Henry Cavill poses in Geralt's new armor as Geralt of Rivia in season 2 of 'The Witcher'

Prepare for Henry Cavill’s Final Turn as ‘The Witcher’ in the Full Season 3 Trailer

Can we get some onscreen Geralt/Jaskier this season?

Out of all the shows currently on, The Witcher feels like the bane of my existence. I consume each season right when it hits Netflix and end up watching it multiple times because the next season takes forever to come out. It is just too good and I can’t go without it for too long. I even wrote an article about similar shows because I only want media like The Witcher. It is truly a problem. I know I am not the only one who is obsessed, as Netflix is producing a Witcher spinoff series.

Netflix usually keeps news for The Witcher pretty tight under wraps, but filming for season 3 of the hit series wrapped last September, and it’s taken quite a bit of time for new news to trickle out, but as its release approaches, we’re slowly learning more about what to expect.

The Witcher season 3 trailer

During the Summer Game Fest 2023, a full trailer for The Witcher’s third season on Netflix finally dropped—the last season with Henry Cavill in the lead role as Geralt. Otherworldly threats and monsters aplenty are after Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer. The most shocking part of the trailer may be that Geralt thinks Jaskier is actually right about something. Although we will soon be saying goodbye to Cavill’s version of the Witcher, hopefully he’ll go out with a bang.

The Witcher season 3 release date

For a while, all we knew was that season 3 would come out sometime this summer. Then, Netflix officially announced that the new season will be broken into two parts. Volume one releases on June 29 and volume two on July 27. On the bright side, we won’t have to wait two years between new episodes, but right now summer feels a long way away.

The Witcher season 3 cast

The main cast we know and love will return for season 3, including Geralt (Henry Cavill), his beloved bard Jaskier (Joey Batey), sorceress Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), head Witcher Vesemir (Kim Bodnia), and Geralt’s adopted daughter/Witcher-in-training Ciri (Freya Allan). Of course, there are secondary characters, like Fringilla (Mimi Ndiweni), who will hopefully return as well.

The Witcher season 3 teaser

Along with an official premiere date, Netflix also released a teaser trailer for The Witcher season 3. It’s short—not even a minute long—but whoever cut this trailer knows exactly how to get our attention. The opening moments show Geralt getting ready for a monster fight. He drinks a potion and his eyes go black in that way that makes the fangirls swoon. There’s a lot of action and we see snippets of Yennefer, Ciri, and Jaskier. It also is evident that the Wild Hunt has come to the Continent and is an imminent threat. It may be Cavill’s last time playing the Witcher, but it looks to be a memorable season.

The Witcher season 3 plot

At the end of season 2, our heroes discovered Ciri was an elf descendant of great magical power. Ciri, Geralt, and Yennefer stepped into a different realm to release the evil brewing in their home world. While there, the Wild Hunt appeared and rode towards Ciri. The heroes made it back safely, but it seems like the Wild Hunt (specters that bring war and destruction) will eventually find their way to the Continent. Although not much of the plot has been confirmed, it would fall in line with the third Witcher video game, The Wild Hunt.

As always, we’ll keep you up to date on all Witcher news as it gets released!
