Netflix Confirms The Witcher Season 3 Will Be Split Into Two Parts

The final season of The Witcher will be divided into two parts. Today, Netflix unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming third season of The Witcher and revealed that the upcoming season will be split into two parts.

“Volume 1” will air on June 29, while “Volume 2” will debut on July 27. The trailer for the third season shows Geralt facing off against an unknown threat, while The Wild Hunt hunts down Ciri.

The trailer also briefly shows off Rience, the fierce sorcerer and likely main antagonist of season three, who was recast and will now be played by Sam Woolf. The trailer ends with Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer facing off against an unknown threat in a garden, likely inside the Aretuza sorcerers’ stronghold.

Of course, The Witcher season three is notable as it will be Henry Cavill’s final season, though the show itself will continue. Considering that The Witcher seems to be adapting about one of the original Witcher books per season, it’s likely that Netflix will want to keep the show going for at least two more seasons to wrap up Geralt’s story. Geralt has already been recast, with Liam Hemsworth tapped to play the lead role going forward.

Fan reaction to Cavill’s departure has been mixed, with many citing Cavill’s alleged dissatisfaction with the show’s direction as a reason he’s moving on.

The Witcher will stream its new season on Netflix on June 29.
