It’s been nearly two months since Geralt of Rivia, Ciri, and Yennefer of Vengerberg returned to slay monsters, upend political orders, and otherwise adventure across the Continent in season 2 of The Witcher. Netflix’s monster-hunting fantasy show has been an enormous hit for the platform, with approximately 2.2 billion minutes streamed during its release week. Those are huge numbers, and have no doubt reassured Netflix that its decision to go all in on expanding the franchise into a cinematic universe is a good one. The studio has already released the Nightmare of the Wolf animated prequel film, and sometime this year they’re going to be dropping the Blood Origin live-action prequel series as well. Add to that the Witcher kids show that’s in the works and who knows how many more seasons of the mothership show, and we can look forward to many years of witchering to come.
But for fans of Geralt, Yen and Ciri’s tale specifically, the obvious question looming is when exactly we’ll get to see season 3?
As of right now, there is no confirmed release date for season 3 of The Witcher on Netflix. Considering that the show has yet to begin filming, it’s entirely likely we’ll be waiting a while to see Henry Cavill don the white wig again. All we know right now is that the scripts are written and that the show is in pre-production. As soon as filming begins, we’ll be shouting it from the top of the tower at Aretuza.
On the bright side, that Blood Origin prequel series we mentioned is likely to be coming out some day not too far from now. Netflix released a trailer for the limited series starring Michelle Yeoh as a post-credits stinger for The Witcher’s season 2 finale. It’s been confirmed that Blood Origin will be coming in 2022. While we don’t have a month yet, the fact that Netflix has already released a trailer bodes well. It means that even if the show still has more work to do, they’re comfortable enough with where it’s at to show us at least a part of it.

For now, The Witcher seasons 1 and 2 are still available on Netflix to stream. And for the full experience, make sure to slot Nightmare of the Wolf in between the seasons as well.
