Everything We Know So Far About The Witcher Season 3 

So far, Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia has traveled across the Continent, making friends and foes along the way, as well as picking up a child surprise and fighting some dangerous beasts. Netflix’s television adaptation of Polish author Andrzej Sapko

So far, Henry Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia has traveled across the Continent, making friends and foes along the way, as well as picking up a child surprise and fighting some dangerous beasts. Netflix’s television adaptation of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy novels has been extended for a third season, which is unsurprising considering the show’s enormous success. 

Season 3 of “The Witcher” will begin up where season 2 left off, with Geralt and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) plotting to stay ahead of the Continent’s nefarious schemes to capture Ciri (Freya Allan). The Northern Kingdoms and the Nilfgaardian Empire value her royal position, so the monster hunter and the sorceress are the only ones who can keep Cintra’s princess safe. 

There’s a lot to talk about with “The Witcher” season 3, including the release date, the plot around Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri’s characters, and the show’s future – which looks brighter than ever given the amount of source material from Sapkowski’s novels still available. It also helps that “The Witcher” has been a huge hit, which may have something to do with Henry Cavill’s star status and familiarity with Geralt, as well as showrunner Lauren Schmidt-dedication Hissrich’s to the novels. 

Without further ado, let’s dive into all we know about season 3 of “The Witcher.” Please proceed with caution since there are spoilers for seasons 1 and 2. 

What will the third season of The Witcher be about? 

Netflix Geralt and his companions will return shortly! Season 1 was based on various short stories set before “The Witcher” novels, and season 2 was based on “Blood of Elves,” the first book in the “The Witcher” serial. Season 3 of “The Witcher” will be based on “Time of Contempt,” the second novel in Sapkowski’s fantasy series, according to showrunner Lauren Schmidt-Hissrich. In the novel, Yennefer, Ciri, and Geralt travel to Aretuza, the Brotherhood’s headquarters, before a coup separates them once more. 

The Northern Kingdoms’ monarchs are also followed as they secretly prepare to go to war against Nilfgaard, completely unconscious to the fact that the Emperor of Nilfgaard is well aware of their plans and is making his own preparations. Season 3 might be a watershed moment for Ciri’s character if the showrunners choose not to use creative license and instead allow the book to take precedence. She is more important than ever to the tale, and the season may finally expound on the role she must play. 

Schmidt-Hissrich also told Polygon that fans may have noticed “The Witcher” season 2’s major concentration on the elven plotline, which wasn’t as prevalent in “Blood of Elves,” the novel it was based on. The producers had a strong reason for focusing on elves: the Scoia’tael, an army of elves fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard, will be introduced in the third season of the show. Schmidt-Hissrich wanted the elven plot to take center stage before digging into the upcoming storyline, so that viewers can grasp where they came from and what they’re going through. Season 3’s Scoia’tael plot was described by the show’s creator as “a fairly brutal, gloomy plotline.” 

Those who have read “Time of Contempt” know that this is the book where the story thickens the most. Political turmoil erupts across the Continent, and Nilfgaard grows stronger and more dangerous. Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer grow as characters swiftly, with hints of their past beginning to emerge. I’d say “The Witcher” fans are in excellent hands with Schmidt-Hissrich in charge of the season. 

Which members of the cast will return for Season 3 of The Witcher? 

Netflix Season 3’s full cast has yet to be announced by Netflix. Nonetheless, we can expect Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, and Joey Batey to return as Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, and Jaskier, respectively. 

Kim Bodnia as Vesemir, Adjoa Andoh as Nenneke, and Bart Edwards as Emperor Emhyr were among the new characters introduced in “The Witcher” season 2. They’re all vital to the trio’s exploits, so we can expect them to return in the third season of the show. The Nilfgaardian ruler, in particular, is the overall enemy throughout “The Witcher” books, and will play a key role in Ciri’s life moving forward, as the season 2 finale reveals. 

When will the third season of The Witcher be released? 

Season 3 of Netflix’s “The Witcher” could premiere in December 2023. Season 2 was delayed indefinitely due to issues emerging from the epidemic, resulting in the series being released two years after its predecessor in 2021. 

Schmidt-Hissrich earlier stated that the season 3 writer’s room will be completed by the end of 2021, and that the show’s scripting was nearly complete. Producer Steve Gaub shared behind-the-scenes photographs of the crew scouting for season 3 locales before the third season began production in January 2022. 

Gaub’s photo transports followers back to the woods, a setting that “The Witcher” fans are all too familiar with. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to see more of “The Witcher” three in the woods. 

Season 3 is set to begin filming in a few months, with Netflix hoping to air it in 2023. Season 3 will undoubtedly follow in the footsteps of the prior two seasons, which were released in December.

Sigourney Weaver is coming back for Avatar 2 CRAZY!

In the first Avatar, Weaver’s scientist character died, but now she’s back as the protagonists’ adopted Na’vi daughter.

We were all surprised when we heard about 17 billion years ago that Sigourney Weaver would be back for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels (even more so than with the idea of there being multiple Avatar sequels). But now that we know how Weaver is going to come back, we’re even more confused.

AVATAR

Empire magazine has said that Weaver will play a completely different character in Avatar: The Way of Water. In the first movie, she played Dr. Grace Augustine, the creator of the Human-Na’vi switcheroo Avatar Program, who died at the end. And no, it’s not a human. It’s Jake and Neytiri’s daughter, who is about to turn 16.

Weaver will play Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted daughter. It looks like we’ll meet a lot of Jake and Neytiri’s family in The Way of Water. Weaver told Empire what it was like to play a digitized blue teenager, “I think we all pretty much remember how we felt when we were that age.” “Oh, yes, I do. When I was 11, I was 5’10” or 5’11” tall. I was sure Kiri would feel uncomfortable a lot of the time. She wants to find out who she is. When Jim gave me that task, I was thrilled.

Now, adults play children all the time, especially in the world of voice acting, and at least one of the photos Empire released of Kiri makes it look like Weaver will also show up as Dr. Augustine again in some way, probably through old footage. But knowing that the Na’vi are mostly brought to life by fancy mocap rigs, it will be strange to see Weaver’s physical performance put on a teenager. Even though he is a blue alien teen with long arms and legs, he is still a teen.

The movie Avatar: The Way of Water will come out in December 2022.

Disney will show new scenes from “Avatar: The Way of Water” 

Disney started its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona today with 12 minutes of footage from July’s Marvel fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder. Throughout the show, Disney showed trailers and looks at its other upcoming movies, including four never-before-seen scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.

Before the Thor footage, Disney’s Head of Global Theatrical Distribution Tony Chambers talked about the importance of immersive storytelling and the studio’s “robust, diverse slate.” This was followed by about 60 minutes of footage that was introduced by EMEA Head of Theatrical Distribution Nick Rush and EMEA Head of Studio Marketing Lee Jury.

There were prerecorded messages from people like Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who said, “It feels like we’re just getting started, even after 14 years.” As he introduced the Love And Thunder scenes, Thor star Chris Hemsworth said he wished he was in Barcelona, where the sangria “always tastes better.”

Harrison Ford sent a video for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5, saying that it had been 13 years since the last movie and that it was “time to put on the fedora and crack the whip.”

We also saw parts of Haunted Mansion, Pixar’s Elemental and Strange World, and the ensemble Amsterdam, which was directed by David O. Russell for New Regency.

Sam Mendes sent a video about Empire Of Light by Searchlight. The director of 1917 said that after making that movie, he wrote this one during lockdown. He said it was a “extremely personal story” about music, movies, and finding love in strange places.

Rebecca Kearey, the international head of Searchlight, showed a trailer for See How They Run, which stars Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan, and a teaser for The Banshees of Inisherin, which stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, directed by Martin McDonagh. Searchlight also showed the first scene of Chevalier, which is about the son of an African slave and a French plantation owner who grows up to be a famous composer in France.

The next movie by Thor director Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, got an eight-minute sneak peek. The movie is about the American Samoa soccer team. In 2001, they lost to Australia 31-0, which was the worst loss in World Cup history. Michael Fassbender takes over as their new coach.

Disney’s show ended with a visit from Avatar producer Jon Landau, who flew from New Zealand to Barcelona to talk about the next movie in the series. He said that Avatar: The Way of Water was in the final stages of post-production and that it was important to be in Barcelona “to show our support for the exhibition community.”

Landau said that the strength of James Cameron’s scripts is that they have universal themes. “There is nothing more relatable than family,” he said before showing a message from Cameron.

Cameron from New Zealand said that the people working on Avatar were “pushing the limits even further… Every shot is made for the biggest screen and best resolution that can be achieved… I think this is what people want.” He also said, “Our business is not going away.”

Sigourney Weaver Reveals Her Unconventional Role in ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Weaver will portray Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive child.

Many pondered what type of role Sigourney Weaver would have in the sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar after the death of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, who was the leader of the Avatar Program in the previous film. Finally, in an Empire Magazine exclusive, Weaver shared insights about the role she will portray in Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as a new photograph from the film.

Weaver announced to Empire Magazine that she would play Kiri, the adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa), in the film. “I believe we all remember what we were experiencing as teens,” Weaver told Empire Magazine exclusively. “I most definitely do. When I was 11, I was 5′ 10″ or 5′ 11″. I had a strong feeling Kiri would be uncomfortable a lot of the time. She’s trying to figure out who she is. Jim’s assignment of that task excited me.”

A fresh picture, which adds to the character’s mystery, has also been unveiled, hinting at some type of link that Kiri would have with Grace. Kiri is seen inside a lab, staring at a monitor with a recording of Grace on it. Despite not being biologically connected to Jake and Neytiri, Kiri seems to have human traits that other Na’vi do not have, such as five digits and eyebrows, adding to the character’s mystery.

Empire exclusive

With an obvious link between the two, as well as both characters being performed by the same actor, viewers can only guess on how significant Kiri’s involvement will be in the plot. The character will also appear on a subscriber-exclusive cover of Empire Magazine, which depicts her swimming underwater appreciating Pandora’s aquatic life, as shown in the first teaser.

Weaver and Cameron will work together again for Avatar: The Way of Water, having previously played Ellen Ripley in Aliens and Grace in the first Avatar film. Along with Weaver, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the man responsible for Grace’s death, in the sequel. Quaritch, like Weaver’s character, perished in the first film, fueling curiosity regarding his participation in Avatar: The Way of Water. While the roles of both actors remain unknown, fan speculation may continue until the highly anticipated film is released later this year.

On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively in cinemas.
