Fans of Henry Cavill and his portrayal of Geralt of Rivia will be happy to know that The witcher season 3 is officially underway. The production shared a photo via their official Netflix account on Twitter. While the landscape is a familiar cold, frozen forest, we see Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer sitting together in their chairs while filming. There’s also a horse in the distance, though it’s probably not Geralt’s familiar best friend Roach. You can see the first image below:

With production already underway for the Henry Cavill-directed video game adaptation, it could mean fans won’t have to wait long for the witcher to return. Productions that often start at the beginning of the quarter of the year are often seen towards the end of that same year. This is just speculation, but it could happen. the witcher is arguably one of the best video game adaptations of all time. Cavill’s portrayal of Geralt was also one of the most praised. The witcher season 2 has an astounding 95% “Certified Fresh” review rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Although the audience score is well below 60%, it was still referred to as one of the best takes on the witcher.

Even more exciting than the announcement that The witcher season 3 is underway, Netflix’s Twitter page has also decided to treat fans with a plot preview of the upcoming season. We see an image of Geralt (Henry Cavill), Ciri, and Yennefer sitting next to each other, but more context is given via the official synopsis announcement that has been attached to the first look image. You can see the synopsis announcement below:

The witcher season 3 seems to raise the stakes for everyone involved. Ciri is tracked, a bit like in the video game: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Geralt receives a letter from his former lover, Yennefer, who tells him that his adopted daughter is in danger. Ciri is cast out due to her powers. She can control space and time like no one before, and naturally the forces of evil want to use her to their advantage. From the synopsis above, it looks like this storyline will be part of the central storyline for season three. Any chance of seeing Henry Cavill in a sword fight is going to be fantastic and protecting Ciri and a fortress sounds like that’s going to happen a lot in the upcoming season.

The first two seasons of the witcher came out during the winter months, so we can assume season three will follow the same formula. Both also contained eight episodes each. This could mean that the third season is destined to copy its predecessors. It has also been reported that Henry Cavill is unlikely to return because Superman, which could mean he has more time to devote to his other roles. Appearing in the witcher is the one that fans are going to go crazy for. While we’ve seen a clean-shaven Geralt so far, perhaps this could be the season in which we see the man sporting his signature white beard.
