The third season of Netflix’s The Witcher is already deep in post-production after having wrapped earlier in September 2022. While the Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan-starring series is getting edited and Michelle Yeoh-starring Blood Origin is getting ready for its release in December, the future doesn’t wait.
Next chapters of The Witcher are in the works
To do a quick recap, a month ago we reported that the team behind The Witcher had intentions to write and film The Witcher Season 4 and Season 5 back-to-back. We also mentioned that writing for those seasons should begin shortly.
And indeed, we are now hearing that the script work for The Witcher Season 4 and 5 has just begun this October.
As far as we know, it’s only very early days and the writing should take a good chunk of 2023. If the previous seasons are an indicator, filming shouldn’t begin until after Season 3 is released, which means sometime after Summer 2023.
Additionally, as far as we know, the writing team is pretty much exactly the same as in Season 3. They were Lauren Hissrich, Mike Ostrowski, Tania Lotia, Haily Hall, Rae Benjamin, Clare Higgins, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Matthew D’Ambrosio and Troy Dangerfield.
Speaking of the writers’ team, it appears that Matthew D’Ambrosio has been promoted to the position of a producer, which he announced on his Twitter. He didn’t name the project, but he didn’t have to. Therefore, congratulations are in order!
Season 3 of The Witcher is in post-production for a Summer 2023 release. The live-action prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin has been set a Christmas 2022 release. Stay tuned to Redanian Intelligence and do pop into our Discord server to join in on The Witcher conversation.
