We are still recovering from the great revelations that came with an amazing season 2 of The Witcher. It has been mere months since season 2 dropped, and we were not hoping to hear any big news about the newest season. However, the team of The Witcher seems to be in a mood to surprise us all with season 3.
We have a huge update and fresh new pictures of the cast to blow your minds away.
The Witcher season 3- new update
The streamer uploaded a shot from The Witcher‘s third season set in the snow, with three of the key cast members dressed up and ready for the new chapter to begin filming. Season 3 is based on author Andrzej Sapkowski‘s second novel in The Witcher narrative. So season 3 will focus on the growing conflict between the Northern Kingdoms and Nilfgaard.

With the first look at the trio, Netflix has also announced an official synopsis for the show. To give you a gist of the synopsis, in season 3, Geralt and Ciri take shelter in the fortress of Aretuza, thanks to Yennefer.
Yennefer wishes to help Ciri with her powers and be away from all trouble. But it looks like trouble is looking for them.
We also have new directors on board for the show as well. The Witcher always includes great visionary directors to helm the season. And Netflix has chosen veteran directors, Stephen surjik (Reacher, The Umbrella Academy) Gandja Monteiro (Brand New Cherry Flavor, The Chi), Loni Peristere (American Horror Story, A Series of Unfortunate Events), and Bola Ogun (Raising Dion, Lucifer) to lead the third season of the show.
Now that filming has begun, we should be getting more on-set photos like Cavill’s recent photo with Roach. The filming schedule of The Witcher for the week is already revealed, so we know where they will be next.
It is a great sign that they have begun shooting. If all goes to plan and Covid does not hit, we should be getting The Witcher season 3 next year. But no official news as of now has been announced about the release date. So no promises.
With a prequel, The Witcher: Blood Origins coming later this year, fans of the show will not remain empty-handed like last year.
So what do you think about the cast pictures? What could they be shooting? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
