While an exact release date wasn’t given, it was revealed that The Witcher Season 3 will release in the summer of 2023. That narrows down the release quite a bit, so fans can expect more information on the third installment of the fantasy series closer to release.

The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family, which centers around a solitary monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, a powerful sorceress Yennefer, and a young Cintrian princess Ciri as they learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together. The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Princess Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, MyAnna Buring as Tissaia, and Joey Batey as Jaskier.
“As monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri of Cintra into hiding, determined to protect his newly-reunited family against those who threaten to destroy it,” says the official synopsis for the third season. “Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where she hopes to discover more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they discover they’ve landed in a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery. They must fight back, put everything on the line — or risk losing each other forever.”
