Clear your schedule and stock your mead supply because The Witcher has been renewed for Season 3 before Season 2 even hits Netflix on December 17, per Variety. The announcement was made as part of the streaming service's "Tudum" event. Did you know that "Tudum" is supposed to be the sound the Netflix logo makes? Isn't that wild? I honestly keep forgetting they've branded a sound and then cackle.

Will this be the last season?

As for more Witcher, can you blame the folks at Netflix? Insert joke about the "law of surprise" here, because I'm not surprised. The show was so popular when Season 1 hit and is sure to make a splash with Season 2. Henry Cavill is so dreamy in the role. There are so many books (six, in fact) to adapt new seasons from, as well as a trilogy of video games and graphic novels.

Do we know what season 3 will be about?

While we don't know exactly what the new season will be about, the books should give us a bit of a clue as to what to expect.

But wait — there's more! An animated film in the Witcher universe called Nightmare of the Wolf dropped on the streaming service in 2021. It stars Theo James (Divergent, Sanditon), Laura Pulver (Sherlock), and Graham McTavish (Outlander), NBD. According to Variety, this film leads up to the events in the "Conjunction of the Spheres"and if that confuses you, you are not alone. I'm pretty good at following fantasy jargon but The Witcher really lost me there a couple of times. I didn't even realize there were multiple timelines when I was watching for the first time. It's a good thing everyone is so easy on the eyes. The "Conjunction of the Spheres" is an event in the fantasy universe that happened way in the past and resulted in magic spreading through the land.

There's also going to be a prequel/spin-off series called The Witcher: Blood Origin. Netflix is really committed to expanding the world. They're looking at making some more family-friendly shows in the "Witcherverse" too. I would expect all things Witcher to be around for a long, long time.

When will season 3 be released?

While we probably won't see Season 3 until late 2022, rumor has it that filming will begin very soon. The second season was one of many television productions that halted during the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and resumed under restrictions and precautions. They wrapped in April of 2021. One can only imagine that it will be smoother sailing this time around, and we won't have to wait so long for more.
