The Witcher Season 3 to enter production in early 2022


Everyone is eagerly waiting for The Witcher Season 2 on December 17, but the work on the next season doesn’t stay still and the scripts are being written as we speak. If you recall, Season 3 of The Witcher will have a number of new writers who started their work this July. We were wondering when filming for the next season would begin and now we have a window.

Thanks to the newest listing on Production Weekly, we now know that Season 3 of The Witcher is planned to enter production in the first quarter of 2022. But bear in mind that production schedules are never solid and are always subject to change, especially in a post-covid world. Nevertheless, at least now we approximately know the production window and when Netflix wants to get things underway.

Contact info blacked out for privacy reasons. Also disregard the locations and directors. That is old info.

Season 3 will also have a significant change: instead of Arborfield Studios, production will move to Longcross Studios, which isn’t too far from Arborfield. This will make the third production hub in three seasons. Will The Witcher finally find a permanent home at Longcross? We shall wait and see. For everything else, here’s our breakdown of everything we know so far about The Witcher Season 3:

Season 2 cannot come soon enough, but it’s very pleasant to have our minds already engaged with Season 3 as well. We’ll know more information soon enough so stay tuned for that!

  1. this is not a good news. It does not mean it is bad either. However GOT team was able to make 1 season every year. It required 2 extra episodes as well – total of 10 with incomparable complexity and number of characters. Also writing was superb, for most of season you had people talking and you were at the edge of your seat.

    But I have a feeling season 2 is gonna be much better than season 1 though. Fingers crossed. Anime was great as a movie but deviations from the books are more and more concerning, because they do not raise the bar up but in different direction unfortunately.

  2. Yes, the deviations from the books…are on one hand necessary, but on the other hand, some seem not only unnecessary, but perhaps even counterproductive. I mean, killing off Moussack and, if rumors are true, Eskel in season 2, makes it impossible to have those characters appear again later. Their deaths are not in the books, as far as I remember, and they reappear in The Witcher 3 game. Are their deaths now written in for increased drama? It seems not really too great an idea because it reduces options, like building an arc over to TW3 narrative that many fans would like to see, given that some characters already seem to resemble those in the game more than in the books. Possibly it signals that the showrunners are planning with a limited number of seasons so that some options don’t appear needed.

    1. I think the Thanedd Coup will appear towards the end of season two. Otherwise the story would be very much stretched. But what after the Thanedd Coup? Then the books are entering a somewhat strange mode and pick up the feeling like a Western or road movie, that is what I thought when I read the books and I didn’t like that too much. I wonder how the writers are going to get around all that. I am even more curious how the Falcka story will be related. In the books the story is told through some of the figures but I wonder if that is an option for a cinematic format. Perhaps flashback scenes? Apparently there will be flashback scenes for the Lara Dorren backstory.

  3. That’s good news, I hope it won’t take another two years to watch it. On the other hand maybe the delayed did s2 good. I think they had the time to get feedback and to revisit some of the scripts. And the production values seem so much better. I hope s2 will be great and I’m so happy for s3.
