now, for the first time, I understand real fear.”
Fans first learned the news of season three at Netflix’s TUDUM event in September 2021. In that time, Netflix has announced not only a fourth season of the show, but also some major casting changes.
Hunger Games’ alum Liam Hemsworth is set to take over the role of Geralt from season four onwards but it’s unclear what this casting shake up will look like for the show going forward. The news came after Cavill, who has fronted the show from day one, made the shocking announcement that he would be departing the record-breaking show.
So, when is The Witcher season 3 set to release and who will return? Here’s everything you need to know including how to watch.
The Witcher season 3 release date
The latest trailer for season three confirmed that the series would be split into two parts with volume one dropping on June 29, and volume two dropping on July 27.
The Witcher season 3 what to expect
In November 2021, showrunner Lauren S Hissrich revealed to Digital Spy that the writers’ room had already begun working on scripts for season three.
She told the publication: “The writers’ room this season is incredible. I mean, we’ve always had incredible writers on the show. But I feel that this season specifically had… We had some new people come in, and it was really interesting how it changed the dynamic of the room, to have this sort of new blood: people who have watched the first season, who then had screened the second season, and came in with fresh, new ideas, who sort of challenged me on things that I hadn’t really thought about before.”
Netflix dropped the intense first trailer for the upcoming season on Tuesday (April 25) along with the caption that reads: “this summer, everything changes. The Witcher Season 3 begins on the 29th of June”.
