It is time to get your coins ready as we have all waited on the release date for the highly anticipated season three of Netflix’s The Witcher. With all of us spiraling after hearing of Henry Cavill’s exit from the show, it isn’t a secret how interested we all are to see just what Netflix does in the upcoming season. After teasing an announcement on their social media pages, the platform dropped not one, but two release dates for the latest season, as well as a first-look trailer of Henry Cavill’s final ride as Geralt.
In the official trailer released by Netflix on their Youtube earlier this morning, we see a glimpse into Henry Cavill’s final ride as Geralt of Rivia. In the action-packed one-minute trailer, it says “Everything Changes,” which couldn’t be more true given the latest news we received back in November 2022 from the platform. The show appears to be taking a haunting turn as Geralt drinks a liquid turning his eyes completely black as he says, “For the first time, I understand real fear.” It does bring me joy to see all of our favorites returning to their roles including Freya Allen, Anya Chalotra, and Joey Batey.
Henry Cavill is set to exit the series after season three with Liam Hemsworth to take his spot. With rumors flying after this announcement, fans even began a petition to keep Cavill in the series and the petition hit 200,000 signatures.
Two-Part Release for Season 3
Following the trailer announcement, the official Twitter account for The Witcher announced the series is releasing in two parts. The first volume of the latest season is set to release June 29, with the second volume to follow a month later on July 27. The second volume of the series holds the final three episodes of the season.
While we can’t wait for more monster hunting, catchy songs, and gore, it is sad to think of Cavill exiting the show after the season we will all binge watch and finish by July 30 (just a few days after volume two releases, of course). I’m sure we will all finish volume one by July 1 at the latest. That gives us just enough time to restart the entire show before volume two comes out.
In the meantime, if you need another show to satisfy your Witcher fix before season three premieres, make sure to start The Witcher: Blood Origin on Netflix. You can also read the books. We went ahead and picked the best reading order for them, so you didn’t have to here.
