Filming for the third season of Netflix’s hit series ‘The Witcher’ officially wrapped today (September 9) in London, UK. Filming will take place in various locations across the UK from April 4 this year.

The previous season’s production was hit hard by the pandemic and this season also suffered a slight setback when Henry Cavill tested positive for Covid in late July. However, filming continued without the lead actor, and production was not affected much overall.

The end of production was confirmed by director Bola Ogun, who shared the news via her Insta story minutes after the official end. Season 3 episodes are directed by Stephen Surjik, Gandja Monteiro, Loni Peristere and Bola Ogun. Season 3 post-production will begin soon and is expected to take over six months. We can expect The Witcher Season 3 to release in the summer of 2023.

Earlier, season 3 added four new actors to the cast – Robbie Amell as Gallatin, Meng’er Zhang plays Milva, Hugh Skinner as Prince Radovid, and Christelle Elwin as Mistle. The returning cast for the upcoming season includes Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Bart Edwards, Mimî M. Khayisa, Royce Pierreson, Wilson Mbomio and Mecia Simson.

In season 3, as monarchs, mages, and creatures across the continent battle to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra underground, determined to protect her newly reunited family from those who threaten to destroy her. Yennefer, in charge of Ciri’s magical training, guides them to the safe citadel of Aretuza, hoping to learn more about the girl’s latent powers; instead, they find themselves on a battleground of political corruption, dark magic, and betrayal. They must fight back, risk it all or risk losing themselves forever.

In the Season 2 finale, Ciri takes Geralt and Yennefer to an unknown world, where Voleth Meir abandons Yennefer’s body. Ciri, Geralt, and Yennefer witness the Wild Hunt plotting to kidnap Ciri as Voleth Meir recreates her body and joins them. Yennefer returns to Kaer Morhen after fleeing this world to find her powers have returned. Ciri cannot stay in Kaer Morhen, Geralt realizes. The Brotherhood and the surviving Northern rulers put a bounty on Ciri and her protectors after discovering that Vizimir was pursuing her. The blood of Ciri’s Elders is revealed to Francesca by Istredd, and she knows that Ciri represents the hope of the elves. Emperor Emhyr arrives in Cintra and says he murdered Francesca’s baby; he arrests Fringilla and Cahir for lying to her and is later revealed to be Ciri’s father, Duny.
