During Netflix’s TUDUM 2022 fan event, Henry Cavill himself took a moment to announce that The Witcher season three will return in the summer of 2023. That’s right; we are less than a year away from diving back into this monster-filled world. But that wasn’t all! The cast of The Witcher: Blood Origin also dropped their release date announcement.

The worlds promise to be packed with action, monsters, singing bards and magic. Tons of magic. Season three of The Witcher sees the story pick back up as Geralt (Cavill), Ciri (Freya Allan), and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) head off to find safety and answers at Aretuza. Unbeknownst to them, the school is not the place Yennefer left in season two. Now, it is a politically charged battlefield brewing with dark magic and treachery. And we can’t help but remind everyone that Tissaia (MyAnna Buring) is working behind the scenes to capture Ciri.

The Witcher: Blood Origin takes us back 1200 years before the current events and introduces us to the world before the conjunction. We will also see the creation of the first Witcher and the fall of the once-powerful Elven civilization. The series will star Sophia Brown, Michelle Yeoh, Laurence O’Fuarain, Lenny Henry, Mirren Mack, Nathaniel Curtis and many more. It was also announced during TUDUM 2022 that Minnie Driver would join the cast for the first season in an undisclosed role.
