Monster-hunter Geralt of Rivia is all set for his adventure again. OTT giant Netflix shared some shots revealing that the production of The Witcher season three has already started.
The picture shows Geralt (Henry Cavill), Ciri (Freya Allen), and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) sitting in a snow-clad field. However, it doesn’t reveal much about the upcoming season.
The newly-released official logline for season three 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 episodes of The Witcher season three will be directed by Stephen Surjik (Reacher, The Umbrella Academy), Gandja Monteiro (Brand New Cherry Flavor, The Chi), Loni Peristere (American Horror Story, A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Bola Ogun (Raising Dion, Lucifer).
The Witcher season one followed Geralt of Rivia, a witcher, as he traveled the continent looking for monsters to slay for coins while a war between Nilfgaard and the Northern Realms started brewing. Over the course of his adventures, he was thrown into the lives of Yennefer of Vengerberg and the Cintran princess, Cirilla. Despite his efforts to resist, he ultimately accepted the pull of destiny. Upon release, the series received widespread praise from audiences and went on to become one of Netflix’s best-performing series.
The Witcher season two predominantly adapted the events of Sword of Destiny and Blood of Elves, which saw Geralt and Ciri spend the winter at the witcher fortress of Kaer Morhen, where Ciri began training under the tutelage of Geralt and his fellow monster hunters: Lambert, Eskel, Coën and their mentor, Vesemir.
