The wait is finally over. The epic fantasy TV show The Witcher has revealed details about its upcoming season 3! The Netflix show, starring Henry Cavill, has amassed a huge fan following. Season 3 has recently entered the production stage, and to celebrate this milestone, Netflix has released the plot synopsis and an image from the first day back on set!
The plot, as released by Netflix, promises to be as much of an adventure as the previous seasons. The synopsis states that Geralt will take Ciri of Cintra into hiding while the monarchs, beasts, and mages try to capture her. Yennefer, who was entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, will lead the duo to the protected fortress of Azura where she hopes to discover more about Ciri’s untapped powers. However, according to the synopsis, instead of a peaceful journey, the trio lands themselves in a sinister battle of dark magic, corruption, and treachery and might have to fight for their lives and each other, or risk losing everything.
The photo is a behind-the-scenes shot featuring the actors hanging out between takes.
