The Witcher Renewed for Season 3 — Plus, Watch a 'Road to Season 2' Trailer

·2 min read

The Witcher‘s Netflix run is looking to be as sprawling as the fantasy saga itself, now that the streaming series has already been renewed for a third season — months ahead of its Season 2 premiere.

Netflix made the renewal announcement on Saturday at its inaugural “TUDUM” global fan event, while also releasing a new Season 2 trailer (above) and a pair of sneak peeks (embedded down below).

It was also announced that a second Witcher anime feature as well as a new series for kids and family are in the works.

Based on the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher stars Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter struggling to find his place in the world when destiny unites him, a powerful sorceress and a young princess as they navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

The official synopsis for Season 2 tells us this: Convinced that Yennefer’s (Anya Chalotra) life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) to the safest place he knows — his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.

The Witcher Season 2 will premiere Friday, Dec. 17 — almost exactly two years since Season 1 was released. Netflix previously unveiled titles for seven of the eight upcoming installments: “A Grain of Truth,” “Kaer Morhen,” “What Is Lost,” “Redanian Intelligence,” “Turn Your Back,” “Dear Friend” and “Voleth Meir.” (The finale’s title, meanwhile, remains a secret?)
