The Witcher franchise is truly a valley of plenty. Between the anime prequel and the other spinoffs now in development, Andrzej Sapkowski’s world appears to be expanding daily.
But all eyes are on Henry Cavill’s flagship show, not only because Geralt is attractive. The good news is that Netflix confirmed that season three would be released before season two. Seasons four and five have already been established but with a significant cast shift. More on that in a moment.
Part one of the season has already begun, and some significant revelations have created the basis for an exciting part two.
So saddle up your faithful steed and gather all the cash you can carry as we return to the Continent to find out what’s next in The Witcher season three part two.
The Witcher Season 3 Part 2 Release Date
Sound the alarm! The Witcher season three part one is finally available, and we impatiently await its return. Thankfully, we know when that will be, and it won’t be long before we’re back with The White Wolf and company.
Volume one of the third season will be released on Netflix on June 29, 2023, followed by volume two on July 27, 2023, according to the show’s official Twitter account.

There’s about a month between the two drops, so there’s plenty of time to process what happened at the Conclave and speculate on the ramifications.
Digital Spy heard from showrunner Lauren S Hissrich in November 2021 that the writers’ room had already begun working on season three material.
“We had some new people come in,” she explained, “and it was really interesting how it changed the dynamic of the room, to have this sort of new blood: people who had watched the first season, then screened the second season, and came in with fresh, new ideas, who sort of challenged me on things that I hadn’t thought about before.”
“What’s interesting is that we finished the scripts first, and only then did we start talking to the actors and directors and getting into the production constraints of turning these eight episodes into a full-length journey,” she explained.
“It’s important to me that the actors, for example, feel passionate about their journeys as well — that they understand the journeys of their characters.” So those are the dialogues that will begin soon.”

The Witcher Season 3 Part 2 Cast
Henry Cavill may be going, but he hasn’t yet hung up his silver wig, so expect to see him in volume two with our favorite characters who have helped make the show what it is.
• Freya Allan as Cirilla (aka Ciri)
• Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg
• Joey Batey as Jaskier
• Royce Pierreson as Istredd
• Anna Shaffer as Triss Merigold
• Kim Bodnia as Vesemir
Fans were surprised to learn about Cavill’s departure from the program when it was announced in late October 2022 that Liam Hemsworth would replace him as Geralt in season four.
Lauren Hissrich softened the blow by stating that the show would not conclude with Cavill’s departure.
“My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for season four,” Cavill stated in a statement released that day.
“In my place, the incredible Mr. Liam Hemsworth will take up the mantle of the White Wolf.” As with the best literary characters, I pass the torch with gratitude for the time spent as Geralt and excitement to witness Liam’s interpretation of this most fascinating and nuanced of men.
“Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.”
The departure of Henry Cavill from The Witcher was met with some consternation. Initial speculation stated that his planned return as Superman in the DC films significantly influenced his decision, but let’s hope not because it’s no longer happening.
Based on what we’ve seen so far in volume one, this hasn’t altered the story in season three, and we don’t expect it to in volume two, as it sounds like Cavill’s final appearance will give him the finale of his dedication to the character deserves.
“What’s interesting is that season three, to me, is the closest thing we’ve done as a one-to-one adaptation of the books,” Hissrich remarked (via EW).
“Obviously, we can’t do every page, but Time of Contempt provided us with so many big action events, plot points, defining character moments, and big bad reveals.” We could strictly stick to the books because there was so much to do.
“Geralt’s big turn is about abandoning neutrality and doing whatever it takes to get to Ciri.” And, even if it wasn’t written that way, it’s the most heroic sendoff we could have.
“When we return to Geralt in season four, he has a new mission in mind.” He’s not quite the Geralt we were expecting. That, by the way, is an understatement.”
The Witcher Season 3 Part 2 Plot
According to the show’s official synopsis, “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.”
“Through Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, hoping to learn more about the girl’s untapped powers; instead, they find themselves in a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery.” They must fight back, risking everything, or risk losing each other forever.”
The program lives up to its billing on that one, as the events of volume one happen precisely as predicted. Geralt is temporarily separated from Ciri and Yennefer as he pursues the mage hitman Rience, who has his sights set on Ciri.
Geralt reunites with the duo at Aretuza before the Conclave, which is organized to encourage peace and togetherness across the Continent.
Stregobor is rumbled for conspiring to abduct Ciri, kidnapping novice mages with elven blood, and stealing the book of Monoliths, which has the knowledge of how to eradicate the elven race once and for all. Towards the end of the series, it appears Stregobor has been set up as the scapegoat for the true rogue magician.
All evidence lead to Vilgefortz as the villain, but Geralt finds himself on the wrong end of Dijkstra’s sword before he can face him.
He hasn’t been cut or impaled yet, so don’t worry. When volume one comes to a close, he is only moments away from being in grave danger.
Volume one left us with our jaws on the floor, laying the groundwork for intense tension. Vilgefortz has some explaining, and we don’t think it will be without a few blows.
Dijkstra’s actions against Redania indicate that pockets of coalitions have been formed to fight The Brotherhood and Yennefer. Volume two will undoubtedly reveal who plays on which side of the fence.
Season three will be centered on The Time of Contempt, the second book in the Witcher narrative, according to Hissrich. In that book, Yennefer, Ciri, and Geralt travel to Aretuza, where a coup occurs, causing the trio to split up again.
While it’s important to realize that this blueprint can shift – as it frequently does in the translation from page to screen – we’ve already seen a very similar path in Yennefer, Ciri, and Geralt’s voyage to Aretuza, where a coup appears to be developing.
Ultimately, this means that things may not go as planned for everyone. Showrunner Hissrich said season three would have “a lot of action, some death… some death!” during a discussion at the Lucca Comics & Games Festival in Italy.
