As the teaser provides glimpses of below, Geralt, Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan) face major threats following the events of season 2. “Everything changes,” teases the trailer. As for Geralt: “For the first time, I understand real fear.”
Cavill will bid farewell to the Netflix series once season 3 wraps. Taking the lead in season 4 will be Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth, set to take on the mantle as Geralt of Rivia. And seeing as it’s Cavill last round, showrunner Lauren Hissrich is promising a big goodbye.
“Geralt’s big turn is about giving up neutrality and doing anything that he has to do to get to Ciri [Freya Allan]. And to me, it’s the most heroic sendoff that we could have, even though it wasn’t written to be that,” Hissrich told Entertainment Weekly back in December. “Geralt has a new mission in mind when we come back to him in season 4. He’s a slightly different Geralt than we expected. Now, by the way, that’s an understatement.”
The Witcher season 3 will be unfolding in two parts: the first five episodes land on June 29th and the final three episodes land on July 27th.
