Netflix has greenlit a third season of its live-action The Witcher series starring Henry Cavill.
That’s according to a new listing on the Writer’s Guild of America West directories – spotted by Redanian Intelligence – which references ‘Season 3’, with executive producer and showrunner Lauren Hissrich attached.
Season two of The Witcher entered production in the UK in February ahead of a planned release in 2021, but was paused due to the coronavirus. Netflix resumed shooting in August.
Key players from season one will return for season two, including monster hunter Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Cholatra), princess Ciri (Freya Allan) and Jaskier (Joey Batey).
UPDATE: Netflix has released new images of Series 2:
Joining the cast are Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones) as Nivellen, Yasen Atour (Young Wallander) as Coen, Agnes Bjorn (Monster) as Vereena, Thue Ersted Rasmussen (Fast and Furious 9) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia and Mecia Simson as Francesca.
Netflix is also making an anime film called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, as well as prequel series Blood Origin. Netflix has confirmed plans to shoot Blood Origin in the UK but hasn’t announced when the series will be released.
