We’re just a few weeks away from the return of Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia on December 17, when Season 2 of Netflix’s The Witcher will finally release. Behind the scenes, strings are already being pulled to get Season 3 on the way and now we have word on what exactly is going on.
Today’s news comes via reliable NSFW site Recapped, a source that has proven right countless of times in the past when it comes to The Witcher. The gist of the message is: Casting for Season 3 is already underway!
Ahead of the premiere of season 2 of The Witcher, they’re currently casting roles for season 3. The major recurring role we’ve seen is for a female actress in their 20s to play a student that is brainwashed into believing they’re someone else. Tentative dates for this role are February to July 2022.
This gives Witcher fans a lot to speculate about. Like who is the brainwashed student? At first glance the role doesn’t sound very familiar. Could this be an original character or is it someone we know from the books?
Recapped also provides a rough estimate of filming dates from February to July 2022. Six months of filming for major character sounds reasonable, provided of course we won’t have to deal with the same difficulties that plagued Season 2.
What does this mean for the Season 3 release date?
Well, If everything goes according to plan, we could see The Witcher Season 3 released roughly 8-9 months after filming wraps just like Season 1 and Season 2, which would place the Season 3 release date in Spring 2023!
Tell us if you have any theory about the new character. Season 3 is now officially on the horizon and we can’t wait to hear more about it shortly. Stay tuned!
