While the third season of Netflix’s The Witcher is preparing for release in June and July, active work has already begun on Season 4 and subsequently Season 5, which are planned to be filmed back-to-back. Casting is already underway with us already reporting on Zoltan Chivay’s audition.
Lucinda Wright Continues on The Witcher
Costume work is also one of the things that The Witcher is allowed to do amid writers strike. As such, we can confirm that costume designer Lucinda Wright will return for Season 4 and most likely Season 5 of The Witcher.
Wright started her work on The Witcher in Season 2 and had Henry Cavill actively contributing to the creation of his then-new armor. She also got praise for reinventing the now-infamous Nilfgaardian armor after taking over from Tim Aslam.
Her newer outfits for Yennefer, however, garnered quite a bit of criticism among fans, which likened them to inexpensive H&M clothes. Episode 6 of Season 3 will feature the Thanedd coup and that will be interesting to see from the costumes perspective.
Season 4 of The Witcher is currently planned to be filming from September 2023 to May 2024, although these dates aren’t set in stone and are subject to change.
A release date would be hard to predict, but Season 1 wrapped in May 2019 and was released in December of the same year, so a December 2024 release for The Witcher Season 4 would be possible if they wanted to.
The Witcher Season 3 is available on Netflix with The Rats prequel in post-production and The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep anime by Studio Mir is far in production. Stay tuned to Redanian Intelligence and do pop into our Discord server to join in on The Witcher conversation.
