Netflix has released a teaser trailer for the upcoming third season of The Witcher, as well as a premiere date.
Season 3 will be the last season that features Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, with Liam Hemsworth set to take over the role in future seasons.
The Witcher follows many colorful characters living on the Continent, but primarily focuses on the Witcher himself: Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill). A monster-killer-for-hire, Geralt travels the Continent to have coins tossed his way in exchange for hunting and killing many dangerous monsters. Geralt’s travels in season 1 introduced us to a variety of characters such as Geralt’s primary love interest, Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), Ciri (Freya Allan), and fan-favorite Jaskier (Joey Batey), all of whom feature heavily in season 2 of the series as well and will undoubtedly win hearts again in season 3.
The plot summary for season 3 reads:
“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. 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.”
The Witcher season 3 begins June 29 on Netflix. Stay tuned with Nerds & Beyond for updates.
