There is now a release date for The Witcher Season 3. The fantasy show will return to Netflix this June, although not all episodes will be available at once.
The third season of The Witcher will be released in two parts, much as how Stranger Things 4 was split into two halves: episodes 1-5 will be available on June 29th, while episodes 6-8 will be available on July 27th. The original premiere date for Season 3 was set for the summer of 2023. A one-minute teaser trailer gave us our first peek at the new season.
Netflix has been trying to expand the Witcher universe since the second season premiered at the end of 2021 with spinoffs like Blood Origin in 2022, which featured Michelle Yeoh and was set a thousand years before Geralt’s time. In addition, there will be an animated series suitable for kids.
The fact that Season 3 of The Witcher will be Liam Hemsworth’s first as Geralt makes it noteworthy. Henry Cavill will be leaving the role after Season 3. Meanwhile, Cavill has moved on to work on an Amazon Warhammer project.
Date Of Season 3 Of The Witcher’s Release
Henry Cavill announced at TUDUM that the third season of The Witcher will premiere in the summer of 2023, despite the show’s usual December release date. As you might imagine, this is tremendous.
The third season of The Witcher will premiere on the streaming service on June 29, 2023, with the first five episodes airing on that date. The second half of the season will consist of three episodes, and it will debut on July 27, 2023. We didn’t anticipate Netflix to break up the season, but this isn’t the first time the service has done so with a major release.
The Witcher is typically made available on Netflix around the winter season. The first two seasons premiered around the holiday season, then in 2022, The Witcher: Blood Origin was released. The third season of The Witcher was expected to be removed off Netflix around the Fourth of July.
Locations And Schedule For Filming The Witcher, Season 3
The first day of principal photography for Season 3 of The Witcher was April 4, 2022. The above image was taken on the first day of filming and features Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia), Anya Chalotra (Yennefer of Vengerberg), and Freya Allan (Princess Cirilla of Cintra).
Croatia, Slovenia, and northern Italy were used as filming locations. For Season 2, production was based out of Arborfield Studios in Berkshire, but according to Redanian Intelligence, Season 3 has relocated to Longcross Studios in England.
Soon after, in early May of 2022, the outlet announced that footage from one of The Witcher’s sets had revealed a brand new set depicting “mysterious Elven ruins.” A possible literary allusion to the ruined elf palace of Shaerrawedd. There are images of the set there that you may check out.

Is There A Trailer For The Witcher Season 3?
We still have a lot to wait for the teaser, considering the show won’t premiere until the summer of 2023. In the meantime, why not revisit the first two seasons to get yourself in the spirit of The Witcher?
Joey Batey, who plays Jaskier, told Cosmopolitan UK, “All I know is that I’m incredibly excited to start it, really.” Yes, we are familiar with some of the rhythms, and Lauren [Schmidt Hissrich] is the kind captain of this ship… spirit of cooperation, etc. All of us are ready to get going, so yeah.
